It's never a bad time to go over the basics. You've probably come across the ThinkWell team of Maria Gardiner and Hugh Kearns, either at your orientation or one of their regular FGR workshops (they'll be back later in the year, if you haven't signed up this month).

Maria and Hugh are world experts in cognitive behavioural coaching, with over fifteen years' experience of working with students and supervisors. In layman's terms, this means they have the knack of reminding you of your own abilities and reigniting productivity - even on the more difficult days!

But ThinkWell's goodness doesn't end when they get back on the plane to Australia. The ThinkWell website contains a wealth of information and resources, including books (put your wallets away - they're in the university library) and free downloadable organisational guides and planners. Get your whole thesis plan on your office wall - you'll feel much better for it! You can also see the headlines of all the ThinkWell workshops, which is enough to remind your brain of all the positive things you learned last time Hugh or Maria were in town.

Have a scroll through ThinkWell next time your motivation sags - it's much better procrastination than Instagram!
