It’s a crazy time. Life as we know it has completely changed and continues to change as we navigate this pandemic. I know, in South Africa, at first, we were united against the fight, but as levels were introduced things started getting muddy. You could see your hairdresser…. Online. You are not allowed to buy tobacco products; tax revenue that we really need. The rules just seem to change willy nilly. A lot of them make no sense. I’m left feeling confused. One thing I can say right now is “We are in this together”. All around the world! We all have a common enemy we are fighting and experiencing quarantine, the effects of Covid etc. Isn’t it funny that this disease brought the world together as one. I’m committed to do some motivational and funny posts. So, let’s go!

Let’s Laugh a Little
‘”Humour is a useful tool in helping to cope with cabin fever during a lockdown. Jokes, memes, and funny one-liners engage people remotely and create a sense of social belonging.
Paul Lewis, the author of “Cracking Up: American Humour in a Time of Conflict,” believes that jokes amid the outbreak offer a real shelter. “People usually make jokes about everything, but when news narrows down and has this element of fear, jokes are a way of temporarily triumphing over and repressing it.”
Laughing is and always will be, the form of therapy.
Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain.Charlie Chaplin
