Tackling stress and anxiety, one experiment at a time.
“It’s hard to hold a candle in the cold November rain.” - Axl Rose (of Guns N’ Roses) has also been lead singer of AC/DC since 2016.
Hello fellow Beautiful Voyagers,
November’s here. Cue the start of the holidays and the pile-up of work at the office and school. It’s a moment when many of us are saying: “Hello, ol’ friend anxiety!”
As I mentioned in my intro letter, the Beautiful Voyager is introducing a new kind of advice column.
At the BV, we are all advice columnists.
Here’s how it works: I share a question that’s been on my mind. Then you share your advice. With your responses, I’ll be able to generate a list of insightful tips for fellow BVs to refer to in high-stress moments.
I’ve been having trouble striking a balance between work and other projects with my social life. What are ways you approach anxiety management in high-stress times? How do you monitor your over-thinking and negative thoughts when papers and work from beloved professors and/or bosses are piling up? What do you do when suddenly, it seems as though deadlines are running a marathon right at you?
Please share your thoughts by responding to this email or commenting on this post. I’m looking forward to reading your advice!
At the age of 43, I had never had a relationship last more than a year. My colleagues in comedy suggested that it was par for the course in our business, and that paired with my psychiatric issues, I might never be eligible for lifelong commitment.
