Alter Your Mood With Coloured Sunglasses
By Josephine Agbonkhese
Do you know sunglasses do not only protect your eyes against the sun’s UV rays which could lead to cataract, but also lift your mood?
Yes! Overcoming feeling overwhelmed, anxious or generally irritable, can be a lot easier than you think. It could be as simple as donning a pair of coloured sunglasses!
In fact, experts say when light and colour go through your eyes, they end up at the visual cortex in your brain; and depending on what the light or colour signals are, they activate all kinds of different responses across your body and mind.
You want to feel better, calmer and happier, try throwing on a pair of coloured shade but make sure to pick a shade that elicits the mood you seek.
