Yesterday was the 12th annual Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. If you’re stressed out that you missed it, we might have a solution for you.

Bubble Wrap has always been great for cushioning fragile items during shipping, and we all know it’s fun to pop. So now a company that makes bubble wrap is embracing the product’s use as a stress reliever.

A survey by Sealed Air Corporation, found that one minute spent popping Bubble Wrap relieves as much stress as a 33-minute massage.

People who pop Bubble Wrap are 7% less likely to be stressed out by missing a flight, 4% less likely to be bothered by a hotel losing their reservation, and 6% less likely to worry about their health.

Supposedly, the benefit of popping Bubble Wrap is that unlike yoga or meditation, it’s instant gratification. And 44% of men and 35% of women say quicker is better when it comes to relieving stress.
