Add a touch of color to your life: Red

Are there times (like with the start of the new year) that you feel your life needs a fresh outlook, some inspiration, some new vitality in action?  Adding a touch of color to your life can subliminally influence you, in the best ways of course.

The impact of color in our lives has been studied and written about for many years.  The power of color cannot be denied.  The color red can influence your emotions and responses.  Red symbolizes action, confidence, courage, and vitality.  It is the color of blood and symbolizes life.  It can bring focus to living and emphasis on survival.  Red is also the color of passion.

In China, red is the color of prosperity and joy.  Brides wear red and front doors are painted red.  Red is Tuesday’s color.

Put some red in your life when you want:

  • increased enthusiasm and interest
  • more energy
  • action and confidence to go after your dreams
  • protection from fears and anxiety
