With more confirmed cases and casualties of COVID-19 cropping up every single, it's easy to start losing hope. Especially when there are plenty of things to worry about that aren't just getting sick with a potentially-fatal respiratory illness. Isolation, entire economies on the verge of collapsing, and mostly the uncertainty of our future are just a couple of things that can drive a person insane in no time. But when there's a push towards one direction, there will always be people pushing back and this post is dedicated to everyone fighting all the negativity with fun and wholesome acts and ideas.

From people dressing up as sharks to a man painting watercolor portraits of his neighborhood's dogs, this list contains many examples of people being entertaining, be it for their own families, or everyone out there.

I Saw This Japanese Mom’s Amazing Cooking And Sent It To My Mom, Asked Her If She Could Make One For Me

I was just joking since I’m no longer a kid and living in another continent now. Two hours later she replied with this pic and told me she will be practicing and cook for me when I go back home

Help yourself to a paddle boat which may (hopefully,) make at least bath time a little more fun. :) Please take only 1 so lots of households can enjoy one. p.s.

If you don’t know what it means, John Krasinski (an actor, known for The Office and Jack Ryan, etc.) has a YouTube channel called Some Good News. He and several well-known people he knows threw an online prom for this year’s grads. It was awesome, the channel is awesome, and you should check it out :)
