Learning to unplug
Nestled in a state park, the wedding was a perfect opportunity to take a break from my Ph.D. and celebrate the union of my close friends. But my mind was somewhere else.

I spotted an urgent message from one of my collaborators, outlining analyses they needed me to complete for a manuscript resubmission. I pocketed my phone, but the damage was done: For the rest of the weekend my mind was thrust back into research mode, anxiously trying to figure out how I was going to get the work done. > “I began to push back on my habit of mindlessly reaching for my phone.” Throughout grad school, establishing a healthy work-life balance was a challenge.

No one else appeared to be bothered by his demanding work routine.
