‘Election Stress Disorder’ Is a Thing

Coping During Unprecedented Times


More than two-thirds of U.S. adults say that the 2020 election is a significant source of stress in their lives – regardless of affiliation. The poll from the American Psychological Association shows that uncertainty doesn’t discriminate when taking a physical and emotional toll on our wellbeing.

“Election Stress Disorder” – while not a medical diagnosis – is what emotional health experts have dubbed the intense stress people experience around an election. This added level of stress can impact your sleep, focus, mood, and relationships.

Sometimes, the solution towards your self-care is as simple as placing it in the hands of an experienced professional. Our healthcare experts are well-versed in proven stress and anxiety relief – including acupuncture, massage, nutrition, and physical medicine.

We encourage you to take extra care of your emotional health over the next 20 days. Focus on what you can control. Give yourself permission to take a break from the news. Engage in activities that are meaningful for you. And stay active!

Be Proactive: we invite you to join our acupuncture team, next Wednesday, October 21st, for a free webinar on stress relief. We will explore different breathing methods and meditation techniques to help your brain calm down and relax. Register >>
