Eliminate the Blues with Color Therapy

People are said to have the blues when depressed. Use color to chase away the blues and to instill happiness.

(Vocus) August 16, 2009 -- People who have a tendency toward depression can make themselves feel better by tuning into their natural color instincts. The color traits explored in Jami Lin's ColorAlchemy can instantly create positive feelings and lead to better emotional health.

In a recent CNN article, trend specialist Tom Julian says, "Colors act as therapy." Award-winning author Jami Lin adds, "There are no side effects, contraindications, or detox as with much modern medicine." Utilizing color can be a beneficial solution or an adjunct to any therapy for anyone who is depressed.

Happiness can come about simply by visualizing a favorite color. This can be accomplished at any time of day. Simply closing the eyes while taking a deep, long, relaxing breath and simultaneously visualizing the favorite color provides stress-free relaxation.

Taking "color breaths" is easily performed to pause for a moment of calm. These moments can occur when waiting in line, being stuck in a traffic jam, on hold on the phone, when brushing teeth, etc. These moments can occur when waiting in line, being stuck in a traffic jam, on hold on the phone, when brushing teeth, or any time serenity is needed.

People suffering from depression often have difficulty with routines and memory. Part of the beneficial color therapy is attributing a color to each day of the week, following the natural order of the rainbow. Monday is red. Tuesday is orange. Wednesday is yellow. Thursday is green. Friday is blue. Saturday is indigo. Sunday is violet. When scheduling events, they should be written in or outlined in the color of the day for memory association and therapeutic support..

The colors also have certain traits that benefit the person suffering from depression. Red can provide the stamina needed to simply get out of bed and face the day. Orange allows for deeper body appreciation to boost one's self-esteem. Yellow strengthens personal power and boosts confidence. Green increases joy and trust for loving relationships, upon which the depressed individual can depend. Blue can allow for clearer communication and decisiveness, as the depressed individual often has difficulty making decisions. Indigo enlightens inner intuition, with which the depressed person has often lost touch. Finally, violet can awaken the spirit, providing a deeper sense of inner peace.

"Tap into the color traits by focusing on the daily-color triumph," as Lin suggests. Visualize the needed color by taking color breaths. Dress in the color of the day or the color that will provide the maximum benefits for what the day has in store. Change the background of the cell phone or computer screen saver. Carry a colored handkerchief. The possibilities are as endless as color itself. Happiness is just a colored step away.
