How journalists can take care of themselves after the election

Now that the election is over, it’s time for journalists to “de-campaign,” Melody Kramer writes. Kramer talks to psychiatrist Jill Shannahan about how to recover from the election and move away from around-the-clock election coverage. Among Shannahan’s advice: Be around people you like, do what feels good to you, take part in intelligent conversations about topics outside of your beat, talk about what it was like to cover the campaign with someone who’s not a journalist, and recognize that it might take some time to recover.
