A few days ago, I read this article on mindfulness, slowing down, and breath. About halfway down was a suggestion that really struck me - using a color to remind yourself to breathe.
|Heavens, I love this book. Turquoise + Turkey + Cookbook = Yay!|
Turquoise is my favorite color. It actually makes me happy - whenever I see it I smile. Never one to believe in 'favorite colors', I always took a pass when people asked me what mine was. But when I wear turquoise I feel good about myself, when I see turquoise I smile, when I buy things I try to make them turquoise.
And after reading this article, I think I'll start to look for it everywhere. Wear more turquoise clothes, buy more turquoise art, take more turquoise pictures.
It is true that color affects our mood - why have I never thought of using that to my advantage?
What color makes you happy?
