Work Life Balance for Academics:
How to go from Guilt and Stress to Peace and Productivity
Facilitator: Kathryn Gines, PhD
Are you stressed about being a successful academic and a good partner/parent?

Do you have guilt about how much time you spend on work when you want to be with your loved ones?

Do you feel like you have to "do it all” (on campus and at home)?

Have you fallen into the "busy” trap?

In this guest expert workshop, we will explore multiple areas of our lives that we are trying to balance, consider challenges to living a more balanced life, outline common mistakes that result in imbalance, and identify strategies for going from guilt and stress to peace and productivity.
