PhD students sometimes think they can’t say ‘No’.

Even when they don’t understand the task.

Even when they don’t have the needed resources.

Even when it is beyond the scope of their work.

Even when it is damaging their physical and mental health.

But you can say ‘No’.

Sometimes you SHOULD say ‘No’.

Keep your boundaries. Your physical and mental health will benefit from that.
