Ever feel guilty sneaking in cute-cat videos while at work? Fess up, we know you're doing it: Cat videos drew 26 billion views on YouTube last year. (Yes, that's billion with a B.) Well don't feel bad, it's good for you—science says so. Science rocks sometimes, doesn't it?
Researchers from Indiana University surveyed 7,000 people and determined that cute-cat videos boost your mood and banish negativity. Watching them lowers feelings of anxiety, annoyance, and sadness and can even give you more energy—so you can save a few bucks and skip that 4 p.m. coffee break.
Even if you do feel a hint of guilt about the procrastination, it'll pale in comparison to the enjoyment you get from viewing the clips, according to the study's findings. Plus, your buoyed mood will help you work harder afterward. (Yes, that is the excuse you can use if your boss catches you giggling at Grumpy Cat.)
So if you're especially stressed, just had a passive-aggressive convo with your cubemate, or are totally dragging mid-afternoon, you know what to do: Bring on the Lil Bub!
