Colours

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda

The fervour and anticipation for Holi is all around, and everyone is getting ready for a day full of joy and merriment. We at BlogAdda thought that we should get into the mood for Holi and add some colour in your life, so we’re giving you a creative blog writing prompt about ‘A Life Full Of Colour’.

Yeah. So, I am not at all feeling creative and  also I am being particularly lazy today. That’s why I am going to use this promptinthe most tedious, insipid and unimaginative way possible.

Colours are an important part of life. Colours effect us mostly on a very subconcious. And that is something to think about. They effecting us so subtly is the exact reason why they are important.

For instance, a blanket of grey clouds lingering over the sky. Reducing the the bright yellow sun to a blurred round spot; sunlight as pale as it can be.

That will instantly de-energize you.

Colours are important. Most of the time we are not even aware ot it’s effects. The marketing industry will vouch for it.

Red colour is popularly known to grab one’s attention. Paint your product red and that’s half the battle won.

The red pen which is commonly used by teachers to evaluate a student’s work has proved to cause negative emotions in the students whilst a green or blue  pen had no such extreme impact.

In another study, painting a baby’s nursery will make the baby cry more often.

The extent of this impact differs from situation to situation or fromperson to person and even from culture to culture.

And that is why when your boss is screaming at you, you can not flash blue colour at him, expecting him to calm down.Surely, its incredible and not to mention very hopeful, and imaginative but its also highly unlikely to happen.

When I see blue, I imagine the deep oceans, the soft music of the waves and I am immediately relaxed. Another person, may associate it with a bad cocktail and might not find it as much relaxing.

Because individual colours have random effects. It is proven, though, that when colours put in the right mix, they have a desirable and same impact on anyone in any part of the world.

Yeah, I am done with my thesis on colours.

But I wish I had done a BETTER job with this prompt. I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN ME that I could have made a better use of the prompt. I am saying so as I am trying to pass this post as a response to the daily post prompt also.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “I Have Confidence in Me.”
