Identifying Priorities for Work/Life Balance

Obtaining a healthy work/life balance is essential for graduate students. By creating a work/life plan, students can decrease stress and increase productivity. We offer the following suggestions as a start to setting priorities for a health work/life balance: identify goals and priorities (both personal and academic), discontinue unnecessary or unhealthy activities, and follow a schedule that includes personal time. Taking time for you is arguably the most important aspect of a healthy work/life balance because if you do not, others will not be able to rely on you either.
