You may already notice smell is probably the strongest sensation. It can give you pleasure, or take pleasure away from you. We all have been through situations like one day you wake up all happy and chipper, but then a foul odor from the neighbor just ruins it all. Fortunately, these scents can help save your day:

Freshly-cut grass

If you are in distress, maybe you should consider giving your lawn a cut. Freshly-cut grass releases a substance that eases stress and regulates hormones responsible for causing depression. There are perfumes that are derived from freshly-cut grass.

Vanilla

The smell of vanilla does not just get your mouth all moist but also stimulate the production of happiness hormones. Numerous studies have put vanilla at the top of the scents associated with happiness and relaxation.

Coffee

Yes, you do not have to actually drink coffee to enjoy its waking effect. Just the smell of coffee brewing alone can brighten your morning. The invigorating aroma stimulates the production of dopamine, a happy brain chemical.

Cleaning Supplies

Although these smells are not natural, but as a culture, we usually associate positively with them. A study from Brigham Young University (2009) stated that clean smell increase moral, ethical and charitable behavior. When you are staying in a room with spritzed with cleaning liquid, you might feel more likely to volunteer time and donate money. The conclusion is there is a link between morality and cleanliness, and cleanliness shapes our impressions of people and organizations.

Human brain reacts to smells in a surprising way. A pleasant smell can kick start your day faster than any energy drink. Try these smells and find your favorite so that you can give yourself a quick boost of happiness whenever you need.
