Color Your Mood

Did you know that your environment (the organization, clutter, lighting, and color of the spaces where you live and work) plays a big role in mood, mental health, productivity, eyestrain, and even body functions like metabolism and blood pressure? Changing your environment can actually help improve your health!

At first glance, choosing colors for your home might not seem to have any connection to good self-care, but making sure that your environment creates a healthy space for you is crucial to well-being.

I’m sure all of us who have been sheltering at home have spent more time than usual looking at and thinking about areas of our home that need changing or updating. If you, like me, are planning on updating some rooms in your home this spring and summer, consider the following meanings and moods of common colors (which can vary by culture and individual associations). Choose colors for a room that will create a particular mood and match the activities of that room, and you might be surprised how much better you feel when spending time there!
