Things you shouldn't feel guilty about...️ Academia edition!
One of the greatest issues in depleting graduate students' mental health is the GUILT surrounding the necessary self-care activities. Next time you feel guilty about:
Asking For Help
Rescheduling a meeting
Taking a break
Having "work hours"
Saying NO to more work
Taking a Mental Health day
Wanting to eventually leave academia...
Remind yourself that IT'S OKAY!
Your mental health matters more than:
Finishing a manuscript 2 days earlier.
Suffering to stay awake
Dreading your studies.
Take care of yourself 💓
