How You Can Find the Good in a Nasty Election Cycle

How You Can Find the Good in a Nasty Election Cycle | Tools You Can Use | Scoop.it

You can turn election stress into courage and compassion, says Kelly McGonigal. Here's how.


More than anything else, this election is eroding social trust. Most commentaries treat election stress like ordinary, everyday stress. But let’s be clear: The stress we’re feeling about this election can have profound effects on our individual and collective well-being.


Moral distress is no ordinary stress, and preserving social trust requires more than just taking a bath, watching comedies, or even meditating. Rather than turn to the usual stress-reduction strategies of distraction and self-soothing, it’s important to recognize what makes this election’s stress so toxic—and what we can do to turn that poison into good medicine. For ourselves, and for others.


This requires more than mindfulness. It calls for heartfulness—the courage to stay engaged, with an open heart and a determination to hold onto your faith in what connects us. In this spirit, I offer three strategies for transforming moral distress into moral courage, moral elevation, and compassion.
