Amid the tension of these last weeks of the presidential race, try these tips to stay sane from Tom Plante, psychology professor and director of the Spirituality & Health Institute at Santa Clara University. • Be selective with taking in news reports. Yes, it’s hard, but you don’t need to follow every detail and report. • Talk openly with supportive others about these stress-related concerns. • Engage in activities and topics that are productively distracting, healthy and good for your body, mind, and soul. • Try to be forgiving and respectful. Don’t try to change the views of others, but rather try to treat others as you wish to be treated, with respect and compassion. Then try to talk about your commonalities. • And remember — it will all be over soon.
