How Netflix Comedies Can Be Good In Quarantine
Hello all! Today FY Writer/Editor Michelle will share a small piece on the magic of Netflix comedies during quarantine. We hope you try them out, and enjoy them as much as we do!
COVID-19 turmoil on a local and global scale is devastating. On top of that, many of us are separated from friends and family. But, at the end of the day, when you’ve done all you can to be healthy, you still need to take time and watch something lighthearted. How else are we going to make it through?
According to the article, Stress relief from laughter? It's no joke from the Mayo Clinic, laughter can positively stimulate organs, relax stress response, and soothe tension in the short-term. Long-term, the article continues, it can improve the immune system, relieve pain, aid in coping, and improve mood. We are NOT trying to say that laughter is a cure for the novel Coronavirus! (If you have been exposed or experience symptoms, speak to your doctor immediately.) Rather, we mean that laughter is a positive thing for mind, body, and spirit. This can only help you, so why not?
With this in mind, it only makes sense that if you’re watching copious amounts of Netflix anyways, many of those choices could be comedies! Personally, when quarantine became official in Illinois, I became depressed. The problems of normal life did not stop, and coping with these issues while in social isolation became more difficult. Finally, my sister asked me what I’d been watching on Netflix, and convinced me to opt for lighthearted content.
