Laughter therapy: it’s okay
If you’re needing a little levity during this social-distancing era, here are some shelter-in-place spring break staycation postcards guaranteed to make you smile. While the coronavirus (COVID-19) is no laughing matter, many experts say it’s okay to laugh during this pandemic. I learned from one op-ed piece that it’s called gallows humor – grim and ironic humor in a desperate or hopeless situation.
Finding humor is one way people cope with stress. I am definitely taking the coronavirus serious as I haven’t left my home in nearly three weeks; I’ve learned how to make face masks and disinfectant wipes; and I’ve scrubbed my hands so much that even lotion can’t repair my cracked skin.

I’ve also helped out a friend who owns a restaurant by creating some social media marketing to help promote he’s open for delivery and carryout. And just today I created a communication plan and content for a client that offers technology that could potentially help with the N95 respirator mask shortage. Too early for me to share details, but wanted to demonstrate that in some small way I hope I can make a difference in some capacity.
Laughter therapy: shelter-in-place postcards
So when I came across these funny shelter-in-place postcard images of my friend Jeff on Facebook, I asked for his permission to post on my blog. Jeff and I went to high school together in Iowa (we were in the band together) and life eventually brought us both to the Twin Cities area in a roundabout way. Jeff’s also a gifted singer and actor – and an elementary school library and media specialist who loves to travel.
Since travel is not an option during his spring break this week, Jeff is creating a series of COVID-19 shelter-in-place staycation postcards. I hope they provide you a calming respite and much-needed distraction during these uncertain times.
Stay home. Stay healthy. Stay connected. And if you’re having a little coronavirus anxiety, remember it’s okay to find joy while we navigate through this new way of life.

I hope these images brought you a little laughter therapy during this social distancing era. Stay healthy, my friends!
