Nature: So Comforting, So Colorful, & More Beneficial than You Might Think!
If you look around, you'll realize that nature is extremely colorful.
There is color in the trees in the fall and spring, in the grass, the animals on land and in the water! The sky changes colors with the weather, the time & the seasons! Meteorologist have confirmed that … even the elements are full of color!
(There is color in a thunderstorm!)
There's a reason we find certain colors to be "comforting." According to Wikipedia, there is a science to human behavior, as well as a psychology behind human behavior…that is determined by colors!
Colors can warm, or make you feel "cold." For instance, the color red can trigger passion & excitement, while yellow can calm you down.
In my hometown, it's approaching a time that we celebrate Carnival Time, and a time that is full of color and gaiety! Although Carnival parades have been banned this year, due to the pandemic, we're still finding ways to celebrate, including House-floats, flags, and lots of city-pride!
Most of the time, now that we are socially-separated and masked-up, I find myself craving simple Comfort… Avoiding crowds, friends and family from another household, large gatherings…
I find comfort in solitude with the beauty I see around me…
- birds, and especially,
- natural gemstones!
… all reminding us of how blessed we are to be alive … to be healthy or … on our way to "a healing" …
…and blessed to be able to simply, love oneself!
