25 Things to do Instead of Stressing Out About the US Presidential Election

  1. Bake cookies
  2. Bake bread
  3. Bake a cake
  4. Basically just bake something that takes a bunch of time and focus and makes your house smell good, so that when you comfort eat it later it will have taken up hours to create…and consumed your attention for a while.
  5. Organize your kitchen junk drawer
  6. Get out the sewing machine and turn those old sheets into a cool new duvet cover
  7. Crochet a hat
  8. Crochet a mask (be sure to line it with a real mask, or 7 layers of carbon or whatever they’re recommending these days… because crocheting has holes!)
  9. Paint a picture of something happy
  10. Better yet, watch old videos of Bob Ross and paint happy little trees and clouds along with his soothing voice. Then follow that with a nap (I always do!)
