Are you a pessimist? Do you hate wearing the mask against coronavirus?

Well, my friend, I'm here to help you become more positive about wearing the mask. Here you have some hidden pros of masks!

NOBODY WILL RECOGNIZE YOU

We all have some people we'd love not to meet. You don't have to lie, I completely get it. But we have a solution!

If you wear a mask (which you should, by the way) you're already pretty unrecognizable, but, now that we're in summer, you can wear sunglasses et voilà! Nobody will know it's you!

Okay, this will probably create some weird situations with your friends, who probably won't recognize you either. But that's a small price to pay and you're going to laugh a lot with your friends about it.
YOU CAN SING

I don't know about you, but I love to sing. I also sing pretty badly, but that's a story for another time. The thing is that I love singing while I'm out and about, especially on public transportation.

I have my headphones with my favourite songs in and I move my lips as if I was lip syncing. Now I know why people looked at me like I was crazy.

Now, with my mask on, nobody will notice that I'm singing! And, since the mask prevents a bit of my voice from coming out, I do actually sing a little (quietly, of course).

By the way, I also did an episode where I talk about this hidden pros and even more! Check it out!
YOU CAN LIE

Okay, okay, okay. We shouldn't lie because that's not what good people do. But let's be honest, we all lie. And as long as you don't put anyone's life in danger, I think it's all good. Call me a bad person, I can't hear you. For real, you're talking to your phone bro.

Well, with the mask lying will be easier, 'cause people won't be able to see your mouth and nose AND if you put on sunglasses (only if you need them tho, otherwise it'd be weird and people could tell that you're putting them on for a not-so-honest reason) you'll be a perfect liar! You could even wink at them and they won't notice!
THEY HIDE YOUR PIMPLES

We all know that quarantine food wasn't the healthiest and your face is probably covered in pimples. Don't worry, it's all natural and nothing to be ashamed of, I have a lot of pimples too.

But if you feel conscious about it, the mask solves everything! It covers a lot and you won't have to worry about trying to cover the pimples with makeup (but if that makes you comfortable, then go for it!).

And now you have it! I hope this article made you feel a bit more positive about wearing the mask. Remember to do it! Byeee.
