Things to Do if You Don’t Want to Think About the Election

Happy (hopefully) Election Day!

I know this is a stressful day for a lot of people. We’ve voted, we’ve done everything we can do and now, we wait.

Some of us will wait by keeping our eyes glued to the TV with the news stations playing for the next 24 hours. Some of us will wait by avoiding the stress and going to sleep early tonight. Some of us will wait by periodically taking breaks from the stress and focusing on something else entirely until the winner is announced.

I am in the latter camp and for those who want to take breaks and are looking to focus on something else until the winner is announced, I’ve got some solid suggestions for you.

  • For the New Film Buffs:
    • Inception
      • Okay, hear me out. I know this movie came out a decade ago, but I do believe it was ahead of its time. I remember trying to watch it when I was younger and just being bored and confused. I just didn’t get it back then. HOWEVER, I watched it the other night, and it’s amazing. It’s genius! I think we, as a society, have developed a more intelligent taste in entertainment in the past ten years. So, if you found it a bit confusing the first time you saw it, I highly suggest giving it a second chance.
  • For the Readers:
  • For the Binge Watchers:
    • Selling Sunset
      • I watched all three seasons in two days. It was great. I don’t normally watch reality shows, but the personalities on the show were fascinating. Honestly, if you’re a fan of psychology or sociology, I recommend because it’s really cool to watch everyone interact and form cliques and how different people handle confrontation and react to being called out.

I hope this helps.

Remember to stay aware, but also to look out for your blood pressure levels.
