The American elections are barely five weeks off and the tension is palpable. People are on edge, worried about what lies in store for the United States and the rest of the world after the ballots are counted.
There's even a name for it, "election stress disorder" and several web sites have posted articles on how to cope.
Lots of tips such as avoiding social media, only getting campaign news from credible media, maintain friendships that cross party lines, getting lots of exercise, eating well, lots of orange juice, laugh with friends, turn off your damned phone, more orange juice, ice packs (with or without orange juice), meditation, yoga and, if you can squeeze it in, a lovely glass of orange juice. Not recommended: flooding Government of Canada web sites to see when you can punch out.
HealthJournal even suggests how to cope with PESD, Post Election Stress Disorder, the electoral form of PTSD. Apparently PESD became a thing after Trump took the presidency in 2016.
