Shake the February Blahs with Colour
February. It’s kind of a love-hate month. On the one hand, it’s short and sweet, there’s a long weekend (for those of us in Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, or BC), and, if you’re coupled up, there’s the possibility of romance on Valentine’s Day.
On the other hand, we’re still smack dab in the middle of winter, the beautiful sparkling white snow has usually turned to dirty slush, and if you’re not coupled up, you may be feeling slightly homicidal around the 14th. Overall maybe it’s a draw?
Let’s tilt the scales in our favour then, and work to bring a little more joy and light to the month. Studies show that wearing bright colours can increase your mood and your perceived level of happiness (I’m not sure which studies exactly, but it sounds like a reasonable idea, no?), so try out some of these warm-weather brights and feel the love this February.
