What is work-life integration? Isn’t the phrase supposed to be work-life balance? As much as we would like to achieve a balance between work and life, more often than not, one dominates the other. As graduate students, our primary focus is research. However, what activities can we do outside of research and the lab? How can we manage to have a life while being happy and healthy? What resources and strategies are there to make me-time a priority? How can I make the most out of graduate school? Samantha Yee, a 4th year Ph.D. student in the Risinger Lab at UT Health San Antonio in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, provides her insight on and strategies for work-life integration while making the most out of graduate school.
