Work/Life Balance for Academics: How to move from Guilt and Strain to Peaceful Productivity
- 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 workshop we will discuss multiple areas of our lives that we are trying to balance (note: it is so much more that just work/life 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.
