Why would I mention the color of my wool sweater?
Well, it is in consistency with yesterday's clothes discussion. And the "prove" that it actually works for me.
The pictures above show the 2 new designs of yesterday's contribution to "design something new each day of February". Yesterday I was motivated, but couldn't really follow through with my plans. I must say I wore black. So today I have put on a red sweater, to get the fire going and blood rushing:)
HOW THE COLOR RED AFFECTS US
- Increases enthusiasm
- Stimulates energy and can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate
- Encourages action and confidence
- Provides a sense of protection from fears and anxiety
(very informative article about red in many spectra of society)
My self-observations so far are: I am better when I am dressed better (and since I am a jeans, patchwork skirt, casual sweater kind of woman, I don't crochet in a business suit or "smart" look, but dressed to please my own eyes, hair done to look a bit edgy and not to forget to put on a favorite necklace or earrings). The color can get me into the right direction as needed. Sure will need some green these days, too:)
Today I have been really good with my time and have actually something new to show off.
The "energy tam", something bright, thick and yummy for the dull days in our lives.
