A good excuse to watch those cute animal videos

Hey, Rich Dale here.  This might be the best excuse to sit on your phone all day!  Not to mention a great excuse for watching super-cute animal videos.

A new study from the University of Leeds has found that watching videos of cute animals can relieve anxiety and stress.  People in the study had their blood pressure and heart rates taken before and after watching adorable animal videos.

Not super-surprisingly, researchers found both dropped significantly as the videos played.  In fact, according to the study, anxiety levels were also reduced on average by 35%.

I knew I was on the right track.  Take THAT, dudes who mock me.  Serenity now!
