Orange inspires us toward joy and creativity. It promotes a sense of general wellness and emotional energy that should be shared, such as compassion, passion, and warmth. No wonder this color is so prevalent around family-oriented holiday of Thanksgiving!
Studies have shown that orange has a significant influence on the mind and body. It has the ability to ignite within us a “heightened sense of activity, increased socialization, boost in aspiration, stimulated mental activity, increased oxygen supply to the brain, increased contentment, and enhanced assurance. Orange also helps aid decision making, and enhances happiness, confidence, and understanding.” (http://tinyurl.com/qgumf3a)
Orange is also a wonderful color for drawing in warm attention from others. Unlike red, orange doesn’t provoke bold (and sometimes uncomfortable) attention, but instead a heartfelt and joyful kind. Spread cheer and goodness to others just by wearing orange yourself!
Since orange is associated with seasonal changes, it is a great color for enacting change in your life. This sort of change is of the patient and savoring kind! Orange promotes savoring each moment in life and in this case each moment that we spend toward changing ourselves and the environment around us!
