Have you found yourself seeking out things that have brought you joy in the past? It could be a certain meal, a specific smell or a song. I think we're all kind of doing that, because it's a way to distract from the COVID-19 stress - Not to mention all of the drama and politics on social media. At least we can hide our resting *&%$# face behind our mask, right?

According to Hal McDonald PH.D. with Psychology Today, nostalgia is helping us get through the pandemic.

Nostalgia is, in fact, a common response to distress, and actually serves an adaptive function that can help us emotionally weather tumultuous circumstances such as the one we’re all living through now.

Hopefully, we are providing a little distraction for you with our 'Feel Good 80s Weekends'. You know, going back to the days when our biggest stress was getting our hair as big as possible! We start the party Friday at 5:00 P.M. with a special 'Happy Hour', and the 80s don't stop until Sunday at Midnight!

Remember, we can go with you everywhere with the MY 105.3 App, enable the Alexa skill, or stream us through your Google speaker. If you're streaming the app, you can use your Bluetooth to listen on your portable outdoor speaker. That's actually my go-to when I'm grilling. I have a boom box type speaker with cup holders and it even has wheels!
