Mental Health and the PhD: Repost

Last week I read this fantastic article about PhD culture and mental health that underscores the fact that the culture of Academia often accepts or even privileges the idea that if you’re not working yourself to the point of illness, you’re not doing your PhD right.

Today I’m resisting that urge to push myself to the point of exhaustion, and instead reposting this article to emphasize my agreement with the sentiments expressed therein.

Let’s not work ourselves to the ground, folks.

Take the time for self-care!
