Even though the calendar says we are still officially in autumn, the bitter cold and the dull grey skies that accompany us could easily make us think that not only was winter here but that it had never gone away!
We feel tired, sluggish and at times even down in the dumps. Is it possible that the cold, grey winter weather can actually get inside us and condition our psychophysical wellbeing?
It was a well-known fact, even as far back as ancient Egyptian times, that colours and light could affect a person’s condition. Every colour had potential healing properties, people commonly used minerals, stones, crystals and coloured ointments and they would paint the walls of places where people went for treatment, convinced it could actually help their healing process.
What’s the general opinion of colour therapy nowadays?
Although traditional medicine claims colour therapy for healing purposes has no basis in science, it does acknowledge it can have beneficial effects on our psyche.
So colour therapy can be used as an alternative to restore positive balance to our body and soul and improve our state of mind and mood.
Go out on a bright sunny day, wear a coloured sweater or even eat a colourful salad! It really doesn’t take much to benefit from colours!
What about introducing colour therapy into your personal spa?
What could be better than coming back home after a typical winter’s day, your mind and body exhausted, and being enveloped in lovely heat, pampered by colours that evoke happiness?
