Tools for your PhD Journey...

I have found a list of “22” things which I have found quite helpful over the years as a researcher, writer and designer.

A 🧵

@PhDVoice @ThePhDPlace @PhD_Genie @PhDspeaks @CouragePhD @AcademicChatter @OpenAcademics #phdchat #scicomm @PhDForum
1. Digital notebooks like @Labstep and a physical notebook: To write your experiments, short and long-term goals, updates etc.

2. Portable reading tools like @AmazonKindle or iPad. It's easy to carry (anywhere), read, highlight, and jot down notes.
3. Bibliography manager: Not a secret anymore! You can use @zotero and @mendeley_com. Also, @ConnectedPapers to build a graph of similar papers.

4. @unpaywall to access the full text of scholarly articles.

#Medium #Mediumship, was reading an old #Tufts@TuftsDaily⁩ article from 2008 interviewing ⁦@jessicaalba⁩ about her film #TheEye, watched the trailer:

A study published in the International Journal of Social Sciences found that software developers are more likely to experience weakness, burnout, anxiety, and stress than their colleagues who perform mechanical tasks.
Over 80K developers participated in Stack Overflow’s 2021 Developer Survey in which 10% of respondents reported having a mental health issue, anxiety, and depression being the most common. Mental health issues are significantly prevalent among software engineers.

🧵(@manijadegarcia) Whew, responding to the twitter chat from yesterday stirred up a lot for me. After a break I will return to discuss some ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing. I used the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

(@manijadegarcia) #Acceptance is a key feature of many eastern belief systems (e.g. #Buddhism & #YogaPhilosophy) & shows up in some Western therapies (e.g. #mindfulness #ACT & #RadicalAcceptance in #DBT).

Acceptance has many layers that apply to #MentalHealth & #Disability

2/
(@manijadegarcia) Important point: #acceptance does NOT mean to agree with or like something. It's about doing your best to accept the REALITY of something, including the emotions it may stir.

Acceptance may not always feel good, but I have found it to be good for me.

#mindfulmonday THREAD & we're all about gratitude! It starts with us as parents, carers, caregivers, grown ups. Show up for your little one's by helping them appreciate the small things in life. The things that make the 🌎 beautiful, sparkle, shine.
We know it's been a tough year. We've been #homeschooling, #parentinginapandemic and working. It's been rough, full stop. But remember the clapping, the rainbows, the neighbourly kindnesses. That's the human in us all shining through.
This week, try to focus on #gratitude. 🙏

Here's some ideas! 👇👇 What works for you?

🏺Make a gratitude jar together
👀 Spend some time appreciating your surroundings together
💬 Talk about what makes your little ones happy. Tell them.

How do you show up for yourself? Inspire me! Tell us in the comments 👇
We've been talking about rest + how you look after yourself. How do you do that? Sometimes I struggle. As a self-employed entrepreneur, a parent, and a 'Doer', I find it hard to rest.

But being diagnosed with a life changing #chronicillness six years ago meant I had to find a way to rest. In part that fuelled my decision to start meditation practice. Then more recently, I've had another health diagnosis, and even my consultant mentioned last week...

...that I might want to think about paring back what I do everyday. It's tiring managing your health, looking after a child, cooking dinners, washings, working two jobs, keeping up with the school emails (is it dress down, or dress up day!!!?).....etc....etc.....etc!

Alexander's last 3 wishes. A thread.
Alexander had created one of the largest empires in history by the age of 30, stretching from Greece to northwestern #India.

He was undefeated in battle and is widely considered as one of history's most successful military commanders.
Once he was returning home after conquering many kingdoms. On his way back, he fell ill. Physicians tried their best to cure him but couldn't, which resulted in his death at age 32.

Legend says these were Alexander's last 3 wishes. Over 2300 yrs later these are still applicable.

" Zen and the Art of Happiness "

It's a simple book but it makes you think .

Few of my takeaways ( with random 2 min doodles).
👇
Firstly,
What is Zen ?

#Zen is a Japanese word that is derived from the Sanskrit word Dhyana meaning "Meditation" .
2/21
Zen is a journey of exploration & a way of living that , in and of itself doesn't belong to any one religion or tradition as such.

