WFU counseling expert: How to deal with post-election stress

Samuel Gladding

Wake Forest University Professor Sam Gladding, who has taught, researched and written about counseling for more than 30 years, offers some tips for dealing with post-election stress – regardless of how you cast your ballot.

  1. Talk and listen to friends and neighbors in a civil manner
  2. Turn down the volume of media (engage selectively)
  3. Have some fun by yourself or with your family
  4. Give to others less fortunate
  5. Practice gratitude by finding some beauty in your life and friends
