5. Blue for De-Stressing
Blue, which is the colour of the sky and the ocean establishes calm. It can help you feel centred, relaxed and serene almost instantly. A study performed in the Creighton University found that people who faced difficult tasks felt less anxious after they saw something blue. When you are opting for blue, stick to the light hues as the stronger shades can have a stimulating effect.
6. Red for Energy Boost
Red may appear dark and moody, but it can make you feel more energetic by pumping out more adrenaline. A British study found that Olympic athletes wearing red won significantly more than their opponents who wore other colours. So if you want to feel inspired, add a touch of red here and there. Maybe you can wear red accessories or place a bunch of red flowers in your centre table.
So there you have it. Colour is like music. It is nourishing and uplifting. The more colours you harmoniously absorb throughout the day, the higher will be your sense of well-being.
