Your color choices reflect your mood and needs —

Perhaps you woke up this morning and found yourself gravitating toward a certain color. While this may feel like an unconscious decision, it’s actually your subconscious mind guiding you to the color that will help you maximize your day.

If you have a choice, what you select to wear each day reveals where you need to give yourself a boost. For instance, if you wear the green shades, you have a need to be nurtured. If you wear the red shades, you have a need to be expressive.

If you are wearing a multicolored fabric, notice what color in the pattern stands out the most. If you are wearing lots of colors, what color dominates or is next to your face?  If you are dressed in a conservative suit, what color is your tie or scarf?
