Show Notes

Responding to a podcast member question, Karen and Kel talk about how to manage sensory overload in academic settings. We discuss how to extract yourself politely from overwhelming interactions-whether personal or professional (or in that weird academic way – both at the same time), and how to get familiar with your inner cues that you’re fast approaching overwhelm. Academia trains this kind of self-knowledge out of us, but you CAN get it back.

Ep. 2:38 This Summer: Be Kind To Yourself

Summer is imminent… but, are you even ready? How to even think about it after the trauma of the past year or more? Karen and Kel talk about lightening your load, taking things off your list, and keeping an eye on your BIG goal, which might be “getting healthy” or “leaving the academy,” or “finding gainful employment.”  The key is to keep reducing the demands on yourself until you’ve targeted the least you can do, and the most you can rest, while still moving incrementally toward that larger goal. Most of all: just rest.       [Become a subscribing member for just $3.99 a month and get access to our subscriber only goodies like free webinar recordings, AMAs, the chance to suggest topics, early access to the podcast video that we record in our house in Oregon, and — new from this week – live videos with Karen and Kel on Friday mornings, all on our dedicated podcast member page on Mighty Networks!
