Don't Wait for your mood to change, take action despite it!


Life, taking action to despite it! Wow what powerful words, don't you think??


It is about living life with our arms wide open, living like kids again, so we can embrace new ideas, rather than closing ourselves off. Growing, having you done that lately just for you, I know I have NOT just for me!!


"Quote I found- Takers may eat well, but GIVERS sleep well." What have you given back lately just to make YOU feel better??



So let's talk about moods?
What puts you in a good mood, well for me lately, my health, if I can feel good, I am in a pretty good mood, that is the reason for this ME outlook on 2010!!


So Let's talk about Color Moods

How do colors affect our moods?
Color, without our realizing it, can have a profound effect on how we feel both mentally and physically. Dr. Morton Walker, in his book The Power of Color, suggested that the ancient Egyptians as well as the Native American Indians used color and colored light to heal. Below are some emotional associations that humans tend to have with certain colors. These are important to keep in mind in order to create the mood you are seeking




Blue Blue represents peace, tranquility, calm, stability, harmony, unity, trust, truth, confidence, conservatism, security, cleanliness, order, loyalty, sky, water, cold, technology, and depression.
Blue can "slow the pulse rate, lower body temperature, and reduce appetite." Blue is considered a business color because it reflects reliability.


***************************************



Black is the absence of light and therefore, of color.
It represents power, sexuality, sophistication, formality, elegance, wealth, mystery, fear, evil, anonymity, unhappiness, depth, style, evil, sadness, remorse, anger, underground, good technical color, mourning and death.


In speech we say "Don't let a black cat cross your path", "Black Market" or "Black Monday".


*************************************


Green, one of most-often cited favorite colors. It represents nature, environment, health, good luck, renewal, youth, vigor, spring, generosity, fertility, jealousy, inexperience, envy, misfortune.
"Its cool quality soothes, calms, and has great healing powers." It is often worn in operating rooms by surgeons.

***************************************

Red is the color that we pay the most attention to. It is the warmest and most energic color in the spectrum.
We associate red with love, valentines, danger, desire, speed, strength, violence, anger, emergency exit signs, stop signs and blood.
Red can evoke a fight-or-flight response, raise blood pressure and make the heart beat faster.

***********************************

White is what we see when all colors come together in perfect balance.
It represents reverence, purity, simplicity, cleanliness, peace, humility, precision, innocence, youth, birth, winter, snow, good, sterility, and marriage.
We use white in figures of speech like "pure as the driven snow" or "a white lie." We associate white with the good guy in old western movies.

*****************************************

Yellow represents joy, happiness, optimism, idealism, imagination, hope, sunshine, summer, gold, philosophy, dishonesty, cowardice, betrayal, jealousy, covetousness, deceit, illness, hazard, spirtuality and inspiration.
The yellow rose is a symbol of friendship, less passionate or threatening than red ones.

***************************************


Pink is thought to have a calming effect. One shade known as "drunk-tank pink" is sometimes used in prisons to calm inmates. Sports teams sometimes paint the opposing teams locker room pink to keep the players passive and less energetic.
While pink's calming effect has been demonstrated, researchers of color psychology have found that this effect only occurs during the initial exposure to the color.
So as you can see colors truly effect the way you feel, I know I am a black wearer due to my weight and I guess not wanting to stand out, I know someone else that loves Black too, we are going to work on color for the both of us this year! :)
Wow so what is my color for the day, I will let you know later!!
