Faculty note: Prof. Regan Gurung advises students to ‘plan your crazy’

UW-Green Bay Ben & Joyce Rosenberg Professor Regan Gurung (Psychology & Human Development) advises students to “plan their crazy” as the start of new academic year approaches. In his article “All work and no play? Tips for the new school year” Gurung explains that few people are good at planning and many people do not plan at all. He says that the most remorseful students are juniors and seniors who were “out of control” their freshman year. Gurung therefore advises students to plan their fun, because if fun is not planned, it happens anyway and is a distraction. Read the article published in Psychology Today.
