the MIT guide to burnout and recovery

http://web.mit.edu/afs/athena.mit.edu/user/w/c/wchuang/News/college/MIT-views.html

1. STOP DENYING. Listen to the wisdom of your body. Begin to freely admit the stresses and pressures which have manifested physically, mentally, or emotionally.
* MIT VIEW: Work until the physical pain forces you into unconsciousness.

This is my favorite.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY. Don't skip meals, abuse yourself with rigid diets, disregard your need for sleep, or break the doctor appointments. Take care of yourself nutritionally.

* MIT VIEW: Your body serves your mind, your mind serves the Institute. Push the mind and the body will follow. Drink Mountain Dew.

It was the way I felt during Uni, something about spending hours in front of computers (or was it Solaris) makes just give up on your health.

Definitely Solaris. All *nix is like a magic text adventure that mystically has impact on the real world.

I would tell you you're not allowed to go to MIT, but I suspect you'd take one look at my universityful of headcases and laugh and laugh and laugh...
