Bustle interviews Hall for dealing with isolation

Bustle interviewed Brenda Hall, a University of Maine professor of glacial geology in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences and the Climate Change Institute, about tips for maintaining mental resilience when facing isolation. Hall described her first trip to Antarctica in 1990, when she was 21 years old. “We learned to focus on the present. If you arrive in October and think, ‘Oh my goodness, I’m here for three months,’ you’ll never get through it,” she said.
