Work can sometimes be challenging. We all have the occasional bad day when nothing seems to go right. So what should you do if you’re currently having one of those bad days? Well, you might want to consider watching a cat video.

According to a research study conducted at Indiana University, cat videos make people feel more positive and energetic. People who watch cat videos reported feeling less stressed, negative, and anxious. And taking a break to watch a short cat video can give people the boost they need to take on challenging tasks and ultimately be more productive.

So just in case you’re having a bad day, I thought I’d include a link to a cat video. There are so many to choose from, but I think this one is both adorable and soothing. Enjoy! And I hope your day gets better!
