Election Anxiety Is Real

I truly never knew election anxiety was real until this election.

Election Anxiety Is Real

I never really believed in Election anxiety. But maybe thats because I never had an election where so much was at loss. This election I know exactly what election anxiety is and I hate it. There is no question that this election brings a lot of uncertainty to many people especially people of color, women, and the LGBTQ communities. We are all stressed and not sure how to handle this all. So many people are just refreshing our phones and laptops anxiously waiting for the results. With this time of uncertainty also brings feelings of anxiety for many people, myself included. I am confused as to what is going to happen and honestly the numbers are pretty close.

But I encourage all of you to be with your loved one (if you can) and to worry about yourself. This anxiety is valid and do not feel stupid for feeling it. If social media is what is causing it maybe take a cleanse for the next few days. I deleted my Facebook for the time being as I was tired of seeing all the negativity. Go for a walk and clear your head. Journal about this time if you want. That might be interesting to look back on how you are feeling during this important time. Maybe learn to cook something new. Or get your favorite take out place and watch a movie. Do anything to ease your worries and anxiety. Spend time with your friends and pets. Just do things you love and that make you happy right now.

And make sure to check up on your friends who are nervous too. This time is crazy for so many people. And please remember to stay kind to one another. We will get through this no matter who our President is.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
