Jennifer Aniston’s Message on Instagram About Wearing A Mask Is Important

COVID-19 has taken over our lives in every way possible. If you had been able to tell past you that you’d be looking for masks that match your summer outfits, you’d never believe yourself. Quite honestly, I thought we’d all kind of given up the whole “wear a mask” thing the very second we decided not to work in the medical industry, if that is the route you took. Things change though, and quickly, as we’ve learned this year more than ever before, and now the mask look is the only look.

Luckily, a lot of clothing stores and online companies have become mask making extraordinaires, giving us more options than we’ve ever thought possible. You can get little dainty handmade masks, plain masks, even sequin masks as far as I am concerned, and there really isn’t much of an excuse to not get your hands on one… even if you just go the drive thru route and stop at your local McDonalds, A&W, or Tim Horton’s.

I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down... jobs are being lost... health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough. ⠀ ⠀ I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this 🥰 BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate 🙏🏼 ⠀ ⠀ If you care about human life, please... just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same ❤️

If you’re anything like me, only recently have you truly realized the severity that not wearing a mask brings, and are now realizing the importance of it. Celebrities are starting to step out and explain and speak on why masks are so important. When you have such a large platform it’s so important to use it for the right things, and Jennifer Aniston is definitely doing exactly that on Instagram right now.

I know it’s kind of hard to compare the situation in the states to the one in Canada right now, but the reason we’re doing so much better, aside from the difference in population, is the fact that we’ve been super careful – masks and all. If you don’t have a mask… I know I’m not your mom and I don’t want to tell you what to do or boss you around, but you should get one.

I read this thing the other day that was like “wearing a mask is a sign of mutual respect”. Honestly, what more could you ever want in this life than a mutual respect between you and those around you?

Happy mask shopping!
