It’s been a while since I’ve managed to get around to posting here. You could say that things have ‘changed gear’ now that I’m in the latter stages of my PhD. But as it is Mental Health Awareness week I wanted to share something that I’ve pondered over myself, which may be useful to you too. I was at the BPS Annual Conference recently, and during a talk we were asked to talk about ourselves when we felt ‘at our best’.
