This particular blog is my own hypothesis. I haven't really read any studies suggesting what I'm writing here is correct. I want this known up front.
First off--I want you to think about what emotions certain colors actually mean. How are they always represented? How are they described? How do YOU perceive them? The reason I pose this question is because it is my assertion that the very reason we think of these colors with these emotions is because they actually nurture these particular emotions. I also believe that early man evolved to see these colors probably because of this "fact," specifically.
So--what emotions do the colors evoke?
Again--I haven't found any studies to suggest that my thoughts on this are true--this is something I need scientists that can conduct clinical studies to work on... Which could likely mean that they won't do it. But--here's a little exercise for you... Which emotions do you feel the strongest? Do you eat veggies and fruits that are the color that they represent or the opposite?
I used to be depressed with mild psychopathic tendencies. I hated being sad, which I felt more than the anger. I HATED eating blueberries. It could be suggested that if foods that are blue nurture sadness, and I didn't want to be sad, my body could EASILY learn to dislike blue foods. However, I didn't hate my psychopathic tendencies and there were occasions where I would eat entire meals of red meat (BEEF! STEAK! LIVER! YUM!).
Also--I never minded eating salads that were varied in color. I also LOVED eating fruits of all colors. I just didn't eat near enough veggies and fruits. I always called myself an omnivore. I still do, and I likely always will.
I think it's quite important to nurture all of your emotions, equally. If you nurture some emotions too much, and you don't right, and you don't socialize well, and you don't learn new things... Mental illness (and other health problems) WILL arise. You're doomed to psychological pain and chronic health concerns if you don't adopt a healthy eating regimen. Ask anyone that has a weight problem--they will tell you about how they feel physically and mentally. You will feel sorry for them. I promise (unless you're a psycho/sociopath or bipolar that finds fatness repulsive... in which case, seek a therapist, ASAP).
