Regardless of the vote that you cast on Election Tuesday (which was two days ago, as of this podcast release), you're likely shaken by the months and months of drama and rhetoric leading up to the day and perhaps deeply surprised by the result. On Episode 75 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, co-hosts Tesi and Leslie discuss Tuesday's election honestly and with great vulnerability in hope of sorting through their own feelings, fears, and pain, all the while encouraging listeners to heal and move through this period with grace and love. Ultimately, they believe that Mama Bear is having her moment. She might be angry. She might be baffled. She might be thrilled or surprised by her own feelings. This podcast encourages all of us — no matter who you voted for — to access their Mama Bear for good.
Seven Suggestions for Post-Election Healing
- Step away from media
- Read a book, listen to music, binge watch Christmas movies, & play family board games
- GIVE (channel your energy into being the change for our nation)
- Nurture relationships that matter
- Take solace in the fact that there is nothing new under the sun
- Share a pot of soup with your neighbor and friend (when you're ready)
- Activate your Mama Bear
