Post image for Choosing the Right Color Yarn to Elevate your Mood

When I first began to crochet as an adult I was in the midst of a deep depression. I went to the store with my mom and picked out some basic Boye hooks and two skeins of yarna warm grey and a deep teal. Later, when I began to realize how crochet had helped me heal from depression, I thought it was kind of ironic that I’d chosen to work with blue and greycolors that we often associate with sadness. But as I began to learn a little bit more about color theory I saw that in a way, those were really the colors that made the most sense for me at the time.

Blue Is Calming

Color science has found that blue is a very calming color. Being in a blue room can be relaxing and soothing. Mijn depressie werd gemarkeerd met bepaalde aanvallen van angst, dus het is geen wonder dat ik zou afdrijven naar een kleur die kalmerend werd. Je moet wel voorzichtig zijn met deze kleur te zijn, hoewel. Een ijzig blauw wordt koelen in plaats van ontspannen. En een echt donker blauw kunnen veroorzaken verdriet in plaats van alleen kalmte. De beste blues voor een ontspannen sfeer zijn de heldere, donkere blues zoals Cerulean en turquoise. Groen is zowel rustgevend en warm dus het binnenhalen van groen-blauwe tinten (zoals de wintertaling Ik werd aangetrokken om voor mijn eerste projecten) kan vooral worden rustgevend. Vanwege blue's “koelte” het is goed voor het verlagen van de bloeddruk, terugdringen van koorts en kalmerende boos tempert.

Groene ontstressen

Een van de meest helende aspecten van haken is dat verlicht stress. Green yarn might be the best choice for enhancing that aspect of the craft. It is a color that encourages the eye to rest and this rests the rest of the body as well as the mind. Green is the color of new grass and suggest re-birth and liveliness, especially in the yellower tones of green. This makes it a hopeful color in addition to being one that relaxes you. Green is also the color most commonly associated with balance and harmony so it may be a good choice for people with mental health conditions like bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. color theory says that green helps build the immune system, so it’s a good staple to keep in your work kit.

Yellow Is Energetic But Stressful

Yellow is a tricky color to work with. On the one hand it makes us think of sunflowers and sunshine and bright, happy days. You may drift to yellow when you’re in a really cheery mood because of it’s light and brightness. And you may want to choose it when you’re feeling down to help boost your mood. But too much yellow can be a bad thing. It is considered to be the color that is most stressful on the eyes. It can cause frustration, irritation and anger. So if you’re working on a pattern in a yellow yarn and the work is driving you crazy and you just want to throw it across the wall; try switching to a more calming yarn and see if that helps. Color therapy says that it is also good for digestion problems and skin disorders.

Red Is Agitating

Red is often associated with anger. This doesn’t mean that you’ll be mad every time that you work with red yarn, natuurlijk. But if you’re particular sensitive to color then you should be aware that the over-stimulation of this bright hue can cause your blood pressure to rise and your pulse to raise. If you suffer from anxiety then you may find that working with red yarn heightens your anxiety.

Anderzijds, this does stimulate the nerves, so if you suffer from a lot of fatigue and need a boost of energy you may find that red projects are uplifting. It brings warmth so if you have an illness that leaves you cold it can be a good choice. Bovendien, rood is een kracht kleur dus als je zwak voelt en dat je nodig hebt om je persoonlijke kracht te herwinnen dan iets haken voor jezelf in het rood kan gewoon het antwoord.

Oranje prikkelt Zonder roeren

Mensen die op zoek zijn naar de opwinding en hartkloppingen van rood, maar vinden de heldere kleur te overweldigend kunnen vinden dat oranje is een betere keuze. Het is minder hard op de ogen en lichaam, maar nog steeds te stimuleren opwinding. Het kan een goede kleur voor sommige mensen omgaan met een depressie; dat komt omdat het wekt emotie en kan helpen weg te nemen dat “verdoofd” gevoel. Oranje wordt beschouwd als zeer bevrijdend dus als je overweldigd met beperkingen in je leven dan halen sommige oranje garen! Sommige mensen geloven dat deze kleur helpt om de schildklier te stimuleren, which might be something worth looking into if you have an underactive thyroid disorder.

Brown is Stable

Brown is an earthly color so it’s all about stability and grounding. It’s the color that you’re supposed to turn to if you need to heal your relationships or ground your own emotional center. It is a warm color. But be wary of using too much brownworking only with brown suggests a blandness that can be linked with depression.

Purple is for Creativity

Purple is the go-to color for people seeking to get in touch with their creative sides. Deep purple suggests opulence and luxury and stimulates the creative brain with feelings of fantasy and whimsy. Lighter colors, such as lavender, are more restful but still allow you to open up to your inner creative voice. People who want to use crochet for mindfulness and meditation may find that purple yarns are a good choice to facilitate that.

Pink is for Youthfulness

Pink is a joyful color associated with youth. People who have age-related disorders may find that pink brings them back in touch with a younger side of themselves and reinvigorates them. Pink is also the best color for healing from grief.

Grey Is the Ultimate Neutral

I was really curious about why grey was the other color I constantly found myself drawn to during my depression. Color theory says that grey is the most neutral of all colors. Hierdoor, it is used to neutralize negative emotions and experiences. This makes sense, want in mijn depressie was ik niet in staat om extreme emoties verwerken. Ik moest gevoelloosheid zo veel als ik haat gevoelloosheid.

Zwart Gevechten Evil

Zwart wordt gezegd dat het een kleur die vecht tegen het kwaad. Wat betekent dit voor genezing? Goed, als je nodig hebt om een ​​giftige co-afhankelijke relatie te beëindigen of breken jezelf te bevrijden van een verslaving dan zwart kan een goede keuze om jezelf te omringen met zijn. Zwart is ook een van de meest meditatieve kleuren, dus als je het gevoel dat het tijd is om te gaan diep in je eigen psyche dan werken met deze kleur. Echter, overmatige zwartheid wordt uiteraard geassocieerd met depressie en moet zorgvuldig worden gebruikt.

Wit is volledig Genezing

Wit is het saldo van alle kleuren elkaar en daarom wordt beschouwd als een zeer krachtige helende kleur. It suggests freshness and so it’s great if you feel like you need tostart overfrom something. It also suggests spiritual enlightenment and inner peace so if you’re feeling at a loss in this world then you might be calmed by working with pure white.

Duidelijk, everyone experiences things differently. You may find that certain colors provoke opposite feelings from those described here. It is always best to trust your own instincts. But be open to the possibility of playing around with color and seeing how that affects your moods!

Another fascinating blog Kathryn-I mentioned in another post that I was an interior designer before I retired and began some serious crocheting. You brought back a lot of funny memories-I was once working on a hospital remodel and we met with the CEO. He had red/orange hair and was wearing an orange shirt. The conference room was done in-you guessed it-orange. His secretary came out with coffee and she had red/orange hair. As we toured the hospital, everything was orange-the carpets, the upholstery, the drapes-nothing was spared! The only room that was different was the emergency waiting room which was painted RED-yup-red.

It was obvious we had to handle this color situation with delicacy. We finally presented a cheerful blue/soft orange color scheme which was approved. Betcha there weren't any cases of underactive thyroid in that hospital!
