In this webinar, we explore cognitive, emotional and behavioral tools that scholars can use to increase their productivity without increasing the amount of time they spend writing. This webinar is designed scholars throughout their academic careers, from doctoral students to full professors. Skills taught include developing health sustainable writing sessions, use of rituals and habits, self-talk and short meditation sessions.
