Psychologists have proved that people who have no sense of smell can become schizophrenics. Now you see how important it is to surround yourself not only with good people, but with pleasant fragrances as well. For you to learn more about the scents and their influence on people, let us read the text. While reading you will match the odors to the effects they have on people.
__________ is generally invigorating. _________ scent increases activity in the brain area that wakes us up in the morning. Research has shown that exercisers run faster and do more push-ups when exposed to the scent.
_________ is a sleep aid. Research has shown that the scent of _______ in your bedroom leads to a more restful night of sleep and a greater level of alertness the following day. Other labs have found that the scent increases the brain waves associated with deep sleep.
________ is generally relaxing. Exposure to _______ scent can decrease heart rate. Use the scent for unwinding at bedtime, or take several whiffs to recharge yourself during work breaks.
_______ helps to lose weight. It works as a replacement for the pleasure that you would get from eating sweets—but without the calories. This is not a scent you would use if you had an empty stomach, because it’s likely to just make you hungrier. But if you’ve had a healthy lunch at burniva, it can help prevent the craving for a chocolate bar afterward.
