The US election was stressful. A company said it caused stress in 49% of people. Only COVID-19 was more stressful. Around 55% of adults said November the 3rd was the most stressful day of this year. They wanted 2020 to be over. A woman said: "It's not just the election - this year has been a marathon of stress."

Months of non-stop news made people stressed. They baked cakes and bread to feel better, especially before the election. About 27% of people baked to help their stress, but 41% put on weight. One woman said baking lowered her election stress. She said: "We probably won't have a clear winner for weeks after election day."
