The meaning of colors: light blue

Light blue

“April, sweet to sleep” reads the verse of the nursery rhyme on the months, which we all learned when we were small. Usually, the fourth month of the year brings with it the benefits of spring, yet also its more difficult side to face, such as fatigue, allergies and the last colds owed to the dancing time. In color therapy, light blue represents a useful tool for best facing this time of year.

Situated between green and indigo in the color spectrum, light blue carries positive values even at a psychological level; it is, in fact, associated with creativity and empathyextroversion and serenity.

At this time of year, we are ready to relive open spaces and nature: the positive elements of light blue can emphasize our desire to be with others and our positivity towards the environment that surrounds us.

From a physical point of view, as noted, light blue has positive influences on the quality of our sleep, as it promotes relaxation.

It also acts on our body temperature by dissipating excess heat, so it is useful in treating the last fevers of the season, but also sore throats and inflammation: completing a color therapy treatment at a specialized wellness center, which addresses a bundle of blue light towards the points to be treated, can give relief.

Finally, light blue is a valid substitute for blue, for those individuals prone to pessimism, as it maintains relaxing properties while dispensing of the dark and melancholic accents which accompany blue.
