I don’t have much to add to the post I shared about a year ago on Thanksgiving.
Simply: Being thankful really helps.
Like last year, being thankful has really helped me and my family throughout 2021. The special occasion of Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated in the UK, but the act of giving thanks is a valuable one.
What are you thankful for about your PhD journey?
If you’re getting ready for your viva what are you thankful for in your prep?
Being thankful for things that have gone well or worked out, for the resources and means to do well, for supporters big and small – all of these can help with feeling good for the viva. Being thankful helps to put things into perspective and can help remind you that things do go well – when things are hard, there are still good things happening.
