Ditch that stale pine-scented air freshener. According to a survey published in Women's World, driving around with citrus scents improve your commute in four ways:

  1. Boosts your mood
  2. Slashes driving errors
  3. Increases your focus
  4. Reduces road rage

Research shows that the smell of lemon, orange, grapefruit, and lime sharpens focus and improves reaction time by a whopping 54 percent! Just think of how much smoother your next traffic jam could go!
