I know that different colours affect me in different ways.
Green is a colour that calms:
A few years ago I was having big problems with mild 'psychosis' - my brain was having problems filtering out signals that were less important from those that were important - so it was like everyone was shouting at me if I was in a space where people were talking and if I was in a place where there was a lot of motion I would feel overwhelmed by all the motion.
One day I was trying to cycle to work and it all started to hit me so take a deep breath and try to find something that was calming - and there in the street ahead of me was a bit of branch that had broken off a nearby tree - green - calming ... so I managed to get to work by focusing on the green and then noticing the next bit of green and focusing on that and then on the next until I got to work.
Red is a colour that I notice more if my mental balance is disturbed
I suffer from an inablity to absorb B12 in my diet which is compounded by an auto-immune response to high levels of B12 in my blood that binds the B12 there and stops it getting through to the cells where it is needed - the only way round this is to keep my B12 levels astronomic and I'm quite good as that but occasionally it dips and my mood starts to drift.
The dashboard in my car is predominantly red and occasionally it becomes really distracting - a warning to me that I need more B12.
At night it can mean that I just want to turn on the lights full beam or use the indicators just to have another colour there
I like blues and purples - they don't really affect my energy levels but they do make me feel happy - glimpses of ground ivy in spring or blue irises as they emerge fill me with joy.
So, do you know how colours affect you and how do you use that knowledge?
