A list of amazing stage shows you can watch online for free, how to add some joy to your most dreaded household chores, a useful online course for those with chronic health conditions, and some fun inauguration content you might have missed. This week’s Good News.

Another day, another list of spectacular free online stage shows and musicals to keep you entertained during the stay-at-home order. Dress up in your fanciest clothes, dim the living room lights, and pretend you just snagged the last good tickets to the theatre, because this list has something for everyone (even the kiddos!).

Does it feel like your chore-load has tripled since the pandemic began? That’s because it probably has – more time spent at home means more time messing it up. Luckily, this article has some great strategies to help you add some joy to your least favourite household tasks. You’ll never dread the dishwasher again! (Okay, maybe not never. But you’ll dread it less!)

Do you or a family member have a chronic health condition? Check out this highly interactive six-week workshop from Living Healthy Champlain. It covers pain management, mental health, how to get a good night’s sleep, and more. The first session is on January 26th – check out the website for information on how to register. (Thanks to AD for sharing this with us!)

If you watched the inauguration of US President Biden last week, you’re probably familiar with the Bernie Sanders meme that’s been making the rounds. He’s been photoshopped into pretty much every situation imaginable (with hilarious results!) and because the internet is a place of eternal discovery, this website will let you photoshop the bemittened senator in front of your house too.

Speaking of the inauguration, here’s one of the best songs from the “Celebrating America” concert, courtesy of Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard. It’s a song of unity and understanding – exactly what we need in these trying times.

Awww of the week: this video of sea lions surfing is both adorable and awe-inspiring.

See you next week!
