Fun videos to watch as you “shelter at home”

Fun videos to watch as you “shelter at home”

Here’s the sad reality we’re all facing as we work from home by ourselves: we need breaks during the day. Not that some of us aren’t busier than ever – it’s just we’ve all regained that commuting time, as well as canceled events time, driving to and from time, etc. And sitting in a chair all day takes its toll. What can we do to keep our spirits up and amuse us now?

I tried to find the most popular videos on YouTube during COVID-10 but Google thought I wanted to see COVID-19 videos. Nope. Not even a little bit. I’m looking for something to watch besides all the hours of politicians talking, other countries warning their citizens, and the talking heads.

Here’s a totally subjective list of videos to watch now – silly and fun videos for when you need a break. If you have any you’d like to add, let me know and I’ll add more. I NEED these for my sanity! (Bonus points if you tell me how many hours you wasted watching these. And remember, as Drew Carey says, the points don’t matter…)

I hope you have as much joy watching these as I had fun writing this. Who else can say they spent an hour watching videos on YouTube and laughing as “research?” Have a great day working from home!
