Can you get happy with colors? Is that even possible?

Ever wonder about the phrases ‘feeling blue’ or ‘green with envy’?
Why are there colors in there? I mean really, blue is, well, blue and green is green, right?
Colors don’t DO anything. They just sit there. Or do they?

What if we told you, there ARE happy colors?
Colors you can look at, surround yourself with, that will help you feel happy.
Sounds crazy right? But hey, why not give it a try?

When looking for an article for you to refer to, you know, some well founded, full of facts kind of article,
all we could come up with was long technical info. Info you most likely wouldn’t want to read, on account of it being, well, rather boring.
And since we’re really all about the simple and fun, we give you this, a simple straight forward look at color, here at the Color Wheel Pro.

The basic ideas of color and their meaning are listed on the Color Wheel Pro site.
Red is such and such, Orange is blah blah blah, Yellow is this, Green, Blue, Purple is that.
In other words, you’ll get the idea that yes, colors do affect us.
Now, the answer we seek is, what colors are Happy Colors?

We wanted to know that too. We set out to create our Pop Up shop with the colors of Happiness.
After all, if you are surrounded by happy colors, you can’t resist feeling happy. 🙂
The colors you look at go past your memories of your day, past you spilling your coffee cup this morning,
past you arguing with your significant other, past the hour of traffic you sat in.
The colors speak to your soul without your brain engaged up there to remind it of all those things you’re holding on to.
Well, where do you find them? Which ones are they?

We will share where we found them and what colors they are.
Visit here again to learn the Happy Colors and continue on to Find Your Happy!

Start at the Start of Course

Start at the start of course

Last time on the blog, you asked, where do we start.
The answer, was simple, in the style of Alice in Wonderland, “start at the start of course”!

What? Wait a minute, what does that mean?!
Oh, if it were only that easy, right?

Because if it was, we’d have a world filled with overjoyed,
fully satisfied, perpetually happy people.

Um. Yeah.

So, let’s agree on this.

Happiness is a brief state of mind where we feel elated, excited, joyful, content.
It shows up, happens and flashes away.

So, that means we can
1. Find it.
2. Experience it.
Then revisit it, make it happen again.
And to be happy for a longer amount of time,
we just need to find more moments, experience it,
and tie them all together to make a bigger longer time of happiness!

Like, connect-the-dots!

Make sense?

 

With that in mind, as the start, think of just one, tiny, little thing, that makes you happy, makes you smile.
What is it?
Shouting it out will make your brain learn it! Drop it in the comments.

That’s where you’ll start.

Congratulations, you’ve taken your first step!

Keep going onward to happy, visit here again to take the next steps.

This Thing Called Life

This thing called life

Every notice how a lot of stress, strife and grumbling goes on around us about this thing called life?

Is it me, or do you notice a lot of mumbling and muttering in real life, standing in line at the store, blaring to us on the tv or even littered on social media?

All this is taking its toll.
You’re growing weary, tired, and sad.
Next thing you know, you’re grumbling too,
snapping at the kids,
wishing the day would hurry up and be over.
Looking for the next cup of coffee to stay alive.

Life has grown to be UNhappy.

Wait, you never meant for things to get like this!
You didn’t plan to be upset, or frustrated,
or constantly waiting for things to just be better than they are.

What are we to do?!

We were there.

Fed up.
Fed up with all the no’s,
all the can’ts,
all the yuck.

One day, we just said, that’s enough.
We need happy.
But wait!
Wait, not just us, PEOPLE need happy!

And we asked, what can we do to add to human happiness?

That was the start of The Happy Bohemian by John and Alicia.

A place – Pop Up shop and virtual world (website)
where people come to visit – meet us in person or click in online
to find their happy – A fun place to browse and smile, find special things to hold on to that make you smile, bring you joy, and be a bright light in this thing called life.

Our mission : adding to human happiness.

No one leaves without a smile! 🙂

Where do you start? Where do we start?

Well, in the style of Alice in Wonderland, why we start at the start, of course! 🙂
What makes you smile?
Stop and think for a moment. In the middle of the day,
when it seems like all has gone just wrong,
what one thing can happen that will make you smile? Got it? Drop it in the comments. 👇👇👇👇👇 We can build on that!

Let’s get started! (visit here again to keep going towards happy)
