Feeling Better After The Election?

So, now that the election is over, are you feeling better? If not, rest assured you’re not alone. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), the vast majority of Americans did anything but breathe a big sigh of relief.

The APS raised a red flag, reporting that “Just 17% of Americans say their level of stress has decreased since Election Day, while more than a quarter (27%) say their stress has increased, according to a new survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of the American Psychological Association.

“When asked about specific stressors, a majority of Americans report the future of the nation, the coronavirus pandemic, the current political climate, and the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election as significant sources of stress in their lives — highlighting the compounding stressors Americans continue to grapple with in 2020.”
