Advice of the Day:
Stay off social media Tuesday

If you are seeking a reduction in political stress, and avoiding continuing political issues during the very day Americans traditionally seek to resolve political issues--Election Day (tomorrow)--resolve to stay away from the unregulated social media. Their free-for-all attitude that anyone with an oddball idea is welcome to develop a conspiracy theory and publish it on their forums, tantamount to adopting a stress-filled life.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, et. al., are good for keeping in touch with family and friends, but not as a source of reliable and accurate news. When it's a matter of life and death, depend only on occasional doses from the long-established news mediums. If you can maintain a safe stress level, compare mediums and stories whenever you hear something that seems too easy or partially ridiculous. 

Watch a delightful, old movie in the evening of Election Day and be prepared for the possibility that we might not know the results for days or weeks. However long it takes, it won't be as long as our fore bearers had to put up with, before the days of wired telegraph, wired telephone, and today's instant media. Relax, life is short.
