Looking At Baby Animals To Boost Productivity

 

Want to get more done and boost productivity?

Having trouble concentrating?

Wish you had better focus?

Well grab a cup of coffee and settle down to look at some cute baby animal pictures. 

Uhh What???

That’s right, according to a new study  looking at cute baby animal pictures actually increases productivity!

Scientists at Hiroshima University conducted a study to examine the effects of animals’ cuteness (referred to in Japan as “kawaii”) on human behavior.

Results show that participants performed tasks requiring focused attention more carefully after viewing cute images. This is interpreted as the result of a narrowed attentional focus induced by the cuteness-triggered positive emotion that is associated with approach motivation and the tendency toward systematic processing.

For the study, Nittono and his colleagues studied a group of 48 students as they completed a task similar to the American board game “Operation.”

The students attempted the task three times;

First after looking at a series of pictures of baby animals,

The students who looked at cute animals did far better at the game then did peers who observed adult animals or food, outperforming their peers by a “significant margin,” according to Gawker.

Researchers theorized several reasons for the improvement.

1. One reason was linked to a behavior tendency of adults to slow down speech when talking to puppies and kittens.

These behaviors “may transfer to subsequent task performance,” according to the Washington Post.

 

2. Another reason may be connected to nurturing instincts. “If viewing cute things makes the viewer more attentive, the performance of a non-motor perceptual task would also be improved,” the study stated.

Whatever the reasons may be, the results of this study are going to make a lot of people happy!
