100 Words: On Five Ways to Cope With the Trump Tsunami

It has been a fast paced few days since Trump took office. Many feel an unease unparalleled in our lives.

More people are posting about stress, depression, and/or anxiety.

So how do we cope? Here are a few ideas:

1) Don’t OD on News- hours of watching changes nothing.

2) Choose your issues- focusing on one or two is more efficient

3) Call your legislators, often- it makes a bigger impact than email

4) Pursue other passions- geek out on what you love; it helps balance you

5) eat, sleep, move- your health is your first defense

Above all, remember you are not alone.
