Study claims watching cat videos make you more emotionally stable
How many cat videos do you watch on a daily basis? Or even a weekly basis? A study conducted by Indiana University Bloomington claims people who watch cat videos more frequently are more emotionally stable than the average person. Research team spokesperson Jessica Gall Myrick, assistant professor at the School of Journalism, said they studied 7,000 participants and asked about their viewing and how it affects their moods. The participants said watching cat videos drastically improved their mood and relieved them of anxiety, sadness and guilt. From the study, the research team discovered the following findings: cat-final The survey was based on just one question: "YouTube cat videos have amassed over 26bn plays. That’s an average of 12,000 plays for every video. How often do you watch cat videos, and what does this say about you? (1) Never (2) less than once a month (3) 2–3 times a month (4) once a week (5) 2–3 times a week (6) daily (7) multiple times a day." The average was 2-3 times a week to daily. The study was published under the title “Emotion regulation, procrastination, and watching cat videos online” in a scientific journal called Computers in Human Behavior. Jennifer said: “Even if they are watching cat videos on YouTube to procrastinate or while they should be working, the emotional pay-off may actually help people take on tough tasks afterward.” She added the results also suggest that future work could explore how online cat videos might be used as a form of low-cost pet therapy.
