Color! It’s all around us, but it actually has more of an effect than simple aesthetics. Colors have been psychologically proven to affect your mood and chemistry. So, the next time you’re picking out a new shade of polish or repainting your home or even just purchasing a gift for a vina, rely on some science to help you decide which hue to use.
FOR PRODUCTIVITY: GREEN
Green not only reduces anxiety but also produces the least amount of eye strain, allowing your other senses to become stronger and less stressed as well. Paint your office a nice olive color, or set the background of your smartphone or computer to a calming leafy green forest.
FOR A POWERFUL IMPRESSION: BLACK
What’s more intimidating and deadly than black? Not only is black chic and timeless, but studies show that it promotes aggression and symbolizes authority and power. So the next time you want to intimidate the competition or just boost your inner slayer, pick out a matte shade for your nails or an all black outfit.
FOR A KILLER WORKOUT: ORANGE
Orange has been proven to increase the transmission of oxygen to the brain, which results in an energizing effect. If you have a home gym, paint it orange! Or wear a neon orange shade on your next run or swim.
FOR A LUXURIOUS TREAT: DEEP PURPLE
Treat yo’ self with an eggplant shade. That’s right, dark purple is often associated with luxury or creativity. Wrap your next gift in dark purple paper, or paint a room purple, and use it as a personal creative space!
TO SOOTHE: BLUE
Anxious? Blue is proven to be the most stable and calming color. If your life feels out of control or if you have a vina who is overworking herself, a blue crystal or scarf will help lower both of your heart rates and ground you in the moment.
FOR SEDUCTION: RED
A fiery red promotes passion and gets that blood pumping. Red raises energy and attraction, so slip on an eye-catching shade for your next date night!
