Waking up in the morning is always a tough moment, with the crushing reality of another dumb day being upon you being a lot to take. HOWEVER, there are certain things that can greatly improve your morning. I’m talking about SMELLS. That’s right, scent is one of the most powerful of all the senses, being tied to both memory and taste (no sense of smell? Your sense of taste is greatly diminished), so what makes a morning better than waking up to a really pleasant aroma? In fact, after doing much research, here are the 7 most pleasant smells to wake up to:
Baked goods don’t just smell good. There are so many more great things that go along with baked goods. Like, for instance, how you can’t just bake one thing, you have to bake a bunch. Which means you’ve got plenty to share. Which means you’ve got plenty to share with the other people in your house, who may just be waking up. EVEN BETTER it may mean they’re apologizing for something stupid they did, and apologies make food taste even better.
A Good Pot of Coffee
Waking up is a hard, long process. So why not expedite the process by ingesting a large amount of caffeine (drink it black, because it makes you seem tough) that was brewed by someone else. Why is it good to have someone else brew it? Because it’s actually tough to make a good cup of coffee, and when a roommate/parent can do it, all the better.
You know what it means when you smell cleaning supplies? It means someone else has cleaned, and you are now off the hook.
Freshly Cut Grass
You know what it means when you smell freshly cut grass? It means someone else has mowed the lawn, and you are now off the hook.
Smelling Salts are technically a horrible aroma, but here’s the good part of waking up to smelling salts: You woke up. Congratulations! After suffering whatever horrible accident you did that made you unconscious, you woke back up again. That’s a huge plus.
New Car Smell
Yes, you woke up in a car, which is worse than waking on a couch, which is worse than waking up in a bed, so it’s two degrees away from the optimum sleeping conditions. But it means you slept in a NEW car, so some things must be going pretty well for you! Or you’re a car thief who got so tired after breaking into someone’s new car that fell asleep. Bad news: There are no good smells to wake up to in jail.
The Smoke From The Burned Village You Just Sacked
This one only applies to early world warlords and Vikings. Also, make sure to destroy the whole village, because that young child you didn’t think would grow up to seek revenge? He will seek it.
