Today I want to talk about #TheDarkSideOfScience.
More specifically about the fact that *science is hard*
*By the way, negative results are still results!
(Just to say it again)
There's too much focus on publication=success, while there are many other factors in play!
With extra work, a lot of hours at the gym, a very stressful viva, a summer of major revisions, I have currently resubmitted my thesis. 💪💪
(Oh, I've been saying I'm in my "last year of my PhD" for way too long!)
In fact, PhD students are especially susceptible to mental health issues such as anxiety and depression...
The long working hours, the work pressure, the "failure",... it all creates a stressful environment.
Let's do something and change it!
(First, I'm gonna work on my physical health - gym time!)
