Do you smell THAT?!?!?

I’m very fortunate to be called on every year to help out with buffalo bills training camp. As a personal trainer and an avid people studier, both my needs are fulfilled and everyday is a blast.

As im getting ready to take my post, I grab a slice of pizza to sustain me, and I notice THAT SMELL, if you can imagine the smell of pizza, beer, and irish springs soap blended together into a dull, but very real background smell, you’ll get an idea of what im talking about.

And if you live on a college campus right now, then you might find yourself becoming acutely aware of said scent this very moment.

That smell activated so many different thoughts and memories in me so rapidly and powerfully.

All those thoughts made me nostalgic for my good ol’ college days, where i’d stay up until 7am playing sega dreamcast and then not go to my 8am biology class…:(

Stop for a moment and think about those smells that evoke powerful feelings and memories in you now.

I’m constantly amazed at the incredible connectivity of our nervous system and sense. One sense can trigger a memory, which triggers another sense, etc.

It’s the reason why we as men and women wear cologne and perfume; we understand on a deep, primal level that smells can affect our emotional state.

What scents can you fill your workspace with to strengthen and empower yourself?

What smells take you back to your childhood?

What smells remind of you of things that you’d rather forget?
