60 Funny Coronavirus Memes To Help You Stop Panicking Over This Worldwide Pandemic

You better be washing those hands!

As cases of the coronavirus — aka COVID-19 — have surfaced worldwide and governments around the world are taking steps to prevent (or at least limit) the spread of the virus, the best thing you can do is to ensure that you take you to care of your body and hygiene by washing your hands properly. If you cannot get to a bathroom or sink, keep hand sanitizer near you like you would your wallet. That is, if you can find any hand sanitizer (this, along with hundreds of other household items are inconveniently sold out in stores all across the nation as people panic and grab more than they need. Naturally.)

There have been many people questioning the symptoms of this infection and the severity of it. According to the cdc.gov, “common virus that causes an infection in your nose, sinuses, or upper throat”. But in some cases, symptoms of the coronavirus can become severe in some immunocompromised patients and can lead to pneumonia, breathing difficulties … and even death.

The effects of this pandemic have reached all points of the globe, and at this point, businesses, schools and large events across the country are canceling and postponing their activities indefinitely until further notice. Huge sports organizations such as the NBA and MLB have followed suit.

People would normally be ecstatic about having the opportunity to take time off from work or school to spend time with their families, but things are looking more and more serious by the minute, with the government urging us to stay in our homes, avoid large crowds, and generally self-quarantine to be safe from the spread of the illness. When we start to think about the children who look forward to eating school breakfast and lunch during school come the end of Spring break, we begin to hope that we find a cure for COVID-19 sooner, rather than later.

Also with the thought about traveling, now we’re talking about how risking infection to experience life and planned vacations can be sad and overwhelming.

Social media has mixed emotions regarding the outbreak. There are funny memes and videos that make you laugh so you won’t think about the severity of this outbreak, and others that make you think twice about opening your doors or going to your office — or even shopping at your local grocery store.

Bible Verses For Lonely Singles Who Are Tired Of Social Distancing

Think of it as a prolonged me-time.

Social distancing is hard for everyone, and if you’re single it can be lonely at times.

Spending time alone is not always a bad thing, but when you’ve been away from your friends for weeks at a time, you start to feel the impact more.

A part of you may think that if you had someone social distancing would be easier than it feels right now, and you wouldn’t be so tired by loneliness.

At least then, you’d be tired of being home with someone (perhaps) than having no option at all.

It can appear that someone who is in a relationship, living with family members or single at home with kids, has an easier time being distant from others because they have people there to help fight against loneliness.

When you’re single, and if you live alone, you do not have that option.

Social distancing can mean weeks before you get a hug or hang out with a friend, see the mom or dad you don’t live with in-person, with the element of human touch included.

Now at the moment, I’m not single but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to tell you to enjoy this time.

Also, I’m not going to tell you that you won’t find love again, cause whether you’ve never been in a relationship, or you’re a newly single, we all run our course on the single life.

You really need to not take this time for granted, especially because you don’t want to have to miss it.

When you meet the right person it could make you never want to go back, cause being with them is better than being alone.

I will say my first experience with the single like most of us was when I was younger, but I personally feel you really appreciate it when you’re fresh out of a relationship.

That’s when you involve yourself in the world of dating and start realizing how dry your phone actually is.

Now I get that you’re possibly going through a tough time right now being single and don’t feel the best with your current situation.

I don’t want to push the, “You’ll meet someone” button because you will but right now you need to be happy on your own and find out what’s really lowering your spirits at the moment.

So overall being single is …

Need A Sick Day? 33 Sick Quotes For When You’re Not Feeling Well & Ready To Call Out Of Work

Use these quotes about being sick to help you cope while you’re under the weather.

We have all been there — sometimes you just don’t feel well enough to come to work. Whether we have a slight cough or food poisoning from that one fast food joint, we all have times when we just need a day off. That’s the beauty of taking a sick day.

Although, many of us are all guilty of not coming in when we know our jobs need us — regardless if we are really sick or not. According to careerbuilder.com, “40 percent of workers have called in sick in the last 12 months when they weren’t, compared to 35 percent in 2016”. Even if you need to have a mental health day, it can actually help your work performance and attitude when you do return. I mean, after all, we do want to keep our jobs, so think of taking the day off when you are not feeling well as an opportunity to regroup so you can bounce back and be even better at your job in the long run.

