There is no doubt that the 2016 election has provoked a great deal of anxiety. Everywhere. With everyone.
My clients tell me that tension has been growing within families and rattled friendships when there is a difference in support with one candidate or the other. Turmoil has been present in the work place, in neighborhoods and within people’s hearts as they worry about the results of Tuesday’s election and what will happen to our country during the next four years.
Whether people hide their anxiety under the thick shell of anger – or just admit that they are really, really nervous about the outcome of the election, the anxiety has been brewing for months. Now, just a day before Election Day, the anxiety is being served up full strength.
Which brings us to the question: What do we do on Election Day?
People have been thinking about this already, and they aren’t waiting for Nov. 8 to start.
