Working as an academic is such a privilege. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it actually felt like a privilege?
Maybe just daring to face the shadow sides of our academic environment, facing our shadow sides and being able to laugh about our encounters help us on our way. In fact, I believe that the way in which we handle insensitive remarks and small, thoughtless sentences in email traffic, and also how we make space for meaningful encounters and inspiring connections influences the way in we which care for ourselves in the academic environment.
In these posts you can follow my reflections on daily academic practices. I hope they will inspire you to reflect upon your daily practices in a truthful and meaningful manner. In the end: you are brining you to your workfloor, every single day.
Allow yourself to be your healthiest, happiest you, especially if it takes seriously respecting your boundaries.
