Placing a photograph of a pet on your desk could make you work faster and more efficiently. Researchers at Hiroshima University in Japan found that looking at pictures of puppies and kittens could improve concentration by as much as 10 %. Experts suggest increased focus is brought on when positive emotions are triggered by something that gives you happiness or pleasure. The research found that people who saw images of baby animals performed even better than those looking at grown-up pets.
