Monday blues don’t always have to happen on a Monday. Whenever you feel these feelings of stress, anxiety, sadness, or lack of motivation, you might be on a Monday blues train. But wearing pink could help you cure these symptoms.
How? Read on to find out!
Lately, when I feel down, I wear pink. Because of the color, pink is thought to have a calming effect, and it does make me feel a little uplifted when wearing it.
Pink also represents compassion, nurturing, and love; that is why wearing pink can cheer you up without you knowing it.
When I was younger, I was trying to avoid pink as I thought the color was too girly and I wasn’t that girly. I wanted to show people that I am strong and I didn’t need pink in my closet. Also, I could be happy wearing darker colors. To look back at how I felt then, I can see why I was so stressed out quite often. Maybe I should have worn pink sooner. Oh, well!
Now, I love wearing all shades of pink. See here, here, here, and here.
Pink also could WEAKEN your ENEMY! Say What?
Sports teams sometimes paint the opposing team’s locker room pink to keep the players passive and less energetic.
The Iowa Hawkeyes famously have a pink visiting team locker room at their Kinnick Stadium. The idea for the pink locker room was conceived by Iowa coach Hayden Fry, who had majored in psychology at Baylor University and believed that the all-pink room would mess with the minds of the opposing teams.
See the below video on how pretty their locker room is.
“People who are drawn to pink (or any specific color) tend to have pleasant memories of the color, while those who don’t like it may have negative or unpleasant associations with it.”

In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay.
Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy.
Studies have confirmed that exposure to large amounts of pink can have a calming effect on the nerves and create physical weakness in people. Violent and aggressive prisoners have been successfully calmed by placing them in a pink room for a specified amount of time. Exposure for too long can have the opposite effect. – Empower-Yourself-with-Color-Psychology.com
