A study has found that looking at pictures of cute animals can improve concentration.
It is believed that positive emotion is triggered by cute images, and anything that gives a person happiness, pleasure or joy results in motivation.

Researchers from Hiroshima University in Japan used three groups of students for the study; one group looked at pictures of puppies and kittens, the second looked at adult animals and the third looked at tasty food.
The study found that those students with pictures of puppies and kittens had an increase in performance by an average of 10 per cent.
However, adult animal pictures only improved performance by an average of five per cent, and food pictures had no effect on performance.
The research suggests that the cute pictures can motivate people to perform tasks with greater time and care.
