If you're crushed by the daily grind, try these pick-me-ups from M.J. Ryan, author of "365 Health and Happiness Boosters." Ryan insists: "Smells can be mood elevators."

  • Apply a scented lotion or one or two drops of your favorite essential oil to your temples and rub gently.

  • Light a candle with a favorite scent before you go to bed to perfume the room. (Just be sure to blow it out before you fall asleep.)
