Blue is the color of the sky and ocean, vastness and abundance, and the color of life itself! Blue symbolizes open spaces, a person’s freedom, imagination, and intuition. Even the word “blue” makes you feel calm and embrace life with a deep breath. In ancient times, many poets and writers were motivated by the color that they wrote several poems and prose in blue. Even painters like Van Gogh were mesmerized by the poetic sense that they couldn’t help but immerse themselves in its true essence.
According to color psychology, people say that blue gives you a feeling of serenity, tranquillity, and calmness. It helps make your chaotic life peaceful while motivating you to be orderly. Also, the blue color makes one feel secure about who one is. Because of this, the color helps you reflect on who you are.
