The CGED invites you to a workshop with Professor Dina Iordanova titled Achieving in Academia and Wellbeing. This session encourages an open and frank discussion of the difficulties in reconciling personal satisfaction/well-being and academic achievement. We will discuss the impact of sedentary lifestyles, stress, and socially acceptable addictions. Issues that will be touched on include body armour, capacity for enjoyment, slowing down, hormonal balance/menopause, medical and personal narratives of emotional and physical health, and the role of exercise. Time and context permitting, we may also engage in some light breathing exercises.
