4 Your Health: New survey reveals election is a significant source of stress

NBC- Does the upcoming presidential election leave you feeling stressed?

A new survey shows that if it does, you are not alone.

More than 3,400 adults were polled in August.

The survey revealed 68% said the election was a significant source of stress in their life.

That is an increase from 2016, when 52% said the same about that election.

Blacks and those with a chronic condition are more likely to report stress about the election.

Experts say if you are feeling anxious, try to focus on things you can control, stay connected with friends and family and stay active.
