Postdoc Academy Masterclass: Protect Focus

Mon 22 Jan 2024


Do you struggle to stay focused and be as productive as you would like?

There are many factors that can distract you from maximising your productivity such as stress, procrastination and competing priorities.

The aim of Protect Focus is to help you establish protective habits that optimise focus and manage distractions using simple techniques proven by science to help postdocs:

  • plan your calendar for the week ahead to protect dedicated focus hours for the most important work
  • recap on the neuroscience of focus and plan your 'flow state ritual'
  • plan a daily 'Restorative Break', to relieve stress, reduce self-criticism and strengthen resilience
  • learn how to strengthen relationships to increase your confidence and protect from feelings of isolation.

After the session we will be supporting you with a range of mini sessions you can drop into over the next 4 weeks.

PLEASE NOTE: You must complete the facilitator's Zoom registration form to access your personalised meeting link. See joining instructions for further details.
