Election Day can be an anxious time for many people regardless of their political affiliation. Emotions ride high during this time and can leave us exhausted when it’s over.
In fact, many Americans are burned out by politics. Every year the American Psychological Association conducts a survey to study stress across America. Findings were published just last week and not at all surprising. Sixty-two percent of Americans reported that the current political climate is a significant source of concern and a whopping 69 percent said that the future of the nation causes them stress.
Between pervasive social media and relentless, often negative TV ads, it’s easy to be affected around voting time. Common emotional and physical symptoms of stress to look out for include:
• Difficulty relaxing
• Low energy and fatigue
• Racing thoughts
• Gastrointestinal upset, including diarrhea and nausea
• Headaches, jaw pain, and tension
• Difficulty sleeping
