How to Survive the Next 42 Months

Feeling worn out already? It’s only been six months. We’ve got to make it through this appalling, reckless presidency, so here are my recommendations.

1.    Use the Goldilocks method for how much news you watch. Not too much (every waking hour) not too little (none), just right (varies by person). And remember the President is never on HGTV.

2.    Fight for our rights. The bad news, we have to fight again. The good news, we already have talking points, signs, handouts, etc.

3.    Keep your sanity by laughing. Warning: events are so ridiculous you may get carried away, but don’t worry, they won’t be able to Baker Act you when there is no mental health care.

4.    Sign some petitions and call your representatives. Taking positive action like this gives you hope. Get others to sign petitions and visit you representatives for a double dose. But the best way is replace your representatives by running for office yourself.

5.   Avoid talking about what’s going on with Trump voters unless you enjoy pain. If that’s the case, why are you reading this? Go swim with the gators.

6.   Donate to progressive candidates and organizations. Think of it as investing in a happier future. Besides, you might as well spend your dollars while they’re worth something.

7.   Go to a March, meet like minded people and hey, a little exercise might get those endorphins working.

8.   Drink a lot of water. It keeps you from yelling at the TV cause your mouth is full. Anyway, you’ll want a strong memory of what water tasted like when it was clean.

9.   Use birth control and practice safe sex. Losing Planned Parenthood means no abortion or STD treatment access. Enough said.

10.  Speak out. Write a letter to the editor. Join Facebook, Twitter, or a group where you can share. Keeping all that angst bottled up isn’t good for your health and neither is our president.

 In Sisterhood,

Elaine Togneri
