Here’s one stress reliever you may have forgotten about… popping bubble wrap.
Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day is celebrated the last Monday in January.
The original name for bubble wrap was “air cap,” and it was marketed as a textured wallpaper.
Bubble wrap was created by two engineers in 1957 and has come a long way since then.
A survey in 2012 found that one minute of popping bubble wrap is equal to the same stress relief you’d get from a 33-minute massage.
