The gift of smell and what your nose knows

By  |  0 Comments

Can you imagine not being able to smell something burning, or the wonderful smell of baking when you pass a bakery? The aroma of the coffee brewing, or the fragrance of your favorite dish cooking?

As an important sensory organ, our nose plays a vital role in how we perceive and experience life. The variety of smells and fragrances we come in contact with have a significant effect on our moods, trigger memories and even change the way we relate to people. Besides the experiential aspect, the sense of smell impacts our health and when we lose the ability to smell, it can influence our food habits, nutrition, overall health and safety.

Read on to find out why the gift of smell is precious, and why the ability to smell is crucial and how it can affect our health.

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