Sharing spaces within the workplace can cause people to really get sick because of close contact with a variety of germs. Colds and flu’s often get passed around the office and when it hits close to home, getting out of bed can be a struggle. Especially these days — the coronavirus known as COVID-19 has been spreading like wildfire, so whether you’ve been contaminated yourself, or you want to avoid being exposed by going to work, many people are using their sick days now more than ever before.

It is normal to take time off when you are not feeling well, so do not feel bad. It is expected to take that time to rest, heal and get better so you can go back to work and be the best employee you can be.

>The best way to call in sick is to do it respectfully and make sure you are following your company’s policy and guidelines.

Some companies have different protocols for calling out sick, so the best way to know you are in proper procedures is double-checking your companies rules and handle calling off professionally. But if you need an excuse for work to let you off sick, try one of these below. Or use these sick quotes to feel …

40 Going Crazy Quotes To Help You Stay Sane (Sort-Of) When You’re Quarantined During The Coronavirus Pandemic

We went from obsessions with social media to social distancing.

As work, school, concerts, restaurants, sporting events, the gym and life as we know it has been canceled, postponed or shut down due to COVID-19 pandemic, we might find ourselves “going crazy” — being stuck in the house during quarantine with nowhere to go, worrying about this new crisis that struck our world.

We have been advised (and even enforced) to self-quarantine due to this global pandemic, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy ourselves and our loved ones from a distance.

Since we are advised to remain inside — whether in self-quarantine or isolation — during this time, it is a great way to protect ourselves and loved ones from the potential exposure to this virus. But since we have to remain indoors for the next couple of weeks, we have to remember to try not to go crazy when we’re feeling cooped up. So these “going crazy” quotes can be super relatable when you’re tired of being alone.

As a society, we are used to going outside and enjoying the great things that life gives us and we often take it for granted. For example, work and school can be tiring and overwhelming, but we forget that our school and work friends and conversations during the day can play a huge role in our lives by giving us daily interaction with others.

We are used to being able to do and go wherever we want and to enjoy seeing our friends and family, so with this virus going around I know it can be frustrating to be forced to stay in the house even if it’s for our own good.

Try to remember to use all of the technology we have to FaceTime our friends and family, Google some in-home workouts, try to cook meals that will boost our immune systems and try to do something in your home that you have been putting off the last few months such as reading a book or assemble your child’s Christmas toy that you have been putting off.

If you just are not in the mood to do any of these things and you just want to vent and relate to the other people who feel a little crazy, too, here are some quotes about going crazy while stuck in the house to help you remember that you …

50 Encouraging Coronavirus Quotes About Social Distancing To Help You Cope With The Isolation

Motivational quotes that encourage you to save lives by staying home.

What’s the difference between quarantine and isolation, and why has social distancing become the new buzz word during the coronavirus pandemic? Because of how rapidly the novel coronavirus is spreading across the world, countries are shutting down and governments are encouraging people to practice “social distance” — reducing the number of people gathering in places and requiring citizens to stay home in an attempt to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Social distancing is the act of separating the public apart due to contagious illnesses during a pandemic.

There are a lot of skeptics online who are creating myths and conspiracies about the virus and questioning the call to self-isolate, but no matter your view or opinion about what is going on, in order to slow of spread of COVID-19, we must practice social distancing and self-quarantine to help those who are more susceptible to severe symptoms.

While many of us start to isolate ourselves at home, many people have started to work from home and companies have adjusted to allow for their employees to work remotely. Students of every grade level are figuring out how to transition to virtual and distance learning for school now that many schools across the country have closed for at least a month, and unfortunately many people have already been displaced or laid off from jobs that can’t be done online.

The facts are present, and there is no reason to panic if we simply practice social distancing. Although being cooped up in our homes 24/7 doesn’t seem like the ideal way to spend the next few weeks — especially during Spring break when everyone just wants to be at the beach — but there is no reason to feel like all hope is lost.

Instead of sitting in your room alone in those sweatpants you’ve worn for the past week, there are a lot of ways to engage with your friends and family and stay in communication with the world around you. For example, anyone with an iPhone can Facetime someone for hours on end — now we’ve got the time to spare to talk to each other.

Another way to stay connected with our friends is with a Google Chrome extension called “Netflix Party.” Download the extension and share the link with your friends to watch any Netflix movie together! It is …

50 Relatable Quotes About Gaining Weight To Use For Your Instagram Caption That Prove You Love Your Body As-Is

Pretty eyes and thick thighs.

