Neuropsychologist Sanam Hafeez stopped by CNN’s New Day on Friday morning to offer some tips on shaking the post-election depression and malaise that many Americans are experiencing.
Hafeez said that people struggling to cope with the possibility of a President Donald Trump can take certain steps to lessen their anxiety.
1. Recognize that you can’t change the outcome, only your reaction
2. Distance yourself from social media
3. Go about your normal day
4. Avoid hostile interactions with friends and family
5. Take action in your community
“If you feel bad, we feel better if we’re actually doing something,” said Hafeez. “So stop talking, get out and do something, even if it’s small, even if it’s just in your neighborhood.”
“Get out and do something,” she reiterated. “Let your voice be heard.”

Longtime GOP strategist explains why his party is getting crushed in the war of ideas
Republican strategist Stuart Stevens on Wednesday warned the GOP that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might not be a pushover candidate against President Donald Trump in 2020.
Writing on Twitter, Stevens admitted that he had "no idea" if Warren would beat Trump next year, but he did say that "Trump and supporters are destroying [the] credibility of any center-right argument" thanks to Trump's "corrupt and unstable" governance.
When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.

"It is not true that we have decided on the disposal method," Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada's comments earlier in the day.
The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
Here’s one big reason why Trump is having a white-hot meltdown over the Fed not dropping interest rates
