Does this really qualify as a “health tip?” Absolutely! As I mentioned last week, so many of us are overcome with worry. While I tried to communicate that worrying doesn’t really accomplish anything, taking action does! In a world where we can sometimes feel out of control, taking tangible action – like casting your vote – can provide some semblance of, well, control.
In addition to paying attention to the federal election, I encourage you to learn about the candidates running for local office. It is these people who can most impact your life. Your local tax policy, your schools, your streets – your local elected officials control all of these things. Educate yourself, and then vote!
Personally, I vote in honor of my grandparents who came to this country in the early 20th century in search of a better life. I also think of those around the world who don’t have this basic right. The fact that we get to participate in our democratic process is something that I do not take for granted.
Thank you, in advance, friends! If you can, share some pictures and voting stories with me. I love hearing from you!
Sending you love and health.
