Is Work-Life Balance in Science Possible?

Is Work-Life Balance in Science Possible?

This is a science podcast, so why am I talking about work-life balance? Because so many scientists are bad at it!

I can’t even tell you how many scientists brag about working 60 or even 80 hours a week. It seems like everyone is doing it. But there’s a great cost…

This begs the question – is it possible to be successful as a scientist and work 40 hours a week? Or even less? Actually have a life outside of science? 

The answer is YES. 

In this podcast, I talk about how you can achieve work-life balance while still being a successful scientist.
