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. Sneak preview of Monday morning

Nothing is more sinister than the snooze button. I TRUSTED YOU!

2. Master criminal

A brilliant plan, with just one roadbump: You've broadcast your strategy to the world! Now your photo's up at every Crumbl cookie shop! The lesson: Keep your genius – and your cookies – to yourself. Quiet luxury.

3. Crystal clear

Listen, it's a video on the internet with a glass door. We know how this is ending.

4. The daily dog

Today's pupper would like its privacy please ... either that, or it really wants to show off his stuffed animal.

5. Free ride

The man looked like he was getting dragged away from the alien from "Alien" – so definitely not scaring the next kids in line, nope.

Bonus breather

To help you cope with the rest of your day, 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.
