Almost every person, everywhere around the world, is stressed out at least some part of their day. What can we say, it’s just a way of life, unfortunately.
There are many ways and suggestions about dealing with stress – working out, meditating, yoga, reading, napping and the list goes on and on and on..
However, New York has come up with a new way to help its citizens deal with stress, and a pretty cool way at that!
Instead of waiting to get home or to the gym to work on getting rid of that stress, now you can deal with it in the middle of the street, and no, we are not talking about punching a stranger but, instead, punching a Public Punching Bag!
How awesome is that?!
“Public Punching Bags” were debuted by the studio at New York City Design Week last month, a week-long celebration dedicated to all things design.
“The concept explores designing common spaces for the frustrations we all face,” the studio said. “Frustrations that go beyond designed systems and happen, well, because we are human.“
“The public punching bag offers an outlet for these emotions as a means to maybe develop a healthier way to address personal and collective issues in a public setting,” the studio continued.

Bright yellow punching bags, with a fist on it, are placed around different locations in the city. It says “Public Punching Bag” on it, “Use at your own risk” and “A healthy place for frustrations”.
You gotta agree, they got everything right about this concept.
I wish this was something we could do all around the world! You missed your bus? Hit the punching bag! Store closed right in front of your nose? Hit the punching bag! If only there was someone we can talk to about implementing this concept everywhere..
