In 2016, I created this post on what to do while waiting for election results. Today’s the day many of us have been waiting for since that dark night and I woke up with a cocktail of anxiety, energy, and excitement.

Tonight will be long and while hitting refresh over and over is an option, I wanted to offer a few alternatives to combat the anxious energy.

  1. Walk your dog
  2. Write a love letter to Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, Ida B. Wells, Frances E.W. Harper, and/or Mary Church Terrell

  4. Soak in a lavender-infused bubble bath
  5. Organize a desk drawer
