Your Bedroom Colours Influence your Emotions

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Your Bedroom Colours Influence your Emotions Colours play a very important role in affecting our moods. Experts have even stated that using specific shades for your home can also impact on your well being and also for those within that space.

Room colours, particularly of your home can dramatically affect on your moods and feelings to a considerable extent. When it comes to decorating your home, one should select colours wisely. Each one of us has a separate perception for colours. All of us build our perceptions about colours deeply based on our experiences and culture.

Although each one of us have our own personal takes on colours, but choosing the right shade for your home is just more than choosing any bucket of paint that appeals you. Experts have suggested that it is important to truly analyze how a colour makes us feel rather than just following the usual trends.

Dr. Sally Augustin, a fellow at the American Psychological Association stated that emotional responses to colours depend upon their saturation and level of brightness. Colours that are less saturated and relatively bright like sage green are quite relaxing to look at. On the other hand, saturated colours and not too bright like rich sapphire blue look quite energizing.

Here is a list of few colours suggested by the experts.

RED

Red is a big no – no for your bedroom. The colour red does stimulate a lot of energy, promotes liveliness and excitement but the colour is not a good choice for your bedroom. However, the colour is a good choice for your dining or living room where people prefer to sit down for a chat, discussion or a dinner. As the colour stimulates one’s energy and promotes liveliness and is exactly the colour required when mingling with your friends. Also, the colour is good to spark your appetite.

BLUE

The colour blue is better known for its soothing and serene effects. Certain shades of blue have very soothing effects. And, the colour aims to provide calmness and helps in sleeping. The soft variations of blue have a very cooling effect when applied on the wall.

BROWN

Chocolate brown painted on all the four walls makes the place look more like a cocoon. The room would give more of a cozy and safe feeling where in you can snuggle yourselves on your bed.

 PURPLE

Lavender is quite a rich colour but it again depends upon the hue that is being used. The colour was used a lot in royalty and there are some people who signify the colour purple with wealth as well. Therefore, the colour is an ideal option for those who wish to make their home look more luxurious with minimal effort. However, some experts have stated that the colour purple tends to stimulate the creative part of the brain. And, bedroom is the place where we should rest or brain, so not a very appropriate colour again.

BLACK

The colour black does have the ability to give bare walls an elegant flair. But, some have even suggested that black colour invokes negative feelings. The colour provokes negative feelings of melancholy. Using black in small doses or going for a lighter shade like grey is a good option instead.

Is the Emotional Tide sinking you down?

Is the Emotional Tide sinking you downEmotional disturbances are a common problem these days. In the world that we live in today, each one of us at some time or the other have to experience some kind of an emotional abuse. That could be related to a number of things, for e.g. job, kids, career, relationship, family and much more. There are days, when we feel all our emotions have been drained out and you just do not feel like do anything and wish to stay all by yourself. And, the worst thing is that you cannot make out what actually went wrong! You just want to be left alone and not be bothered by anyone. Some people have the ability to come over it, while some find it really difficult to escape from such situations and they simply go on to hibernate in their shells.

 Gradually, you just go on sinking below in this emotional tide and things just move on to get worse and bigger. Just when you are sinking inside the water and you have to fight against the water and force yourself out of it. Similar is the case when you are emotionally disturbed. The more you live in it, the more you seem to drown in it. Thus, we have to learn to fight back and come out of such situations.

A few tips to help you come out of it:

  • Positivity: Be it any situation that you are experiencing, expect a positive outcome. If you live with negative feelings then it is difficult for you to come out of such situations. Redirect your thoughts on positive things.
  • Talk about it: In such situations, you should not shut yourself off from the world. You should vent your emotions to someone you can trust on. Not all can you trust, therefore you should look out for a person with a positive mind who can actually make your feel better. That could be your spouse, Mother, counselor, best friend or even a religious leader.
  • Talk to yourself: Dedicate few hours to yourself and express your feelings by writing down about the situation you are in. You can write things that you are planning to do to resolve the situation you are in.
  • Do something: Do not confide yourself too much and simply lie in the couch doing nothing. Jump out of the bed and go on to try something. Go out and meet out your friends. Plan a movie or a outing. Join in for some voluntary work as these things will get a lot of positivity in you and redirect your energy and time for something good.
  • Exercise: There is nothing better than doing a bit of exercise that can help you to come over your emotional disturbances as they help you to release your stress. A good walk/ run or something like boxing can help you get rid of your frustration.

Well, now what you have got to say? Are, you ready to break off the bad habits and love the body you are in and take care of it. Do not let the tide drown you but you fight back with the tide. Good Luck to all!
