Scientists have found time in between firing up TheLarge Hadron Collider and finding a cure for the common cold to name the 9 things your home needs to make you happy.

That's right - fill your home with the right things, and moods could be lifted and smiles restored every time you walk in through your front door.

The good news is none of the 9 items need to be expensive. From a made bed and a vanilla scented candle to a diary and sentimental photos, a few small additions to your home can improve your wellbeing on a daily basis.

And the best bit? Number 9 states 'less is more', so you could skip items 1 to 8 and just have a serious declutter to make you happier.

Have a look at the list and see if you agree. Perhaps a vase of fresh flowers set against a green wall is all you need for eternal happiness. Good luck!
