Sniff a lemon

Sniff a lemon. Yep, you read that right. To improve your day, simply sniff a lemon. Scientists at Tel Aviv University suggest that the citrus fragrance of the lemon can alleviate depression and boost our mood. Indeed, the smell of a lemon boosts your levels of serotonin (a feel-good hormone) and lowers levels of norepinephrine (a stress hormone), so improve your day by burning a lemon scented candle or spritzing on a lemony fragrance, or you could just go all out and sniff a lemon.
