These 8 works of art are soothing our post-election souls

Here at HG, we believe so strongly in the power of self-care. That rings especially true today, when you might be dealing with a lot of post-election emotions. Fortunately, there are many paths you can take in the name of self-care after the election. Reaching out to friends and family, to remind them you are here for them, is just one of them. We are also living in a very connected age, and social media can help ease some of the anxiety as you work to find support in your communities, both IRL and online.
