According to a team of Japanese researchers, just looking at this picture will make you more productive.


As well as stirring warm, happy feelings, and taking the internet by storm, photos of cute little kittens and puppies actually make us more productive at work.

A new study by Hiroshima University has revealed that our accuracy, speed and performance when completing detailed tasks improves after viewing images of baby animals.

The reason? Cute creatures, with their big eyes and large heads, resemble human babies, triggering instinctive care-giving impulses that make us more alert and focused.

So instead of having that mid-afternoon coffee, maybe google “baby chimpanzee“ instead.
