Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - FIFTY PLUS -

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.
