How To Cope With Your Candidate Losing The Election
This election has been ... emotional. So here's some sound advice about moving on if the results didn't go your way.By Steven Sparkman | November 9, 2016
This presidential election has been a particularly emotional one, and maybe you're having a hard time coping with the fact that your candidate lost. If that's the case, here's some psychologically sound advice to help you move on.
First, you don't want to dwell on things, so it's a good idea to distract yourself for a while. The election result is all anyone is going to be talking about on the news or social media, so it's probably best to avoid those (though watching a few Newsy videos wouldn't hurt). Spend time on your hobbies, or better yet, do something for others, like donating blood or volunteering.
Next, get some exercise, which improves mood and reduces stress. Anything from a walk in the park to going all Rocky Balboa on a heavy bag will do.
