PhD Unplugged

The coaching podcast for PhD students

Welcome to PhD Unplugged
Juggling all the different tasks in your PhD can be tough. How to start when work is piling up? How to perform well when there is so much pressure? How to relax when work is always on your mind? How to make plans when the future is uncertain?

In 𝐏𝐡𝐃 𝐔𝐧𝐩𝐥𝐮𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐝, we bring together PhD students and professional coaches. Every podcast episode, we will talk about common struggles and how to overcome them.

Information Overload

Episode 5

PhD students have to gain an in-depth understanding of the topic under study. Immersing ourselves in our work is crucial. Yet, high engagement can also slow us down when we get lost in details. To avoid falling down the ‘rabbit hole’, and losing sight of what is important, we need to set boundaries. In this episode, we speak to PhD student Charlotte Vaassen and psychologist and professional coach Christianne Vink about how to nourish moments of flow while limiting our tendency to ‘overshoot’.
