Local Professor Offers Top SUMMER STRESS-BUSTING Strategies


Keiser University Psychology Professor Robin Schupper, Psy.D.


West Palm Beach, Florida – May 2019 Keiser University psychology professor Dr. Robin Schupper reminds us that although the summer is when we anticipate happy events such as graduation ceremonies, weddings, and sometimes preparing for a move to college, stress can still rear its ugly head.


Her points include:

  • Change of any kind is uncomfortable.  We may not like to be bored, but we are hard-wired as humans to rely on the known, the predictable, and the routine.  When we are moved out of our typical comfort zone, our nervous system goes on alert, whether the push comes from negative or positive sources.
  • The Holmes-Rahe is one of the more widely used stress inventories, and lists marriage as the 7th most stressful life event, with retirement as 10th, pregnancy as 12th, and outstanding personal achievement as 25th.  Graduating or starting school is 27th, and vacation is 41st.
  • With every positive achievement comes the inevitable question: What’s next?  We spend so much time focusing on getting through classes, working toward a promotion, getting to vacation time, and planning weddings and other events that we overlook the unknown of what we are to do afterward, and the potential letdown that occurs when everything we have worked so hard for is over and done.

In order to mitigate summer stress Schupper recommends we:

  • Embrace the “new normal.”  Accept that life is different and that the experience has probably changed us in some positive ways
  • Take time when working toward goals to think about what life might look like afterward, and what we may wish to further achieve.
  • Make a plan for what comes next, but first, take some time to relax and to appreciate what we’ve overcome and how joyous that feels.
