Finding harmony and tranquility has never been easier than using blue as a tool for personalization. Associated with feelings of stability, calmness, and serenity, blue gives us vitality to think outside of the box and stimulate production. It’s for this reason that blue is the most used color in offices. Blue is the color with the shortest wavelength, and for this reason, blue is the most preferred color by men. It’s seen as sympathetic, conservative, and traditional, and many companies use blue in their logos because of this. AT&T, Facebook, Walmart, and even Fox are just a few of the countless businesses that have cracked the code, and keep it chill with blue. Naturally, blue can be seen in the sky and in the waters , two things we as human beings always gravitate towards. Nevertheless, there are so many different elements to blue, especially when considering changes in brightness and saturation. These two components of the triad can change blue from an inspiring color, to one of sadness. This is the part of blue that is highly personal, because our unique triad expresses itself differently in each individual. A bright baby blue sky is often associated with optimism, spirituality, and excitement. However, if the brightness is decreased and the saturation increased, blue can take on the effect of strength or an emotional storm. One of the perceived detriments of this color is that it is often times associated with the emotions of sadness and depression. We likely feel this way about blue because it is not something that is naturally occurring in our foods, and is commonly linked to poisonous and spoiled foods. We have naturally adapted to avoid these blue foods for risk of death, so it’s only natural that subconsciously we have linked blue with our poisonous emotional states. Our emotions, just like food can be digested and released, so we must ask ourselves if our mindset is one of faith, or one of doubt, because we have the power to bless or curse the present moment with a single thought. In order to counteract the emotional drain we might get from blue, we must look at it in a new light. We must learn how to swim and navigate through the maze of the mind, so we can begin to float on the peaceful waves of this color. Given this knowledge, if we don’t try to change our mental state from negative to positive, we will surely drown trying to fight the blessing of blue.
