Doing Research or writing thesis can be intense and time-consuming but should not take over your life and end up burnout. Organise calendar time with family and friends, go out for dance or sporting events, and relaxing time at the spa. Do not sacrifice what you love doing over your thesis.
Think about integrating what matters the most that into your life while writing your thesis. Burnout never gets a dissertation done. Just get it done, but do it with fun, family and friends. After all, thesis is not more important than family even though it might be important to your family’s future.
