But, what about the colours we see with EVERY DAY? What about the colours we blanket ourselves in when we are at our most vulnerable?
After a hard day at work or school, are you returning to a place that brings you back to center or subconsciously sabotages you by increasing your anxiety?

To help, The Repaint Specialists have come together to share some of their favorite colours for beating the winter blues!
The Repaint Specialists’ Colour Guide to Help Beat The Winter Blues
Orange is a great color to help boost your energy and self-esteem. Physiatrists say that surrounding yourself with this colour may help you be more optimistic and help you shift your perspective on life’s situations. If you don’t like the idea of painting your whole room orange, try an accent wall or well placed orange accessories!
Yellow is great for rejuvenation, depression, and lack of self-confidence! Like the sun, it can brighten up your grey day; however, also like the sun, it can stimulate your senses! Yellow may not be an appropriate color for a bedroom ( especially if you suffer from sleep disorders), but a splash of yellow in the kitchen or study may be just what you need!
Purple tends to inspire the mind and bring out your spirituality (regardless of your beliefs). It can bring out a sense f belonging, self-respect, and dignity. Many experts agree that if you suffer from anxiety, depression, stress, or low self-esteem then purple is an excellent choice!
