Hi! I am currently extracting lipids from fish tissues. Lab days for me are ~9hours and I am in the lab All. The. Time. I’m also into fitness and trail running, and realized I needed to take better care of my body on these long lab days, not only to feel better but to give me energy for workouts and weekend long runs. I’ve developed some lab tricks that extend beyond your typical “get a good night’s sleep” and “wear appropriate clothing”. Lab can be lonely and exhausting, so I thought I’d share what has helped me out to fellow lab rats (some of these tips can extend beyond the lab!). This list is not exhaustive and if anyone has suggestions to add please contact me!
Want to share some lab tricks and tips that have worked for you? Contact me or comment to share and have them be added to the list!
