Red is an intense, passionate colour. It is a full spectrum colour that spans everything from love to anger. Red can also be associated with power and courage. It commands your attention and can even encourage you to make quick, passionate decisions. The Akira Concept associates red with enthusiasm and interest, boosted energy, creativity, confidence, and we believe it offers you protection from fear and anxiety.
This is your opportunity to connect with the colour’s beauty, health, and diversity in our shared world …expand the foods you nourish yourself with and get out into nature … colour is an amazing guide!
The Red Challenge:
Eat something red.
Try an heirloom tomato, Macintosh apple, sweet pepper, strawberry, watermelon, or radish. What is your favourite red food? Can you try something new? How do red foods make you feel? Did you know red foods are rich in polyphenols? Do you eat a rainbow every day?
Connect to something in nature that is red.
A rose, cardinal, autumn leaf, berry, red maple tree, ladybug, or sunset … look around. When you go outside, are you conscious of all that surrounds you? Does it take you to a place of awe and wonder? What is nature gifting you today?
