I hope and pray that you and your family and friends are safe and doing well as we all cooperatively do our parts to rid the world of this terrible CV-19 Pandemic
So many people have become infected, are critically ill or have unfortunately died from this virus! My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all these innocent people, so sad and seems so surreal.
Although others at least to this date might not have yet become “infected” by this virus, we are ALL in some way or another AFFECTED by this pandemic and are trying to cope and to cooperate with helping to stop the growing spread of this disease by practicing social distancing, going on lockdown mode or self-quaranting oneself if having knowingly been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.
In trying to cope with all this, it certainly leads to a lot of anxiety and stress because it has drastically affected our current way of living and has affected our job security (in many cases) and has had a profound negative impact on our hard earned retirement savings (to include me!)
Yes…through all this, it has resulted in a lot of temporary inconveniences in our lives such as reduced hours and store closures, long lines, select items on shelves being temporarily out of stock (like toilet paper, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, etc), many restaurants being closed, on reduced ours or only having take out orders available and of course little to no on site social events or interactions with others. (Luckily..some groups have recently been finding innovative ways to have virtual social gatherings thru communication modes such as Zoom, etc).which helps a bit, but it’s still not the same as direct on site personal interaction.
Having said all this… sadness, anxiety, depression and dealing with all these temporaryv inconveniences have definitely added to our stress levels! I will be the first to admit.. it has definitely gotten to me (futher further complicated because of other mobility restructions for me right now because of my recent surgery).
In light of all this…sometimes we just need a little stress release and laughter in our lives, if only for a brief moment.
A friend on mine recently sent me these two attached you tube videos to me and I will admit. .they really helped to give me a moment of laughter and stress relief! This confirms the accuracy of my blog title that “Laughter Can Be The Best Medicine” especially at a time like this! Hoped these videos give you a moment of laughter and stress relief and help to start out your dayvon a brighter and more positive way!
Pleae my friends..thru all this..remain cautious, practce social responsibility to minimize direct exposure to others and please stay safe.
I wish you and your families all the best and hope you remain well.
