A hopeful reminder for this stage of the pandemic

💉 Today’s tip: Start a “vaccinated” list.

Yes, the vaccine rollout has been slow and messy and frustrating in a hundred different ways. But it’s happening, and keeping track of how it’s happening in your own life is one way to feel like we’re making real progress in ending the pandemic. The therapist Kathleen Smith recently tweeted a great idea: “I started a list on the fridge of family and friends who’ve been vaccinated, and it feels so great every time I get to add somebody.”

Keep your own list, and whenever things start to feel overwhelming again, re-read those names for a dose of hope. People you love are safer than they were just months ago. The end is in sight.
