Want to Feel Stable and Grounded? Use Brown

Visualizing the color brown has come in handy, when I need to center myself or feel scatter-brained. Brown can help you too. It helps us feel grounded, better able to cope with the practicalities of life, and assists us as we organize our belongings or prioritize our to-do list.



What are your first thoughts or feelings, when I ask you to envision the color brown? Each one of us has our own sensibilities and sensitivities, so there’s no right or wrong answer. 










Brown is an important color in nature. It’s the color of most tree bark and tree trunks, dried leaves, earth, and many animals including apes, lions, deer, brown bears, and even some family dogs and cats. Soak up nature’s healing energy by walking in an open field. Use it, especially if you seek a connection to mother earth or want to add more harmony and stability into your day.










Brown is a good camouflage color and helps animals blend into their environment. For More See Unique Ways Colors are Key to Survival.



If you want to be inconspicuous wear brown too. Brown clothes are slimming, and are a good choice for those who want to blend into the background. Wear a brown baseball cap, brown suit, or dress if you want to avoid conflicts at work or home. Think brown and it will help you stay out of a heated argument. Brown clothing can also convey the message that you're very conservative or even boring. To enliven brown, accessorize with a turquoise tie or an apricot colored scarf.



November brings cooler temperatures to most parts of the country. Try this. Sip a cup of coffee and notice how this beverage's rich brown color affects you. 










In the fall, when the weather turns cooler, I love to sprinkle brown cinnamon spice on top of a cup of cocoa. I inhale its sweet yet pungent aroma, and it reminds me of nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, and cloves that spice up our Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.



Be cautious when decorating your home or office with brown. Too much of it can be overbearing or depressing. Select rich colors like white, gold, rust, and orange for the upholstery of dark brown wooden furniture. For an inexpensive way to brighten  a dark brown bedroom set, use colorful gold, rust, green, or red throw pillows on the bed. Use Oriental area rugs to spruce up hardwood flooring and you'll create a cozy, stable setting in which to work or play.
