A few years ago, I wrote an article about the soothing nature of cat videos. A researcher at Indiana University found that people who watch cat videos reported feeling less stressed, negative, and anxious. Videos of adorable cats helped to make viewers feel more positive and energetic.
Now I don’t know about you, but I think the holiday season can be a stressful time of year. You’ve still got all of your regular work to do at the office, but you also have so many things to get done in your off-hours. It can sometimes feel a little exhausting and overwhelming.
So if you’re feeling some holiday stress (like I am), I thought it might be a good idea for us all to take a couple minutes to enjoy a cat video. I posted a particularly nice one below. Watch and enjoy! And I hope you have a happy (and relaxing) holiday!
