Oh bees, I woke up to one of those days…. I need something to lift my spirits! Pandemic, government troubles, awful animal stories, I’m just so SAD. I know I need to stop looking at news. Can someone recommend a funny book or show or something? I’m virtual teaching now and doing my best, but TBH I just want to get in the bed and turn off the light! Sending a virtual hug to any of you feeling like I do today! I guess all this just builds up sometimes…Fiance doesn’t seem to get it.
Do you have AppleTV? We just watched the show Ted Lasso with Jason Sudekis and it was SO GOOD!! Super clever and funny, and heartwarming. Definitely my favorite show of the year. I would buy a month subscription to AppleTV to watch it, no question.
Hugs. I feel you. It’s pretty bleak right now. Things will be better in a week, though ❤️
Aww, sorry you’re having one of those days. It’s completely normal! I woke up like that yesterday.
Take a brisk walk, do stretches, dance around the house. I also watched Brenee Browns special on Netflix and it made me cry a bit a set so many things in perspevrive that I feel so productive and energized today. Highly recommend it.
@floridagirlblue: This show isn’t necessarily funny but it’s quirky and strange and made me smile. How To with John Wilson if you have HBO. It’s a 6 episode documentary of some guy just walking around NYC, hard to explain, just have to watch….
Also, if you haven’t watched Schitt’s Creek (on Netflix) that was one of the most heartwarming feel good shows (also hilarious) I think I have ever watched! It’s so positive and just makes you feel good!
Check out The Dodo if you haven’t already. I think it’s on pretty much all social media platforms- youtube, facebook, twitter, ect. It’s also a website.
It’s filled with tons of positive stories of animal rescues, adoptions, etc of all kinds of animals- there are videos of people helping animals in the wild with good outcomes and tons of videos of adorable animals who are saved and become best friends with their rescuers. Foster successes and stories of animals that make miracle recoveries! There is so much positive content and so many heart-warming stories
It will make you smile and restore your faith in humanity.
Not to mention the cuteness overload! Lol hope you feel better
I HIGHLY recommend “Dead to Me.” My husband and I are hooked.
When I need a random pick me up (and lately I’ve been really leaning on this myself, things are tough), I get on Reddit and look at the r/aww or r/eyebleach subreddits. The cute animals never fail to lift my spirits.
Hugs to you, OP, and everyone else struggling right now. Things will get better. We all just have to keep our chins up.
Alright, I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna recommend Rilakkuma and Kaoru on Netflix.
Yes, it’s a Japanese claymation. Yes, it’s about a woman who lives with 2 stuffed bears and a bird who loves to clean. No, none of the characters actually talk except Kaoru. But I freaking love this show. I’ve watched it maybe 4 times (every episode is 10 min long), it’s been great medicine for when I’m sad or need something comforting.
It goes through a year in a woman’s life and instead of being for kids it handles some adult subjects in a less heavy way. For example, in the first episode Kaoru is excited to see her girlfriends from college and worries that they are all moving on with their lives and becoming too successful and busy for her. There’s also another really cute episode involving her crush and some not so healthy spending. It may seem childish at first glance but I promise you it’s truly worth a watch, and it always makes me feel super happy and cozy.
Totally know how you feel. I have worked from home for 4 years and always loved it, but I have never resented being cooped up in the house more.
We watched Instant Family on the weekend, and it really did the trick to lift the spirits. It’s very funny but also just a fantastic human story about a couple who adopts three siblings.
Also strongly recommend staying away from the news, unless it’s a source that you trust completely. Even then, discipline yourself to check only once or twice a week. That has truly saved my sanity because I don’t think I could bear the overload of information.
