    I absolutely love looking at baby animal pictures, they are so relaxing and cute! Looking can make any mood 20x better; whether sad, angry, confused, drained, empty. At work I sometimes will take a breather just to look at cute baby animals.

      Hi Kait, thanks for sharing how baby animal pics help shift how you feel when you’re having those not so good feelings. It sounds like they are a good respite during your days at work. ~kat

    Ah, I love this. Thank you for this article, Kat. I love baby animals (and just animals in general) so i can really relate to the feel good analogy. But I didn’t know all the effects and science behind.

    It just gives me more reason to continue gazing at adorable animals even more! Yay!

    I am not sure which baby animal was the cutest of those you shared in your article! They are all soooooooooooooo adorable. Baby “anything” is always cute in my eyes, And it just brightens my day that you have shared this,

    I think you should add some baby sea creatures too though 😉

    • Kat says:

      Hi Zasibel, not that we need an excuse to look at baby animal pics, but having science behind us definitely helps. I’ll take on your feedback and add some baby sea animals too, thanks for the idea 🙂 ~kat

    The cuteness of the pictures is killing me. It is funny; I wrote an article about where to find daily pics of cats on my blog this week as well. The whole premise of the post was that it would enhance your mood. Studies have shown that people who start their day with something happy and positive have more good days than people who do not.

    That is why I try to look at images that make me feel good in the morning instead of reading a newspaper which will remove my joy.

    This is a great post; thank you for writing it. I love the baby animal pictures. The dopamine is already starting to work.

      Hi Dovey, I didn’t realise you’ve written a post of cat images this week! I will have to pop over and have a look lol! Yes, starting our day right definitely helps us set up for a great day. Thanks for sharing. ~kat

  4. Who doesn’t love looking at baby animals? I love taking a few moments to just bask in their adorableness. Sometimes I will share some pics to my Facebook page with a note of encouragement for those might need a pick-me-up.

    This reminds me of a meme I saw with a baby bat (I was surprised at how cute it was!) and a person petting it with one finger. The caption says, “Stop touching me, I am the night!”. I think about this a lot and get a good giggle from it.

    • Kat says:

      Hi Heather, I love your sharing of the baby bat, too cute! Yes, looking at baby pics really does have a positive effect on us. Thanks for sharing ~kat

    Amazing and very interesting article Kat. I always loved watching cute baby animal pictures and I couldn’t explain why. But your post explained so much. I had no idea that those cute baby animal pictures have so many positive effects on our brain like helps to improve productivity at work, improves focus and attention. And the most interesting thing for me was that our brain releases a hormone called dopamine. And last, but nor least and I could not agree more that it definitely helps to rid off negative feelings.Thank you so much for sharing this post.

      Thank you Marius, yes, it’s funny how many things in life can make a difference but unless we are aware of this, they can go unnoticed. Blessings ~kat

    Hi Kat, You are so right. The nicest thing in and around the house we have 2 baby kittens right now. The real-life thing is probably the best. I’ll be sure to make cute pictures of them while they are young, so we can use them when they are all grown up, to boost our positive mindset and feelings. Thanks for sharing. I love to read more on the research done with the students. Thanks for adding that too. This will come in handy for my own clients too.

    • Kat says:

      Hi Nanda, two of your very own kittens, how adorable. Definitely take as many photos of them while they’re young. I asked my daughter for images of her kittens too which one of them feature here :). They really are simply beautiful and calming to be with and watch. Enjoy ~kat

    Oh my goodness, Kat those pictures are so cute. It’s funny my sister’s toddler is so cute every time I have a bad day at work I look at her picture and I’m full of giddy.

    We haven’t had a baby in 20 years and then one comes along, it’s like magic.

    Thanks for sharing. I

    • Kat says:

      Haha, thanks Kelyee. I aim to please :). Baby animals and our human babies really do have a positive effect on us for sure ~kat

    I wrote about using cute baby animals as a pick you up instead of slipping into unconscious eating as well! The attraction of the baby schema is why I think so many of the augmented reality filters in SnapChat change faces to have exaggerated eyes and thinner jawlines.

    • Kat says:

      I hadn’t made that connection with the snapchat filters Kendra thanks for pointing that out lol! You do have a good point. Thanks for sharing ~kat
