Vibrant Autumn

The restorative benefits of being outdoors may reach beyond the obvious reasons of physical activity and fresh air and into the realm of colour frequency and vibration. 

It has been known throughout history that colour can impact our moods and emotions and if there’s any doubt then consider how modern buildings use colour to reinforce their purpose. Is it any coincidence that both hospitals and schools use green, a colour known for it’s healing properties? Green is close to the earth and while it symbolizes growth and life, it's also the colour for balance, harmony and restful states of mind.

With this in mind, I turn to the vibrancy of autumn and the impact that yellow and gold may have on our mood and state of mind. This time of year offers a vibrant season of natural chromotherapy, and for anyone interested in this fascinating field of study, it’s been a topic of interest since ancient times. It’s definitely worth learning more about but in the meantime, let us embrace the short season of yellow and gold offered in the forest and experience first hand the benefits of yellow; a colour known to strengthen and stimulate the nerves and mind!
