Brace yourselves, friends. It’s election season. 

We’re officially in the full-swing of election season, and most of us are FEELING IT. The gluttony of information, constant negativity, divisive content, and the importance of the outcomes has us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or even checked-out. 

There are a lot of blog posts and podcast episodes focused on the different mental biases that come into play during the political season. This is all important content, but it is not what we’ll be reviewing today. 

Instead, today’s episode is focused on ways you can lean on your psychological strength to thrive through this season. To avoid some of the anxiety and worry that can arise. To feel more balanced and centered during a time that threatens to upend even the strongest of us. 

We’ll begin the episode by talking about some key reasons why you might be feeling out-of-sorts during this time. We’ll cover our mind’s tendency to focus on topics in a black and white fashion, our tendency to focus on negative information, our bias toward creating ingroups (us) and outgroups (them) and our illusion of control. 

All of these tendencies are very natural and normal occurrences, but they make our experience during election season particularly difficult. 

Toward the end of this episode, we’ll turn to things you can do to support yourself through the coming weeks. This information is particularly important for those of you who might find yourself in an advocate or activist position. If you are fighting for something important to you, you need to take care of yourself in the process. We’d love to arm you with some tips. 

Friends, take care of yourself in the coming weeks.
