gorgeous girl, you study. you work. you put yourself together every day. you are loyal and respectful. you are beautiful inside and out. you have visions and plans for the future. who doesn't value that, doesn't deserve you.
(inspired by raia lei, on pinterest)

Little bit of personal posting so turning off reblogs
Had a debrief meeting with my PI today before I head off on my summer break, and we talked about my ADHD. He proceeded to tell me the story of a former grad student of his that got diagnosed with ADHD in the middle of their PhD as well, took an entire year off, came back and wrote an incredible thesis, and my PI said he has no doubt I could do the same and he understands that I need the few months off
Anyways if you'll excuse me I'll be crying and remembering why I chose this lab and remembering that there's a spark of hope in the hellscape of academia

17.06.2024 // came home at the end of May for a month and hence, the lack of posts! I got done with my coursework and now the focus is on my ethics application. It's quite nerve-racking but it has proven to be a good anchor and guiding post for my thesis.
I'll continue to be away from tumblr because I'm trying to live from day to day and it is good to be away from social media from time to time. I have been turning inward, focussing on myself and trying to be patient.

microhabits for a better life
microhabits are small, everyday behaviours that compound over time and can lead to significant changes. these tiny actions, which can take as little as 15 seconds, require minimal effort but yield substantial benefits when practised consistently. by focusing on microhabits, you break down ambitious goals into manageable steps that you build over extended periods.
microhabits work due to several psychological and behavioural factors. let's explore why they're effective:
microhabits have minimal barriers to entry. they’re so small that you can easily start them without much effort or resistance. for instance, doing one push-up or writing a single sentence in your journal requires very little activation energy.
consistently practising microhabits builds momentum over time. when you perform a tiny action daily, it reinforces positive behaviour and creates a sense of accomplishment. this consistency helps you stay on track toward your larger goals.
neuroplasticity! our brains adapt to repeated behaviours. by consistently practising microhabits, you strengthen neural pathways associated with those actions. over time, these pathways become more automatic, making it easier to maintain the habit.
microhabits shape your self-image. when you consistently label yourself as someone who meditates for a minute each day or reads a page before bed, it reinforces that identity. you’re more likely to continue the behaviour because it aligns with who you believe you are.
celebrating small victories boosts motivation. completing a microhabit provides a sense of achievement, even if it’s minor. these wins encourage you to keep going and build positive associations with the habit.
when establishing microhabits, it's essential to be aware of potential pitfalls. here are some common ones to watch out for:
setting unrealistic expectations: starting with overly ambitious microhabits can lead to frustration. instead, choose tiny actions that you can consistently perform without feeling overwhelmed.
skipping counting or accountability: not tracking your progress can hinder success. use a simple system (like a checklist or app) to monitor your daily microhabit completion. accountability helps maintain consistency.
neglecting consistency: microhabits rely on daily repetition. skipping days disrupts the habit-building process. even if you’re tired or busy, commit to your tiny actions consistently.
lack of trigger or cue: without a clear trigger, it’s easy to forget your microhabit. associate it with an existing routine (e.g., after brushing your teeth) to create a cue.
not celebrating small wins: acknowledge each successful completion. celebrate these small victories to reinforce positive associations with the habit.
changing too many habits simultaneously:  focus on one microhabit at a time. trying to establish multiple habits simultaneously can lead to overwhelm and decreased adherence.
staying motivated to maintain microhabits can be challenging, but here are some strategies to help you stay on track:
visual reminders: place visual cues in your environment. for instance, if you want to drink more water, keep a water bottle on your desk as a reminder.
pair with existing habits: attach your microhabit to an existing routine. for example, if you want to stretch daily, do it right after brushing your teeth in the morning.
track progress: use a habit-tracking app or a simple calendar. mark each day you complete your microhabit. seeing your streak grow can be motivating.
accountability: share your microhabits with a friend or family member. having someone to check in with can boost motivation.
set clear goals: define specific goals for your microhabits. for instance, instead of “exercise more,” set a goal like “walk for 5 minutes daily.”
reflect on benefits: regularly remind yourself why you started. reflect on the positive impact these small actions will have over time.
the best time to start a new microhabit is now! seriously, don't wait for a specific moment. begin with a small action that aligns with your goal, and let consistency work its magic. whether it’s right after waking up, during lunch, or before bed, the key is to start and keep going. 
the time it takes to form a microhabit can vary, but research suggests that consistency over an extended period is crucial. on average, it may take around 66 days for a behaviour to become automatic and habitual. however, individual factors, such as motivation, context, and the complexity of the habit, play a role.
here are some examples of successful microhabits:
drink a glass of water when you wake up
take five deep breaths before starting work
stretch or do yoga for five minutes every morning
clean off the top of your desk before leaving your room
meditate for just five minutes
create a list before grocery shopping
learn something new each day
use affirmations, or visualisation to boost your mindset
