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.

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 …

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 …

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 …

30 Motivational Quotes To Use In Your Gym Selfie Instagram Captions

Work it out!

Working out can be incredibly fun and very beneficial. However, the best part of a workout is getting to take a gorgeous gym selfie for Instagram — because what is the point of going to the gym if you don’t have pictures to prove it?

I, personally, am obsessed with spin classes, and part of the reason is because I have no idea how to ride a real bike … so it’s the closest option. In all seriousness, I love the feeling I get when I am doing well in a difficult spin class. It’s exhilarating! I also love the feeling I get when I post a cute post workout picture on Instagram and get to watch the likes roll in.

I’m also guilty of liking every gym selfie that comes across my feed. I love to learn about what workouts other people enjoy and learn about their workout journey through their Instagram stories. Seeing someone post about working out can also give me the motivation I need to go to the gym.

As everyone knows, the hardest part about going to the gym is physically deciding to go to the gym! Having the motivation to wake up and go to an early morning gym class can be really difficult.

It is so much easier to make an excuse and say “I’ll just go tomorrow.” In times like that, it is helpful to be inspired by others. Sometimes, even looking at a simple Instagram gym selfie will get me up and out of my house in the morning for an early SoulCycle.

When I post my workout selfies, I do it in the hopes that I can motivate just one other person to push themselves out of their comfort zone and into a workout class. However, the hardest part about an instagram workout selfie is finding the perfect eye-catching inspirational caption that isn’t just “beast mode.”

If you also need help finding a motivational quote to use in your gym selfie instagram caption, read on.
