Motivation During Crisis (April 15, 2020)
From Janna Lamey
Maintaining motivation for graduate students can be a struggle at times, especially true in times of crisis. And, right now, given all of the changes, threats to security and personal health, emotional toll of anxiety and social isolation, and just outside influences, it is common for students to experience difficulties in keeping motivation levels high as it once was.
Learn more about (lack of) motivation,
especially in the time of crisis, and to learn some tools and strategies about
how to regain some motivation, balance, and show compassion towards
oneself. Suggestions will be offered about how to get unstuck, grow
through challenges, and maintain engagement. Half of the session will be
hearing from a content expert, the second half of the session is designed to
have facilitated conversation about the material.
