Buzzing alarm clocks, breakfast on the go, traffic jams ... this is the way many of us begin our days. We get to our desks a little frazzled and start responding to emails, making phone calls and getting on with work. Well, we know what it's like and we have an idea.

Before you kick off your first morning meeting, take a moment to pause and find something joyful to look at. May we suggest these nine smile-inducing photos of cute baby animals? Do yourself a favor and bookmark this page for whenever you need a pick-me-up. You'll thank us later.

So what exactly are we looking at here? In the photo above, a three-week-old rhino runs with her mother Tanda at the Ramat Gan Safari, an open-air zoo in the Mediterranean metropolis of Tel Aviv. The baby was the first female born there in 20 years. The new rhino will eventually be transferred to other zoos to take part in the White Rhino reproduction project aimed at increasing the population of this species in a zoo.

Below, we've rounded up a few more photos from the Israeli safari as well as from other locales around the globe that are sure to make you instantly happy.
