Finishing Strong in Graduate School: Preventing Burnout – Tuesday, November 15 from 4-5pm
When it’s crunch time, we can push ourselves to the point of burnout, and once we’re truly burned out it may take a long time to recover. If we catch it early, we can stop ourselves from getting so overwhelmed that we shut down. We’ll talk about how to know when you’re getting close to burnout, and ways you can prevent it. REGISTER HERE
