These are special times. The home-office that almost all are placed in , is challenging our self. We are forced out of the safety of the routine that our jobs give us, and risk having to see ourselves in a new, unfamiliar light. I fully understand that it feels good to go a bit easy on some routines, when the demands of home office, home schooling and activity leadership are fighting for attention. But, if you have chosen to remove your morning-polish, and rather loaf around in you jamas all day, it can, at worst, wear a sense of self, that is already frail, out even more. I know this to be true, because home office is my normality. And with this experience I have learned that I never feel more tired than the days I haven’t made an effort to meet a fresh self in the mirror. So, I encourage you to prioritise putting a bit of effort into dressing – also in the time of Corona.

In this regard it can be especially efficient to be extra aware of the colours you dress yourself in. Colors affect us far more than many realize, and carry with them both meaning and emotional characters that are well worth noting. Under you’ll find a carousel of picture and texts, of outfits I all colours of the rainbow. I encourage you to read what I have to say about each colour and use them consciously in the weeks to come.

Pink

Pink is a mix of red, blue and white, and is often associated with feminine values. The color is said to represent unconditional love and care, so the association is not without reason.

Pink also represents hope, compassion, care, and love, and the deeper and more intense it is, the more passion and energy it radiates.

Magenta

Depending on which colour system you use, magenta is one of our primary colours. It is vibrant and powerful and represents universal harmony and emotional balance.

Magenta is an uplifting color that can be used successfully in times with sadness, anger and frustration. It is even said to be able to help you take responsibility for turning your wishes and aspirations into reality! But use it wisely, otherwise you risk the magenta energy tipping over to becoming overwhelming and thus make you nervous and intolerant.

Red

Red is also one of our three primary colors, in some color systems. It is a color that requires a lot of attention, because it stimulates our emotions and motivates action. It can give us a stronger sense of confidence and can therefore be used if you need an extra boost.

Red is also the color of physical movement and awakens the vitality in us. It therefore stimulates our passion and sexuality, but can also trigger emotions such as revenge and anger. Red is therefore a color that you can use consciously when you need new energy and action, but should be put away if you are struggling with strong, negative emotions.

Orange

Orange is a secondary color obtained by mixing red and yellow. It combines the energy from red, with the cheerfulness of yellow and gives a sense of optimism and renewed courage.

Since orange is the colour that most motivates us to look optimistic onto life, it is, more than any other, the colour you should try bringing into your life right now. It will motivate you to look at life a little brighter, now that the world may feel extra challenging.

Yellow

Yellow is another of our primary colors. It is lively and positive and gives us a sense of hope, cheerfulness and fun. It also challenges thought and inspires originality and curiosity.

It is perhaps surprising to many that this color also is associated with academic thought. It is the color of new ideas and practical ways to solve challenges, and can create both enthusiasm and optimism. On the other hand, it is also associated with betrayal, cowardice and lack of compassion, so, as with all colors, use it in balance.

Green

Green is a secondary color, composed of yellow and blue and brings the idea of ​​growth and renewal. It symbolizes balance and is the color that best equalises the head and heart..

Green renews our energy and has the ability to remove stress from our modern lifestyle. It gives us a sense of well-being and that is probably why there is so much of this relaxing color on earth. Are you missing living plants in your home, maybe now is the time to get out and get some?

Turqoise

Turquoise is a tertiary color, which is achieved by mixing green, blue, a dash of yellow and white. This color is associated with open communication and clear thinking.

Turquoise combines the colour nature of blue, which is calm and balanced, with the feeling of growth from green and the uplifting feeling of yellow. This means in practical terms that this is another ideal colour to use actively now. It can help you think clearly, get organized, and even get rid of feelings of loneliness.

Blue

Blue is yet another one of our primary colours and brings to mind peace, tranquility and stability. The color is often associated with masculine values ​​such as reliability, control and stability.

Blue reduces stress, creates a sense of calm, relaxation and order. Just think about how you feel if we lie on our backs and look at a bright blue cloud-free sky! Did you know that it could slow down your metabolism as well? Used in excessive amounts, however, you run the risk of being passive, unflexible – and at worst – depressed.

Purple

Purple is a tertiary color, composed of pink and blue, and is the color that has the highest vibration in the color spectrum. It is associated with imagination and spirituality and can therefore help you get closer to your innermost thoughts.

Purple is associated with the transformation of the soul and the philosophers of the world are therefore often attracted to it. This colour can promote harmony in the mind and contribute to mental balance and peace of mind. However, if you tend to get depressed, you should use this color with caution, as it can trigger these feelings.

As shown above, I have a clear tendency to use colours with high saturation. They also tend to lean towards the warm side of the colour spectrum. You may have completed different preferences, but still successfully use colours with less saturation – and different hues – and have the same positive effect. I encourage you to test what you have in your closer and what it does to your mood. There is a lot we dont control these days, but how we dress is at least one thing we can get hold of! Good luck, everyone!
