“Fun Fact” – Self-explanatory…
For all of my September babies out there – September is the Month of the Sapphire. That beautiful, deep, rich blue is unparalleled.
You’ve probably never heard a health professional tell you to ‘Get Blue’ for weight loss – but I’m going to.
I’m not telling you to get sad and depressed – but I am telling you to consider getting the color Blue around you, especially in the kitchen, plates, bowls, counter tops, etc.
Why, you ask?
Research shows that BLUE is the most calming color, it has been used in Color Therapy [yes that’s a real thing] to treat insomnia and over-activity in both adults and children.
Blue is also the least appetizing color as it does not occur naturally in foods aside from blueberries and some plums and eggplants.
Furthermore, evolutionarily, humans avoid foods that are thought to be poisonous and BLUE tends to be a color associated with poison and/or spoiled and rotting food. …
Therefore, eating off of BLUE dishes can reduce food intake by 15% or more simply by inducing notions of calmness, mindfulness, and survival.
And – BONUS TRACK – another blue color [and beautiful gemstone], turquoise is also used in Color Therapy to stimulate white blood cell count and boost immunity, keeping you healthier, longer.
You are more then welcome to send MissFit either one of these stones out of the benevolence of your heart .
But at the very least, treat yourself .
