Donald Trump winning the election on Tuesday, Nov. 8 was shocking, stressful, and pretty heartbreaking TBH. And the entire 2016 election season was stressful AF too: it was filled with negativity, insults, scandal, and perhaps an eye-opener that our country really is more divided than we may have previously thought. While you're certainly valid in crying over the election results, it's also important to remember there are ways to cope with this stress, treat yourself, and stand up for the issues that are important to you. You don't have to feel devastated over this. It's important to not lose all hope, and as Hillary Clinton said in her powerful concession speech on Wednesday, it's important to keep up the fight and know that it's worth it. 

One way to regain the faith you may of lost last night? Reflecting on President Barack Obama's eight years in the White House and using it as inspiration to keep your head up. “To the young people who got into politics for the first time and may be disappointed by the results, I just want you to know, you have to stay encouraged," President Obama said in his speech on Wednesday, Nov. 9. "Don't get cynical, don't ever think you can't make a difference. As Secretary Clinton said this morning, fighting for what is right is worth it.”
