LATEST POLL: Election Stress and Older Americans

"People are so stressed by this election that the American Psychological Association has coping tips."  ~The Washington Post

Editor's Note: Yes, "election stress" is a thing, and, according to a poll by the American Psychological Association, an average of 52% of Republicans and Democrats  feel stress from the election campaigns. Social media users have more anxiety because of  constant media exposure. But, older Americans are especially feeling the stress of this election possibly because many issues that are particularly important to them aren't as discussed  - health insurance, medicare, prescription costs, social security, retirement.

The APA outlined a few more ways to manage the stress of this election. And, if none of the below helps you cope, just keep reminding yourself, it's almost over.
• If the 24-hour news cycle of claims and counterclaims from the candidates is causing you stress, limit your media consumption. Read just enough to stay informed. Turn off the news feed or take a digital break. Take some time for yourself, go for a walk, or spend time with friends and family doing things that you enjoy.
