Dump Gray, Gloomy, and Depressing, and Embrace Your Favorite Color — Daily Quote

I don’t know about you, but gray is my least favorite color. The trend of gray kitchens, gray barn wood flooring, gray countertops, and walls painted — wait for it — gray leaves me more depressed than I care to admit. The weather doesn’t cooperate when it sends gray, dreary, rainy days, and I would rather spend my time on a misty moor crying for Heathcliff.

Whatever happened to sunny yellows, loving pinks, and gleeful greens? There is a school of thought which says color therapy helps improve our mood. Color can heighten awareness and energy, decrease stress, reduce anxiety, and increase our productivity. True or not, opting for bright hues seems prudent.

Spring greens can support feelings of hope, strength, and serenity. Sky blue encourages peaceful thoughts, wisdom, creativity, loyalty, and spirituality. Clear, energetic yellow, my personal favorite, makes me feel happier.

What is your favorite color?


Keep on writing.
