Red Lips and Academics talks about how she has viewed academia, how it impacted her life, and how she has changed her life.

Yes, often we have fifteen hour days and students text us all weekend. But we need to be involved in life outside of our careers (even if that means scaling back those careers).
We–and here I mean I–I should not be spending all my time working. I have a great job, but I also have a great husband and two sons and a body that needs to be taken care of. If I neglect my body, saying I don’t have time because of work, my work will eventually suffer.
Have a good day. I am going out to walk the dog a couple of miles.
