work stress 

@oliviodare
Unsolicited advice (or maybe the void screaming back), but, for what it's worth: humans cannot possibly read everything relevant to their field of study, even if it is quite specialized (maybe except on minuscule fields?).

As you accurately state, coffee won't help when there's too many other humans working on this. And yet, PhDs need to get done.[citation needed]

So... just accept you will do the PhD without reading it all?

Also: ¡ánimo, salud y cuidados!
