The Doctorate

Are you a PhD student or a Post-Doctoral researcher and struggling to manage your time, finances and balancing life priorities? This blog is for early-career academics looking for a community to share their experiences and discover strategies for coping with the various challenges from anxiety and mental health management, to financial and time management. This blog aims to provide you with the support you need to stay motivated and passionate about your work, your research, and life in general.

In this blog, I share with you my personal journey through my PhD and post-PhD life, the challenges I faced and continue to face, and the tools and tricks I used to help me overcome those challenges. I am an Environmental Sociologist, so most of my material is from my particular disciplinary perspective. But I will be sharing experiences from all different disciplines. So I hope you find this blog useful, inspiring and supportive.
