Change Your Underwear, Change Your Mood

Colors can affect your energy levels, mood, and emotions

Color is an amazing gift from nature. It is a living vibrational energy that is perceived and absorbed by your senses. It has a subtle yet potent interaction with your emotions and brain.

The colors you wear can reflect how you are feeling to the world. You can intentionally wear colors to shift your mood or you can hide from the world (black is the color which shrinks your presence). There are colors that stimulate the thinking (left) side of your brain and colors that stimulate the creative (right) side of your brain. There are colors to help you relax and others to energize and excite you. While some colors encourage communication, others evoke stillness.

Did you know that yellow is the first color perceived by the human eye?

Below are some useful insights from my journey with color workshops over the past two decades. Color is definitely a fabulous healthy living trick to add to your wellbeing tool box.

Simply by changing the color of your underwear, you can subtly fuel your energy reserves or balance your emotional needs. It is easy to do, no one need know what you are doing, and I guarantee you will feel a difference!

Feeling tired? Grab a red pair. Stressed out? Try some calming blue. If you are emotionally upset, go for the orange, and if you are in need of some optimism, switch to yellow.

Color Your World for Balance

1.) Red will give you a boost of energy while stimulating your immune system. But beware -- it can also activate your appetite! It evokes action and passion, and it is a perfect color if you tend to be a procrastinator.

2.) Orange will allow you to digest your emotions without holding onto stuff and encourage emotional balance and optimism. It is warm hearted and offers a sense of community as well as a feeling of tolerance -- a perfect color for social gatherings.

3.) Blue is tranquil and peaceful. It has been proven to reduce pain levels. It aids in acquiring inner peace and supports creativity. Blue is associated with the creative (right) side of the brain.

4.) Green refreshes, encourages growth, and is balancing and healing. It is nurturing and associated with the heart. Green promotes prosperity and well being. Green, of course, is a combination of blue and yellow.

5.) Yellow lifts your spirits and gives you a positive feeling. It evokes confidence and joy. It is connected to your thinking and improves attention to detail and academic achievement. It improves concentration and clarity of thought.

6.) Purple is known to heighten your intuition. It is similar to blue in that it offers comfort and calm. A great color for meditation.
