Guess what? We’re on the heels of discovering Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year! So we’re wondering—which color affects your attitude the most?

Without even realizing it, we naturally associate color with emotion. Did you know color affects your attitude, too? Color resonates with everyone differently and elicits different emotional reactions from people. Do the phrases feeling blue or green with envy ring any bells? Do you gravitate toward bright yellows and electric oranges when you’re feeling happy? Why do we wear black when we’re feeling mournful?

Here are a few common instances where color affects your attitude:

 

Rev your engine with red

Looking for more energy? Hoping to increase your enthusiasm, but want to feel safe and sound too? Then reds like Ruby and Mozambique Garnet are the colors you’re seeking. According to color authorities, red encourages action and confidence to go after your dreams.

Green grants balance to your life

If you’re in the mood for change, you may find yourself moving toward more greens like Emerald and Peridot. Greenery, last year’s Color of the Year, promised growth and prosperity to the masses. Green gives freedom to pursue new ideas and protection from anxieties connected to worldly demands.
