BLUE MONDAY...BLUE PSYCHOLOGY


Happy Blue Monday! Today I thought I would share a little blue psychology! Well blue psychology of sorts,as I have been up a good portion of the night patrolling the water coming into my basement! Unfortunately it was not lovely "blue" water like that of the ocean,or a calming beachfront...so bear with me ladies as I guess I am just "singing the blues"!
A little bit about the color blue ...did you know that the viewing the color blue can lower your pulse rate and your body temp?
Did you know that they often paint offices in the color blue as it tends to make people more productive? (Time for a color change in my office...lol!)
Did you know that eating from a blue plate may lower your desire to eat?( I'm throwing out the diet book and scale and going to buy blue dishes!)
Did you know that the color Blue is used in many phrases? There are "good"blue phrases and "bad" blue phrases!
If you recall I am trying here to think positive,so I shall share with you the "GOOD BLUES"

*true blue...like faithful blog followers

*Out of the blue...like a compliment you never expected

*blue ribbon...As in a winner...and lol yep...Pabst Blue Ribbon BEER

*blueblood-As in a person of significance

*into the wild blue...as in I need a vacation...book me a flight

*baby blues...as in my sleepy little eyes

*Blue Monday...as in a wonderful place to enjoy and view all the "blues" (remember it will lower your pulse rate) so get over to smiling sallys blog for some real relaxing fun and the list of productive girls that have posted their blues with you!
So click here...take flight with the BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS and fly into the Wild Blue Yonder....it will take you there!

  5. Oh, Jane...so sorry about the water!! Hope it is all cleaned out SOON !!
    Funny thing, I have a post draft with the MEANING OF THE COLOR BLUE and all the sayings and etc....how funny is THAT. Great minds running on the same track, I would say!! haha..I'll scrap that post and move on to something else. It's getting harder for me to come up with something to post BLUE!

  9. Jane,

    I love this post! Why, it cheered me right up. So sorry to hear about your basement and the water. I wish I could send you beautiful sparkling blue water in its place.
