Stress doesn't take a summer vacation

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Most people connect summer with beaches and vacations but a recent study said a third of Americans find summer to be the most stressful season of the year.

In a recent survey conducted by SleepRate, most Americans said they deal with busier social lives, the stress of planning trips and new schedules.The number one reason for summertime stress is a lack of sleep. Region 8 News asked people in downtown Jonesboro what they think is most stressful about summer. 

“I work at Southern Eye Associates so any kind of scheduling that you would have there, you tend to get a little more no shows, kids off in the summer they don’t really want to come to the eye doctor," said Kamri Herndon.

Stressors are also sneaking into family vacations and summertime activities. Kori Garner is the co-owner of Gyros food truck and said the hot weather is the most stressful part of her job.

“One of our stresses is definitely dealing with the heat, we have to stay really hydrated especially with the grills on in there, it gets very hot, well above like 150," she said. 

There are ways to get a better handle on summertime stress. Experts suggest: a change of scenery, finding activities that put you in a happy mood, work on the tough stuff first and stop multitasking
