Pick a shade, set your day’s mood
Light consists of the seven colour energies — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Each colour is connected to various areas of our body and will affect us differently emotionally, physically, and mentally. By learning how each colour influences us, we canÊ effectively use colour to give us an extra boost of energy when we need it.
If you wake up in the morning with little energy, or you need to prepare for a business meeting, this is where the power of colours can help. All you have to do is reflect on the type of day you have planned; choose the colour that will help you meet the
demands of the day; and then absorb that particular colour. It’s like fueling your system with the right kind of gas.
