You need to look after yourself. This book is a selection of strategies that people have used to stay well during their PhD, post-doc or research career.

The weekly planner consists of 52 tips to help you stay well. Each page has space for you to plan out your research activities for that week. The planner is gummed on the top edge so you can tear out a page and pin it to the wall or a noticeboard. The tips are based on the book 52 Way to Stay Well: during your PhD, postdoc or research career.
