A PhD is a challenging yet rewarding experience. Looking after ourselves along the journey – physically, mentally and otherwise – is crucial to be able to think creatively, problem solve and deal with complex ideas. It also helps our ability to cultivate resilience and, importantly, to enjoy the PhD experience! In the context of the global pandemic, this year has presented extra challenges to ourselves personally and as researchers, and so the festive break will be especially important to be able to indulge in some much needed PhD self-care.
Led by Stephanie Cox, this session will consider the experience of undertaking a PhD. Stephanie will discuss some of the neurology behind how we approach challenging tasks and tools to help us along the way. The session will include a guided relaxation. Participants will also receive a self-care audio file to put into practice some of things we cover outside of the session.
