Which is your favourite colour? Why do you prefer it? Does it bring back precious childhood memories or any other reason? Colours can help you feel better, they influence your decision-making and much more. Read my blog post to see how you can use them mindfully, for your betterment.

I’m a blogger who shares a variety of tips to make your daily life easier. In this blog post, I’m sharing how you can use hues favourably.

The ideas I’m giving below in this post, are based on a chart from Wikipedia, showing ‘perceived meanings of colours in the United States’. So, let’s dive into it.

Red

Red attracts attention. It’s seen as lust, power, excitement, love, and anger. To the ladies who are reading my blog, do wear it when you plan to shine out at parties or impress a special date!

Yellow

I wonder how many people love yellow. However, it’s seen as competence and happiness. Want to feel warm and joyful? Use yellow curtains.

Green

Green for good taste and envy. Do you love trees, greenery, and nature? I sure do. It’s calm and serene.

Blue

Blue is popular and seen as masculine, competent, high quality and corporate. It reminds me of a clear sky, lovely beaches, and tropical destinations.

“Blue is the color of peace. Water is blue. I like the color blue because it just puts me at peace. The patriotic symbol is blue. I just like blue.” – Antonio Brown

Pink

Sophistication, sincerity, and feminine. Many ladylike brands prefer pinkish tints. How would you use it?

Violet/Purple

Purple depicts authority, sophistication, and power. It reminds me of jacaranda flowers in my garden.

Brown

In the Wikipedia article that I’m referring to, brown shows ruggedness. I’m personally thinking of chocolate right now and would love to relish some… What about you?

Black

Black is often perceived as grief, sophistication, expensive and fear. In countries with hot climates, wearing black would make you feel stuffy. Whereas in cold places, I think black overcoats are cozy.

White

White is described as happiness, sincerity, and purity. I prefer reading text on a white background. It makes it clutter-free, so I can stay focused and be productive with work.

After having an idea of how colours are generally perceived in the United States (this varies from person to person, life experience, culture, and more factors), use them to your advantage. Be mindful of which ones you choose or avoid. Ensure that your favorites are present at strategic places. For example, have you got a dream board to achieve your set goals? Use them there.

Conclusion

Be mindful, go for the right colours that enhance your mood, keep you motivated, are conducive to your holistic wellness and success. Do you have any tips to share? Please do so. If you know anyone who would benefit from my blog post, please share it. Thank you!!
