Does anyone have a strategy for balancing academic coursework, research, and personal life?

Any advice or insights would be greatly appreciated.


Hi Erika,

To put it simply, strict limits to where you use your research time. Excel has a to-do list function where you can set small tasks and tick them off. Don't let your down time be eaten up by preparations for work - it's not worth it. Talk with new people often (work and non-work related) and write small pieces of work regularly.

All the best!
