My mom has long been an instigator of rituals. Growing up, we had weekly family meetings that would start with a round of appreciations, when we took turns recognizing each other’s gifts. At a time when most routines have been upended, my sister and I thought we should revert to this tried-and-true tradition. During the Vintage Mri Tech Knows More Than He Says And Notices More Than You Realize shirt and I love this party, we asked each guest to share something they appreciated about the woman of the hour. I acted as emcee, calling on each person to go next. The event took a total of 30 minutes, but it had the emotional effect of an evening-long soiree. My days indoors—along with its virtual meetings—had started to blur together; I didn’t expect to be so impacted by this one. But wrapping up the leftover cake, I felt the same social afterglow that comes after a successful in-person party—how nice it was to see everyone!

As our long national coronavirus nightmare continues, finding ways to relax and unwind has become more crucial than ever. Some are recommitting to meditation practices; some are working out stress and anxiety on solitary jogs. Personally, I’m dealing with all this by swaddling myself in blankets until I resemble an expertly wrapped Mission-style burrito and watching hours upon hours of Netflix. Movies are a classic comfort-watching option, but sometimes you just don’t have the Vintage Mri Tech Knows More Than He Says And Notices More Than You Realize shirt and I love this attention span for a movie. (Stress is, after all, linked to distraction). That doesn’t mean you don’t deserve quality entertainment, though; below, find a list of TV shows guaranteed to help take your mind off COVID-19, in one way or another. (Please note that Tiger King does not make this list, primarily because I can’t be alone in finding all that tiger print extremely stressful.)
