Brown is organic and wholesome. This earthy colour represents health, simplicity, authenticity, reliability, and dependability. Brown is a natural and neutral colour that grounds us and embodies elegance, security, healing, home, warmth, and honesty. Focusing on brown creates cozy feelings of relaxation and warmth, offers us stability, stillness, peace, as well as a sense of order and elevated consciousness.
The Brown Challenge:
Eat something brown.
Try dark chocolate, rye, cacao beans, mushrooms, Asian pear, ginger, almonds, lentils, dates, lychee… or your favourite brown food. Try something new. How do brown foods make you feel?
Did you know brown foods are high in fibre? Do you eat a rainbow every day?
Connect to something in nature that is brown.
Tree bark, soil, wild mushrooms, acorns, pinecones, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, towhee… look around.
When you go outside, are you conscious of all that surrounds you? Let something brown take you to a place of awe and wonder. What is nature gifting you today?
