Different working patterns work for different people. You need to find the balance that’s right for you while writing your dissertation. It’s a good idea to make sure you are:

  • Working in a study space that is well-laid out.

  • Being honest with yourself and the people around you about how you are getting on.

  • Working and referring to a clear plan for the overall project (with extra time included for anything unforeseen that may pop up).

  • Eating well, and keeping your alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and sugar intakes under control.

  • Getting sufficient sleep and exercise.

  • Balancing your work sensibly, seeing friends and having reasonable relaxation breaks.
