hi everyone, I have seen this phenomenon many times. People who used to be fascinated about physics no longer love physics anymore because of the stress/classes/jobs. One of my friend has had this issue and I had this also a while ago and it is coming back up. I would like to open this thread for people to post some positive tips for having fun with physics. One thing that is true for me is that I never want to be pushed. I feel like physics is like rock climbing, whenever I am pushed or I want to push myself, I run into anxiety. I feel like doing physics is like solving a puzzle. One have to go through the process of confusion to reach the ultimate joy. And being calm is absolutely crucial to it. Another thing is the motivation. I find it really hard to go to class, read the textbook and solve the homework problems just to get a good grade. What I often do, as well as my friends, is to find some problems that I am interested and try to play around with it using what's in the book.In fact, one of my professor once said that people never learn from reading books. They only learn from doing problems.
