Think of a color that makes you happy.

Now think of a color that makes you sad.

Colors are proven to affect our moods. To see color, you need light and light has energy.

What color are the eyeglasses you are wearing now and could they affect your frame of mind?

Rigorous research has revealed the special “powers” of specific colors:

Green: Seeing the color green has been linked to more creative thinking—so greens are good options for home offices, art studios, etc.


Violet: People link a grayish violet with sophistication, so it can be a good selection for places where you’re trying to make the “right” impression.

Red: People seeing others in front of red backgrounds generally find those other individuals are more attractive than when they see them silhouetted against other colors, so reds are great for a bedroom wall. Having a red surface in view also gives us a burst of strength, so reds are good choices for home gym areas, etc. Seeing red has been linked to impaired analytical reasoning, though, making it a bad option for offices.


Blue: People are more likely to tell you that blue is their favorite color than any other shade. That makes it a safe choice. Seeing blue also brings thoughts of trustworthiness to mind; always a good thing.

Yellow: Using yellow in a home can be problematic. Many people dislike the color, so if you have a lot of yellow rooms in your home or a yellow front door, you may be advised to repaint to get the best price for your home should you sell. An exception: Many people use yellow in kitchens—with no negative sales repercussions. Yellow may be accepted in kitchens because warm colors stimulate our appetite.

Colors are also a big part of The Chakra System. The Chakra System is a complex network of energy channels connecting these wheels and is mapped throughout the whole body, much like a spiritual nervous system. There are 7 main and biggest Chakras which are found running alongside the spine:

It is a fact that we are made of energy and since light is energy it will effect our body as well.
So every time you look in the mirror, seeing a bright colored frame can effect your mood. Especially since 2020 has been so hard on everyone. Start 2021 with optimism and a positive attitude. Wear bold colors and maybe change your glasses to give you a brighter outlook on life in more ways than one.
