They say that laughter is the best medicine and I couldn’t agree more. Not only does it feel good to laugh but now there’s a lot of research to back that statement up. Laughter stimulates many organs in the body including the heart, lungs and muscles. You take in more oxygen when you laugh. The thoracic duct which is the largest duct in the body widens when you laugh which allows for lymphatic fluid to flow at a much faster rate.
Your lymphatic system is directly tied to your immune system. So laughter quite literally strengthens your immune system, body, health and mood overall. Since the beginning of covid many people have been stressed and affected by the loss of work or the shutdown of their local gym and businesses that they patron. What better way to handle that then to enjoy the lightness of life and get back to laughter, and what better to laugh about than the very thing that you may be stressed by.
I stumbled on this comedian named Tyler Fischer on Instagram, who goes by @tythefisch if you want to follow his work. He creates hysterically funny videos that always put me into a good mood. This one you’re about to see had me laughing to the point of tears. So brace yourself.
Tyler imitates Fauci in the video by warning people about droplets everywhere.
“I’d say even if you live alone I would wear a mask in the house, especially in the shower, because frankly droplets can make their way through the drain and through the toilet infecting them with covid through their anus. Ballpark in 2 to 5 to 25 years we can start thinking about considering the idea of pondering the thought of conceptualizing the possibility of maybe perhaps opening, but probably not. I would avoid having any fun whatsoever in the near to far future.”
You got to laugh and enjoy life. No one else is going to do it for you. I think we can all admit that this virus since the beginning has been a bit confusing. No mask, wear a mask! wear three! no, two masks! The fear that has been promoted is bad for our health. Our nervous system and immune system are in a compromised state when we are fearful. Be brave and breathe that good oxygen!
Thanks to Tyler for grounding us and bringing lightness and brevity to the world at this time.
Warning: This is not medical advice in any way whatsoever. Mask wearing in a shower is not medical advice. You’re more likely to drown in a mask full of water than to get covid in the shower, if I had to guess. But who am I? A journalist.
