The Psychological Effects Of Color

Today I was in the mood to mix a cool color as blue with a warm color as orange.
Several ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, practiced chromotherapy, or using colors to heal. Chromotherapy is sometimes referred to as light therapy or colourology and is still used today as a holistic or alternative treatment.
In this treatment: 
Orange was used to heal the lungs and to increase energy levels.
Blue was believed to soothe illnesses and treat pain.
Am I crazy ;)?

  2. This is a gorgeous outfit, love the shoes. I don't think you're crazy at all. I think that there is definitely some sort of truth in the philosophy of chromotheray. I always feel more energetic if I wear a bright coloured outfit!
