“Don’t Let It Weigh You Down: How to Deal with Mental Workload and Empower Yourself”
As students and researchers, you shoulder great responsibility: meeting academic expectations and carrying a considerable mental workload while taking care of yourself and your mental health to prevent crisis or burnout. Don’t let this weigh you down! This interactive and pragmatic lecture illustrates how you can deal with your mental workload to master the demands and challenges of the academy. We will first focus on the factors creating such mental workload, and explore their impact on your health and productivity. The interactive lecture then explains how you can deal with them using resilience and other practical tools in your daily and weekly routines. My goal is to familiarise you with ready-to-use methods which strengthen your long-term productivity and mental health, ultimately empowering you to stand your ground in the academic arena.