Don’t you hate that feeling when you’re getting ready to go out and all you can think about (aka worry about) is how much weight you’ve gained? You spent an hour on your makeup, painstakingly contouring the chipmunk out of your cheeks. Then you spent another hour on your hair, adding height and volume to somehow prove that your body is comparatively smaller than your hair.

You go into your closet and pull out your control top Spanx, and your blousiest blouse. The one that clings to your bosom but flares out beneath, hiding those extra holiday pounds. You reach in and grab your favorite good-butt skinny jeans. You pull them up slowly and indelicately thinking, “I should have let these air dry — clearly they shrunk a little bit in the dryer“.

You pull the button toward the hole with all of your might! But it is of no use — your jeans aren’t going to button today. You officially gained weight.This has happened to all of us at one point or another. We have all “fallen off” our diets or “missed a couple of days” at the gym. We ate too much between Thanksgiving and the new year, partied too hard on our birthdays. We let our lives get in the way of our goal weight.

It can feel very sad and discouraging when we gain weight — especially when we work so hard year-round to lose weight and shed pounds. Worrying so much about gaining weight can make us feel ugly and worthless. It makes us feel like failures.

But not anymore. We live in the age of body positivity. We live in the age of Lizzo and Ashley Graham. These women teach us that we are beautiful at any size. They teach us that it is more important to enjoy lives than to shed an extra couple of pounds.

Go out and have a drink with your girlfriends! Have an extra piece of cake! Don’t be afraid to celebrate holidays with your family, birthdays with your friends, weekdays with your lovers and every day by yourself! Don’t stop enjoying your life in the pursuit of thigh-gappiness.

Here is a list of the best honest and most relatable quotes about gaining weight to help you celebrate those extra pounds and learn to love your body as-is.

20 Powerful Judy Garland Quotes That Describe What Depression Feels Like

Someday I’ll wake up when the clouds are far behind me…

Judy Garland is a household name. We’ve met her in St. Louis, attended her Easter Parade and followed her over the rainbow. She ushered our lives into Technicolor with her angelic voice and all-knowing worldly naivety. She was the face of our childhoods.

But there is a dark history that we don’t acknowledge about Garland — she was deeply and wildly depressed. She attempted suicide multiple times, and spent much of her life in a dark place in her mental health, imagining a world she perceived better by her absence.

Mental health wasn’t talked about during her time — it was taboo and distasteful to expose your pain in public. Sadly, Judy Garland wasn’t given the help she desperately needed, as it was looked down upon and mocked.

Garland has often said that she lived for the crowd. She knew she was adored by her fans, and would do anything for them. But she also knew the difference between adoration and love, and more than anything she craved to feel loved.

In recent years, some of Garland’s third husband, Sid Luft’s, written accounts of her depression were found after his passing. A lot of them told detailed accounts of her suicide attempts.

“What demons inhabited her soul just when life seemed so rich and productive? It was a gigantic puzzlement that she would poison herself … and that the toxic reaction to whatever she swallowed would create an impulse for self-mutilation,” He wrote in his book, Judy & I: My Life with Judy Garland.

It is unbearably sad to think that a woman who brought us so much joy spent her life in so much pain. We must remember we are lucky to live in a day and age full of people who are working hard to normalize the discussion of depression and other mental illnesses. We must continue to work hard to pay attention to our loved ones, and make sure that they get the help they need.

We can only hope that Judy Garland finally found peace as she made her way over the rainbow.

Here are some of the most powerful Judy Garland quotes about depression, and what it feels like to be depressed and sad:

1. We all need to believe in the other side of the rainbow.

“I’ve always taken ‘The Wizard of …

Marijuana has been a topic of controversy for centuries. The first recorded ban on cannabis was documented in the 1300’s in Arabia — yes, people were lighting up even in the dark ages!

There have been many famous people denying the use of weed. Amanda Bynes threw a bong out of a moving car or Bill Clinton famously stating that he didn’t inhale.

There are many ways to consume the plant. Most commonly, weed is smoked, but it can also be cooked into food for edible consumption. There are lotions, pills and oils to help you relax your body and your mind.

Whether or not you believe in legalizing marijuana — either recreationally or medicinally — or not, it is important to stay informed about the positive and negative benefits of weed in all its forms. And a great way to learn about weed is to talk to the people who use it. So take a peek at our collection of the best marijuana quotes about weed and cannabis culture to help you understand more about the controversial plant.
