I’ve often wondered how colors can impact our emotions.
Studies show that the color blue can actually lower our blood pressure and heart rate. While red tends to speed things up and excite us a bit. Green gives us a refreshing retreat from the busyness of life and revives us with thoughts of hope and growth. And, did you know… Yellow can trigger certain things for us like focus, feelings of joy and organization?
Colors can have a significant effect on our mood and frame of mind without us even realizing it.
I guess you already know what my favorite color is…yes, it’s pink. I’ve always liked the color even as a child and now in my adulthood it’s still my favorite. Pink is often considered the softer side of red. It’s the color we associate most with everything sweet in this life…cotton candy, bubble gum and all things delicate and feminine.
It’s also the most romantic color. Most women I know associate it with charm and romantic love. It represents the desire we all feel to love and be loved.
For me, the color pink also makes me think of spring. I recently ran across these lines by Rupert Brooke from The Old Vicarage, Granchester. I love how the words just perfectly set the mood for the season and yes…it talks about my favorite color, pink.
Just now the lilac is in bloom,
All before my little room;
And in my flower-beds, I think,
Smile the carnation and the pink; All before my little room; And in my flower-beds, I think, Smile the carnation and the pink;
Isn’t God’s incredible design just breathtaking? The world is truly His canvas.
Blessings to you and your wonderful spring with all the colors God has created.Margo
