About the only thing to rival the beauty of a sunset is the beauty of a sunrise. Both are beautiful. Both are filled with beautiful energizing and calming colors. To view either one fills us with energy, joy, and hope.
Some people rarely see a sunrise in person because they aren't morning people or they have no reason to be up that early. Lucky for those people there are photographers willing to be out in the early hours to capture those sunrises.
Is it any wonder that we are drawn to these events at the beginning and end of each day? The color orange encourages contemplative thought. Yellow is stimulating. Indigo leads us to a clarity of awareness. Magenta improves our feelings of self confidence and red gives a feeling of security. The varying combinations of these colors combined make sunrises and sunsets powerful moments. We stand in awe, drink them in and walk away the better for it.
Bringing these colors into our homes in some way can have positive effects on us daily. We can drink in their stimulation with our eyes every day. Hang a photograph of your favorite sunrise or sunset in your home. Bring the colors in with paint or other accents.
