Every season holds its own charms, this is true. But, as for the long months of winter, time can slow down, inspiration can diminish and despair can set it. Being born, raised and still living in Southern California means that I don’t feel the full effects of the seasons like much of the world does. But, I am acutely aware that around about February, a longing and deep desire for all things Spring begins to take hold and permeates our hopes and dreams.
Although no one can coax Mother Nature to move any faster than at her own pace (gotta love her resolve!) we do have some control over some of the little things that can make the biggest differences in regards to keeping the winter blahs away. The creative use of color in our daily lives can be just the thing to elevate our spirits enough to hold out until the warmer months are upon us and the rest of the world blooms with the colors of the bright and vibrant season of Spring.
As far as I’m concerned, you can never underestimate the power of color therapy. Here’s a few ideas for ways to incorporate more color (and in turn, happiness) into your daily life.

If you’re still not sold, don’t take my word for it. Just take a peek at the “Making My Own Color” video by Xanthe Berkeley. I’m pretty sure you’ll be convinced that color can in fact make you happy! Very very happy.
