US election results got you stressed? Freaking out over the first 100 days? Arguing with family members? Consider modifying your "one truth reality" or "one dimensional thinking" (your way is the only way) to include the possibility of other truths, other realities, other ways of thinking that are just as valid as your own.
Reduce stress and conflict by being more inclusive and understanding of other belief systems. No matter how irritating, stupid, hurtful, or bigoted they may seem to you, they are just as righteously held as your own. Escalation of conflict can only be avoided by negotiating compromise which can only begin through acceptance.
Reducing your energy input will help you be more accepting. Have a few beers, a glass of wine, or a hot fudge sundae, and open up and relax.
