“The Critical Role of Self-Care for Handling Post-Election Stress:…Get Out of Your Head…Get Off Social Media…Listen, Actually Listen.”


I’ve experienced many elections, but had never seen an article on dealing with post-election stress.


So when your Republican friends express happiness on Facebook, listen. When your Democratic friends express anguish, listen. When your black friends express frustration over the shock among white Democrats at the pervasiveness of racism and sexism of America, listen. When your white friends express guilt, listen. When your immigrant friends express fear for what Trump’s America means for them, listen. When your women friends express terror at what this might mean for their bodies, listen. Or when they express joy that a woman they thought didn’t represent them lost, listen. When your male friends express sadness that the sexism of some does not represent them, listen. When children express worry, listen.
