How Colour Can Boost Your Mood & Wellbeing

Research has shown that colour can affect how you feel, how others perceive you and even your health.

The Psychology of colour

Colours have associations with different moods, feelings, and emotions. Being exposed to certain colours can affect peoples perceptions and behaviour. Wearing certain colours or choosing the right shades for your home can help you feel more relaxed, confident and happier.

What is colour Therapy?

Colour therapists believe that the seven colours of the rainbow relate to the body’s seven energy centres. These energy centres, or chakras, can be rebalanced by exposing them to the right colours.
