Hybrid Pedagogy’s Jesse Stommel and our very own Charlotte Frost rethink academic life and writing productivity in this on-going series of hints, tips and hacks.

GO SHOPPING. For some people, buying clothes is a powerful way to de-stress and release endorphins. That’s great, but not true for everyone. For some, buying clothes is stressful. But here’s the problem, you’re going to need some clothes and, in fact, if you’re going to be a success, you’re probably going to need some new clothes. There are two main times academics need to look smart, one is at conferences and the other is at job interviews. What we’re suggesting here is that you buy these sorts of clothes well in advance of either of these events and have them ready and waiting. When you’re writing your job talk for your campus interview the last thing you need is to have to rush around finding a couple of suitable outfits. But if you go out shopping with a clear head – and perhaps a good friend – it can be one less thing to think about when you should be writing. Perhaps you should  go shopping with your team ?
