Cute animal pictures are good for your brain: SCIENCE

8 August 2014 Have your say

This could be the most significant scientific discovery in history (to animal-loving procrastinators, at least) …

Without cute baby animal pictures where would the internet be? If you’ve ever used Google for work or study purposes, you’ve no doubt been sucked into the never-ending abyss of adorable/hilarious images of our animal friends instead. (Haven’t tried it yet? Get on board). But there may be hope for your productivity yet — a study has revealed that looking at cute animals may actually improve your concentration! We can hear your high-fiving from here.

So, with that in mind, we thought we’d give you a little help with your research/study/work. Here are a few of our favourite things that we hope will not only warm your heart — but may also help you concentrate on what you need to get done today.

You’re welcome.
