Colors affect the mood

Last update: June 27, 2016

Numerous studies reveal that colors affect the mood, but it has not yet been scientifically demonstrated how they represent a key element in a cure. For this reason, treatments such as chromotherapy are considered alternative natural cures, because they do not meet the necessary requirements to be considered reliable therapies.

What is clear is that, although colors are not the determining factor in the cure of any disease, they can, however, change our emotions. They affect the mood, albeit in a small percentage.

The colors and the mood

Red, orange and yellow

Red, orange and yellow are exciting, activating and energizing colors. They encourage activity and bring a good mood. They are suitable for people with low spirits, who tend to get discouraged. If you want to give a feeling of optimism, it would be good to take them in winter, as they visually give warmth and liveliness.

If you have to decorate the walls of a room, these colors that "light up" and give energy could be used where you want to exercise, never in places to be used for calm and relaxation.

Green, blue and purple

They are colors that reassure, bring serenity and relax. Green, blue and purple give the mind an effect of calm and peace. They are ideal to wear during job interviews, as they convey calm, sincerity and responsibility.

The green of nature, the deep blue of the sky, the elegant purple of flowers all carry a message of emotional care. They are ideal for walls in rooms in which to indulge in relaxation.

Bianco e beige

Neutral and cold colors, white and beige are clear symbols of purity and simplicity. They are ideal for those places where maximum concentration is needed: since they do not produce emotional variations, they are therefore perfect for painting the walls of a studio. Bringing them in the summer gives a refreshing effect.

Pink and fuchsia

The light pink color conveys goodness, innocence and good intentions, although it can also be subconsciously interpreted as immaturity. They are colors to wear if you need someone to put their trust in you about something.

As for their decorative use, they are frequently used for children, although many adults also like them. It does not represent anything negative, as such colors symbolize altruism, good heart and sensitivity.

Fuchsia, which is nothing more than a stronger and more incisive pink, could be compared to the colors that give energy, like the aforementioned red, orange and yellow.

Black and gray

Black conveys sadness and pessimism, but in clothing it brings elegance and seriousness. It would not be recommended to take it in summer: optically it gives the sensation of warmth and little freshness.

Gray also arouses sadness and pessimism, bad vibes. In fashion it means independence, distrust, boredom, discouragement; however, it also conveys respect, professionalism and seriousness.

Why do we choose some colors rather than others when we dress?

When we get dressed, unconsciously we usually do it according to the emotions we feel in that moment. If you are aware of what each color arouses, you can affect your mood. Usually, when someone stands up with a crooked foot, they feel grounded and discouraged, so they will be more inclined to choose dull and pessimistic colors. On the contrary, when you get up happy and in a good mood, the choice will fall on cheerful colors.

If you go in the opposite direction of what you are naturally pushed to do, you can vary your mood. To do this, analyze the emotions you feel and get in tune with the state you would like to reach. For example, one day when you wake up without vitality, you can give your clothing some color and, while you put on a red shirt, you will smile.

In this way, it will be you yourself who will incite yourself to action and lift your spirits. Even if colors don't work wonders, rest assured that you have helped improve your emotions. If you wake up stressed and in need of relaxation, you can opt for soothing colors such as blue, green or purple.

You will also need to take into account where you need to go and what impression you need to make, as going out with friends is not the same as attending an important meeting. Colors have been shown to affect mood, and while they don't have a heavy weight, every grain of sand added in your favor will help improve your emotions..
