Food for thought: do cute animals really decrease your stress levels and make you über productive?

Ah, commercial science. Where do I start with this one, since I’ve only read the pop-science version of the study (so far)?

While I read the nitty-gritty for you, and draw my own conclusions of their conclusions, here are my thoughts on the same:

  1. They seriously commissioned a whole study on this? #OnlyInJapan
  2. Is there really science involved in saying we, as humans, like pretty and cute things?
  3. COME ON, MAN– PUPPIES! Obviously it’s true we like cute things. Also obvious that we need to know why so we can exploit the same!
