Today is Election Day… and it is a day full of emotion and feeling and worries.

Give yourself the permission to feel whatever you want to feel today and for the days ahead.

You don’t have to please everyone

You don’t have to talk about your feelings

You are allowed to take a break, to step away and to put yourself first

Recognize that what you are feeling is normal, and that others will most likely be feeling the same and maybe handling things differently. Take time to just disconnect.

Give yourself the permission to reward yourself, practice self care, to rebuild yourself. There is no shame in feeling anxious, broken or defeated. Just know that this does not have to be your “forever” it is simply what you are feeling right now.

Look for things to ground yourself.

5 things you can see

4 things you can touch

3 things you can hear

2 things you can smell

1 thing you can taste

By doing this you are centering your brain and grounding your body which gives yourself time to regroup internally.
