  1. When I started my PhD I was sick of my 12-12/7 habit I had with my masters, So i treat my PhD as a job working 9-5 and having weekends off where possible. So far it’s working…

    …and muay thai once a week to blow off steam.

    • Wow, muay thai is a little more extreme than ironing. But I hear you. As soon as I stopped “working” ridiculously long hours and taking weekends off I felt more productive and much more in control. Hope it keeps working for you!
