DEBRIEF: How to deal with anxiety, stress of Election Day (podcast)

Has Election Day or this election cycle brought added stress into your life? If it has you’re not alone.

The American Psychological Association recently found that more than two-thirds of U.S. adults – 68% – say the 2020 presidential election is a significant source of stress in their life.


MVP Health Care Behavioral Health Medical Director Dr. Dawn Gonsalves says that this year has definitely brought on more stress – whether it be due to the pandemic, economic worries, or outright election stress.

There are ways to manage that stress, though, which is important given that results will likely not come as quickly as some may have hoped. Another reason for strong coping skills is that seasonal stress or anxiety – brought on by the holidays or winter – could intersect in the coming weeks with election stress.
