While taking a walk the other day we noticed how looking at the fall leaves made us feel, well happy! We love FALL- the cool air, leaves falling and of course HALLOWEEN! But what is it exactly that makes us feel so good when we see all the colors? Can colors you see or wear really affect your mood? We decided to do some research, and guess what? THEY DO AFFECT YOU. Check out how each color is supposed to make you feel, then try it out yourself and see if it’s true. Don’t forget to come back here and tell us what you discover.
Let’s Start with the FALL COLORS.
YELLOW:: There is a reason why the smiley face is always yellow. Yup Yellow is supposed to make you feel cheerful and happy. But did you know that it is also associated with inspiration and intelligence. So the next time you have a big test, wear something yellow. It might not make you get the answers right but it could make you smile!
RED: The color of LOVE and passion. (I know gross right?) But did you know that red is also known to stimulate your appetite. That is why so many restaurants use it in their decor. So if you’re on a diet you might want to stay away from the color of AMORE!
ORANGE: This color is supposed to make you feel excited and give you energy. It is also a warm color that makes others feel welcomed. Grace says the next time she has PE she is going to wear something orange. Others might feel more welcomed to pass her the ball!
No wonder we feel so good when we are surrounded by fall leaves!!! Here are what other colors might make you feel.
BLUE: Kind of ironic that people who are feeling sad are said to be feeling “BLUE” because actually blue is supposed to make you feel calm and relaxed. So if you are feeling stressed… just look up at the sky!
GREEN: Green is the most common color found in nature. It is said to make one feel less stressed and refreshed. Kermit the frog might not think it is easy being green but others find the color very appealing. That is why many hospitals and doctor’s offices paint the walls green and actors sit in a “GREEN ROOM” before going on stage.
PURPLE: (The color of Grace’s room) Like orange and red, purple is know to stimulate and energize. It is also known as the color of royalty and creativity. Hmmm… perhaps that is why Grace always feels like drawing while sitting in her room!
WHITE: This is the color associated with feeling peaceful and innocent. It is also said to make you feel light and clean. Every time we wear white it is a sure invitation for someone to spill something on us thus making whatever we wear no longer white or clean.
BLACK- They say to wear black for a job interview and not just because it possibly makes you look thinner. Nope black is said to make you feel serious, powerful and responsible. If black makes you feel all these strong GOOD traits, why does the BAD GUY in the movies always wear black?
