It’s time for a very honest and, for me, rather vulnerable #RealTalkTuesday.
I’ve been debating whether or not I should post this picture of myself, but I think it’s time we start being more transparent and open about #academiclife instead of perpetuating and glorifying the ivory tower mentality. And for me something like this is as unfiltered as life can get. So this is me... makeup free and covered in stress hives. It is probably also the least flattering picture I’ll ever post of myself.
The truth about #PhDlife/academic life is that it is fucking stressful, and intense and on-going stress takes a massive toll on our bodies. We often talk about the mental and emotional side effects of stress in academia, but we don’t spend enough time discussing how stress and the demands of academia impact us physically.
The emotional and mental impacts of stress are compounded by a whole host of physical side effects (see my insta story highlights for what the community has to say), and for me stress causes:
1) sleeplessness and insomnia;
3) weight gain;
4) poor immune system;
5) adult acne;
7) teeth grinding;
8) intense physical pain and tension;
9) stomach pain and digestive issues;
and, as I just found out, 10) stress hives all over my body and face.
I’m not posting this as a deterrent for those of you considering #gradschool, but rather as a reality check. We need to shift the culture in academia to not only value successful and productive academics, but also healthy, happy human beings.
I’m working to reduce stress in my own life, put up better boundaries with my work, and take better care of myself overall — I hope you will, too! Because the toxic culture of academia will only start to change when we begin to resist the demands and implement healthy practices in our own lives.
If you’re willing, please share your experiences with stress and the physical impacts it has on you. You can do this in the comments section below or through a post — if you write your own post and tag @academeology I will repost!

Today’s program focus:
Combined degrees! How about getting two degrees in just six years? What if one of those degrees was a Law degree? What if you could also study in the U.K.? Then look at the combined
Law and Arts / Law and Business (LL.B.& B.A. / LL.B. & B.B.A) at Trent University and Swansea University in Wales.
In this one-of-a-kind program, you will undertake either a Bachelor of Arts Honours or a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Trent, while also obtaining a law degree from Swansea University’s renowned Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law in the UK.
How does it work?
The first two years of your degree take place at Trent, where you’ll pursue your choice of six degree options. In your third year, you’ll transfer to the picturesque coastal city of Swansea in Wales to complete three years of law studies, earning your Bachelor of Laws degree. Once your LL.B. is complete, you’ll return to Trent and receive your Honours degree credentials. By simultaneously taking several Canadian Law courses in your final years, you’ll be well-prepared for the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) exams, enabling you to take the other required steps to practice law in Canada.

The University of Coimbra has been addressing these challenges in the context of its Energy for Sustainability (EfS) Initiative, bringing together professors and researchers from the Faculties of Science and Technology, Economics and Psychology and Educational Sciences.
