Dissertation Made Easy –15– Not Neglecting Family & Friends

If you are a doctoral Candidate or even if you are still in classes and have not risen to candidacy yet, there is no doubt that you are busy. If you are working at the time that complicates matters even more. Since you don’t get additional hours in your day spending time with family and friends which doesn’t come with a deadline are often neglected. As much as you can, avoid making that mistake. As people who love you, yes they do need to be understanding of the fact that you are on this doctoral journey. Many will and others you will have to bring to that understanding. Take the time to do it. Friends, spouses, children and other relatives still want to be an active part of your life, even when time does not permit. To prevent completely neglecting them, schedule them into your weeks. Plan a date night with the hubby. Organize an outing with the children. GO TO Sunday dinner at your parents’ home (notice I said GO TO Sunday dinner- don’t get caught up hosting it because you don’t have that kind of time). Meals are always an ideal way to get together because no matter what you still have to eat, so if planned right you hit 2 birds with one stone. Incorporate them in the things that you have to do anyways ie: food, church, exercise, ect., that allows you to stay in the loop while meeting you self-care needs.  This, like all journeys, will eventually come to an end, and you will have more time available to do everything. You just don’t want to walk across that stage and realize that you’ve missed the last 2 years.
