The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on our lives and caused immense stress. We’ve been living in this state for nearly a year. When it first hit, we banded together and there was a sense of community. But after prolonged stress, COVID-19 fatigue may be setting in.
We’re tired of being uncertain, tired of being careful, tired of being isolated, and tired of being scared. We’re worn out dealing with the pandemic, some of us more than others.
Recently, the FDA granted emergency use authorization for two COVID-19 vaccines. This gives us hope for an end to the pandemic. But the vaccine isn’t available to the general public just yet — it will go to those at highest risk first, like frontline healthcare workers and long-term care residents. It’s estimated the general public will be able to start receiving the vaccine in spring/summer 2021.
How can we cope until we are able to receive the vaccine? Try these tips to help boost your overall well-being as you wait:
