From Surviving to Thriving 2: Managing Your Procrastination

Tue 12 Mar 2024


From Surviving to Thriving: strategies to do your research and wellbeing just a little bit better.

While a joyful curiosity might be the fuel of research, doing it day-to-day can be really tough. The purpose of this programme is to help researchers move – even just a little bit – from a sense of merely surviving within the research process to thriving within it. Eschewing the hyperbole of the self-help industry, this programme provides participants with practical tools and strategies grounded in the psychological literature to help you do your research and nurture your wellbeing just a little bit better.

Whilst this programme of five sessions has been designed as a set, with each building on the one before – as participants move from a sense of ‘surviving’ to ‘thriving’ – each individual session is standalone, meaning you can book and attend the whole series or just those which you think may be particularly useful.

Managing Your Procrastination

This session aims to help you manage your procrastination by:

  • Exploring the two fundamental principles to overcome putting things off;
  • Helping you build your own individual toolkit of strategies and simple ‘tricks and tips’ to help you manage your procrastination;
  • Helping you reflect on why you procrastinate and the most important thing you need to know to overcome it.
Target audience

This course is for all PhD Students, all levels, all disciplines.


Instructions will be sent out 3 working days in advance, along with link to join online
