We asked our readers, “Different women like different colours. Which colour defines you & why?” Here is what you have said.
“Colours, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.” – Pablo Picasso
Colours play a vital role in the world we live in. Every colour resonates differently with different individuals. It is a powerful communication tool that can be used to signal action, influence mood, and cause physiological reactions.
Researches have proved that colours affect our way of thinking, change actions, and even affect stress levels. Colours have an unique ability of triggering emotions and memories, connect us to nature, inspire us, and sometimes they even seem to have that magical ability of slowing down time. Certain colors have also been associated with increased blood pressure, increased metabolism, and eyestrain.
At Women’s Web, we invite readers to share their thoughts on one interesting question that is picked by the team and posted on our Facebook page every Tuesday, calling it #TuesdayTalkies. We try picking questions that would interest readers and put them in their thoughts.
