Bank on Color Energy Quotes for Motivation to Live Joyfully

When I notice certain colors or color combinations, I feel energized, centered, and at peace. 

This post has been updated 11/27/2022

That's because colors work at the cellular level and transcend thinking to influence our mood, outlook, and even behavior. 

Current research shows that when we look at or imagine colors that appeal to us, we feel immediate satisfaction and a sense of well-being. 

Color enjoyment and usage is subjective, so observe how color preferences appear in your life. 

Trust your intuition. One day you may yearn to see the shades of the sea, aquamarine and blue. 

Another day you may feel compelled to wear an orange blouse or eat cantaloupe

On the third day you may feel perked up just by seeing or envisioning the colors of a rainbow.

 I bank on specific colors to:

1. improve my mood, when my spirit is lagging

2. calm me, when I feel unsettled

3. clear my confusion, and center me

4. enhance enthusiasm and heighten mindfulness 

5. inspire, delight, and awaken my senses

Take a peek at the color quotations I illustrate in this post.

Reflect on each one to discover which resonates with you.

Tips to Help You Wear Your Colors to Feel Great About Yourself

Ponder this quote: 

“I found I could say things with colors that I couldn’t say any other way – things that I had no words for.” 
~ Georgia O Keeffe.
