Take a big breath. Fill your lungs. Expand your diaphragm. When you can’t take in any more air, exhale. Push out every last bit of air. Refill your lungs.
You did it.
Your work yesterday (and over the past few months) has been vital. Whether it meant reminding your communities what to expect (and not expect) on Election Day, listening to questions and needs, working as a poll worker, checking in on your colleagues, supporting your newsroom partners, sharing cuteness on Twitter or keeping tabs on barriers to voting - your work was needed.
Consider this a moment to breathe in deep, fully exhale, and be where you are today.
