Things To Do While You Wait For The 2020 U.S. Election Result


It is fair to say that if you are a Biden or Trump supporter, you are probably approaching the election with a sense of trepidation, hope, and fear. If the ‘other’ guy wins, it is unthinkable on so many levels.  From building controversial walls between America and Mexico, to offhand remarks about the quality of countries, it is never a dull moment with Trump. Now, Biden, a new DNC challenger is trying to become the leader of the free world. Nothing is off the table in terms of what can be used as a political weapon for one side to bash the other.

If you’re planning to watch every debate and follow every item of news, then your next few weeks are planned out for you. If, on the other hand, you know who you’re voting for and have no interest in following debates and discussions, what to do? Here are a few ideas to keep you occupied while the election build-up plays out.

Learn a New Hobby or Skill

There are plenty of options for you to learn a new skill or hobby. This is the perfect time to do so as TV and social media are flooded with election news. Consider:

  • Working towards an online qualification or developing a new skill – This is the perfect time to bury yourself in books and study material. If you have ever wanted to learn carpentry or a language, take the plunge. Not only will you keep busy but you’ll feel good from learning something new.
  • Learn to play an instrument – Ever wanted to play the guitar like Jimi Hendrix or piano like Elton John? Now is the time to get practising.
  • Get fit – If you have a fitness hobby, why not take it to the next level and possibly invest in new equipment.

Online Casinos

Playing online casino is always great fun. They demand focus, which is perfect if you want to avoid the debates, ads, and political commentary, which often has nothing of relevance to say. Also, many casinos offer good sign-up bonuses which is always a nice incentive to play.

Take a Vacation

Although Covid-19 ravages the world, there are still places you can go to get away. Consider heading south or if you can, across the sea to Europe. You can broaden your horizons and explore new places. Given the year we’ve had, getting away from it all is very relaxing.

If you can’t get abroad, find a place fairly remote. You can explore going for long walks enjoying the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings. You will probably find good restaurants and bars, which is perfect for keeping your mind focused on enjoying life.

Binge T.V. Box Sets

There are literally days worth of box sets that can be consumed. In theory, you could watch thousands of hours of shows that are on Netflix alone. You can always switch to Amazon Prime once you’re through Netflix. By the time you have watched everything the election will be over and things will be more stable.

This election is both important but life has to continue on. Hopefully, these ideas will help you carry on until the results are in.
