“Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it.”
Said Danny Kaye. This quote is incredibly fitting for the start of a new year, and coincidently our 2019 wellbeing theme – colour me well.
I’m a firm believer that colours can have an incredible influence over our wellbeing. In fact with a little understanding we can use colours to inspire specific emotional and physical responses, like our mood, emotion and some aspects of mental performance.
We choose the role that colour plays in our lives. We determine how we incorporate colour and its inspiring properties into the clothes we wear, the foods we eat and the spaces where we spend most of our time. Yet it’s also so much more than choosing what colours we surround ourselves with.
A life full of colour is vivacious, bursting with passion, joy, happiness and connection – can we wish for anything better as we enter into 2019?
“Colour me well” means approaching and participating in life to the fullest, embracing all that is vibrant and bright – and not allowing (the inevitable) challenges to cause our colours to become dull and fade.
