In these hectic times, as professionals we are not immune to the harmful effects of stress. Graduate students are particularly vulnerable. Time management and stress management are life skills that are often disregarded, ineffective, and simply part of one’s wishful thinking. The sentiments of “I wish I could do it better” and “I wish I could learn to relax” do not always result in the desired outcomes. This workshop will specifically target graduate students and will discuss tools to aid in effective time management, and specific strategies and techniques to manage stress. Participants will learn the keys to time management and strategies to alleviate stress. Successfully navigating graduate school is due in part to how well you manage requirements and timeframes. Come prepared for an interactive workshop in which practical information and techniques will be addressed.
