Self-Development Days
Isaac has a good article on building selfdev days to improve yourself.

I've been doing something similar, in the sense that i've blocked out hours every week in office to do
- book catch-ups, on topics that i'm interested in.
- testing non-work related software
- visioning of how the system will look like in the future
- initial look into any other subjects

This has helped to clear out some of the bad fuzz from myself mentally. Listening to some audiobooks from books by the Dalai Lama, others on ancient greek philosphies, Roman empires and the usual old time radio helps too.

Combining this tip on consuming information on new subjects will help to bring things up to speed.
