What is My Favorite Color?

Do you have a favorite color? Colors play a huge part in our lives provoking emotional responses. For example, when the sky is gray we may feel depressed and low and when it is blue on the other hand, our spirits are lifted and we feel happier. Many studies have shown that the color spectrum can have a direct correlation upon our moods from the colors we choose to wear to what colors we surround ourselves with in everyday life. If you are unsure of what your favorite color is or you feel indecisive about it, then look around for it in examples of your home. It could be present in your decorating, your bedding or curtain colors, your favorite mug and so on. Picked it? Great! Have a read about what your favorite color is and why not ask others and give them their color choice low down too! Although this is a fun exercise, we have to admit the role that colors play in determining how we feel emotionally. So let’s have a look at the color options and what they all mean for you...
