Self‐Care Is Not the Enemy of Performance

Thursday, March 05, 2020
B9200 @ 3:30 p.m.

Host: Graduate Students

Abstract

The highly competitive nature of academic environments might seem to suggest that success can only be obtained at the cost of taking good care of oneself. However, sacrificing self‐care can be extremely harmful. In this interactive seminar, we will discuss ways that high performance and self‐care can be mutually reinforcing and produce long‐term success. A key goal is for each person to take away a set of practical strategies and habits they can employ to support their mental and physical health while also supporting their future success in research.
