The Three Steps to De-Stress During PhD Studies

I've been horrible about posting lately. I'm so swamped with the grant, studying, working out, and everything else in my life that the last thing I feel like doing is sitting BACK down at my computer (after a day at work in front of a computer) and writing more. I asked a very wise PhD student friend of mine how she handles stress. Her three keys to success are my new mantra:
  1. Be aware of the dates that end the current stress, and take comfort in knowing that each hour and each day that passes, you are one step closer to relaxing.
  2. Realize that you are lucky to be doing what you are doing, and that you are blessed to be in the healthy and happy circumstance to be earning your PhD and becoming a doctor.
  3. Don't look at it all as work. Just do it, knowing that it must be done, don't dread it, just work through it slowly, methodically, understanding that this is your life right now, and these tasks must be taken care of. Soon enough, other events will take their place, and you will be smiling and at peace.

Francine, I hope you don't mind me posting your advice. I just thought it was beautiful & so helpful.

Two posts in one night! (pats self on back) I will return following my neuroscience final on Monday. (Maybe I'll pop in once or twice before then!)
