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.”
