I started advocating for improving #AcademicMentalHealth just over a year ago, and have been blown away with the community on here. I've worked on increasing awareness of mental health issues and reducing the stigma. Here is an outline of my projects ⬇️ 1/n https://t.co/lW6sXpNupg

Setting boundaries can feel almost impossible with a power dynamic for fear of retaliation, like not getting a good reference letter. We don't talk about this enough. #AcademicChatter

Being productive ≠ waking up super early & working super late Being productive = managing your personal capacity & work boundaries however you need to @AcademicChatter

The concept of "golden hours" has changed my relationship with work. None of us sit efficiently for 8 hours a day doing work. It's easy to be hard on ourselves for not achieving that, but it's not realistic.

Does anyone else have albums that you listen to constantly on repeat for a long period of time, then just move on?

Those saying rising Covid case numbers (today over 16,000 in UK) don't matter because deaths are low. No, they do matter, because #LongCovid. It really is as simple as that. They matter.

Simultaneously knowing you look good on paper, but feeling like you are worth nothing on the inside. Depression sucks.

Being a hard worker doesn't make you a good person. Character is defined by your ethics, not just by your work ethic. No matter how much drive and dedication you bring to the task, people won't fully trust you until you've shown generosity and integrity in the relationship.

Wanting to "only" work a 5 day work week isn't lack of passion or motivation. It's wanting to: -Not burn out -Not be exploited -Be passionate about other things -Be recognised as a human being
