Online Self-Care Communities for Academics

I create spaces for discussion and community. To add self-care and fun to my life, and to others with difficult, busy lives. Below are the most active Facebook groups I currently run. For my full list of communities, check out the Groups tab on my YWJ: Self-Care page.

The Yana Boutique - VIP

Your personalized shopping experience in a warm, private group. I currently only ship to the US, but those outside the US are welcome to join and participate in the community.


Academics say NO

A place for academics to log requests and "opportunities" that they have turned down in order to STAY SANE.

Yana’s Self-Care Academy

This started as a make-up group, but naturally expanded to cover related questions such as fashion, hair, skin-care, and other self-care.


Academics say GOODBYE

A private group for academics thinking about re-joining the "real world". Those who have already done so are encouraged to join and share their wisdom.