Zen doesn't teach. It merely
points, enabling us to wake up & become aware.

Ever noticed how zen stories rarely have predefined morals? 🤓
3/21

The zen of doing anything is doing it with a concentration of mind , a calmness & simplicity of mind, that brings the experience of enlightenment and, through that experience , happiness.

It could be something as mundane as sweeping or peeling potatoes !

If you don’t recognize it, ask yourself whether your goals and/or identity align with power, privilege, structural inequity

..and in how many domains?

How complex or intersectional is your identity?

Centering on self is the best way to misinterpret the world around you.
If you start by asking yourself questions

you will start to learn to ask others questions, not assume

One version is called “the beginner’s mind” or a child-like curiosity about the world that promotes learning & understanding

Opposite of expert

This is interesting research: For a modern #mindfulness practice, having a community and a teacher might be much more important than previously thought.

It really supports me in my design decisions of my online #mindfulness program. It's a cohort based program with lots of interaction over 8 weeks.

That gives the space to create community in which each of us can open up and witness the opening in others - an exploration supported by building up the #mindfulness skills in parallel. #Achtsamkeit

I went to India some years ago to see the Dalai Lama at the Kalachakra Tour of World Peace. I met a local chef and we became pen pals. He has always balanced his work and caring for his parents. His father is blind. 1/4
During covid many people lost their jobs. He was one of them. They do not have the welfare system that Australia has. One night he phoned me in crisis. He had attempted to take his life. We got him to safety. He was able to recover. With permission to share he just sent this: 2/4

How can we make this world a better place in ~10 mins & help manifest our dreams?

#Mindfulness #mentalhealth #motivation
We are about to share a secret!

Essentially, what is a lifetime of struggle for an average human, is simply a momentary effort for the universal consciousness.
Each one of us is like a cell in the Universal Body. On our own, our existence is infinitely small. On a collective scale though, every individual is critical to the existence of the universe.

Firstly what is #IKIGAI ?

The Japanese call it - A REASON TO JUMP OUT OF BED EACH MORNING.

It's a convergence of 4 things .
*What you love
*What you are good at
*What you can get paid for
*What the world needs .

We need to find our Ikigai in life!

Let's begin with DAILY HEALTH HABITS.

A SOUND MIND IN A SOUND BODY .

Both our MIND & BODY must be exercised well to avoid deterioration in latter years of life .

Have a mental workout routinely by stepping out of your COMFORT ZONE.
Expose yourself to CHANGE.

I used to think Meditation was mainly a stress reduction technique; I was wrong.

Here's why I meditate:

👇 A short thread on meditation. 🧵
It's true. Stress reduction IS a positive side-effect of mediation, just like it is a positive side-effect of physical exercise.

However, the real benefit of meditation is so much greater than mere stress relief.
Meditation is an exercise to strengthen the mind, just like working out is an exercise to strengthen the body.

And just like working out, a session can be difficult and tiring, and at the same time, be incredibly beneficial for your growth.

What is your secret mantra of being decisive & not procrastinating?

#Mindfulness #MentalHealthAwareness #motivation
"If you want to learn swimming, sooner or later, you will have to jump into the water. There is no other way."

Choose that one important thing you always wanted to do, and then do it today.

#Mindfulness #MentalHealthAwareness #motivation
Do you suffer from indecisiveness? It is a kind of mental shortcoming, a weakness. Those who are afraid of making choices often keep delaying their decisions. In decision making, there is a false belief that the longer you wait, the better it will be.

🗣Wie angekündigt versuche ich jetzt twitter kompatibel das 🧠#Achtsamkeit straining MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) vorzustellen. Obwohl es aufgrund der Studienlage in die S 3 Leitlinien geschafft hat als Rückfallprophylaxe bei rez #Depressionen, ist es im 1/9

vielleicht kann ich auch d einen oder anderen Vorbehalt ausräumen. Kritische Diskurse über 🧘‍♀️#Meditation (früher sprach man nicht v Achtsamkeit) gab es fast in jedem Jahrzehnt, in den 80ern (damals fing ich während d Studiums an zu meditieren) war man (an d Uni)Aussenseiter 3/9
