These can be stressful, overwhelming times, and we want to help – so to start your day with a smile, we're going to post five funny viral videos and memes every morning. Because there's no better time for a good laugh than during bad times, and we believe in starting the day on the right foot even when things feel like they're all going wrong.

Enjoy – then be safe, be smart and be healthy. We're in this together.

1. Big Willy style

Just enjoy the pure joy of watching a person dance and properly celebrate that we're living in the Willennium.

2. Fresh feline

Look, it's live footage of me refusing to leave the air conditioning and go outside during the summer.

Honestly, it's got air conditioning, it's got snacks – what's not to like about living inside the fridge? Suddenly that weird scene in "Joker" makes sense now ...

3. But I just finally learned how to properly spell "Timothée"

I actually got stressed out watching this comedy clip that I was falling behind yet again. The culture, it moves so fast! (Warning: a few profanities)

And I had just learned how to tell Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund apart.

4. The daily dog(s)

Would you like to see a bunch of happy dogs riding their version of a roller coaster, driven by a charming and delightful 80-year-old man? Do I even have to ask?

5. Impressive pup

OK, though I admit I'm not sure he's as much balancing the rice cakes as much as he's just letting a person stack them on him.

Bonus breather

To help you cope with the rest of your day of social distancing and processing the news, here's a little bonus breathing exercise to calm the nerves and provide a little digital therapy.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
