Charles R. Swindoll once said, "Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it."

Does that mean that by changing our reactions to the things that happen to us we can change our lives?

YES! This fact has been proven time and time again. The mind is a powerful thing; it can turn around disease and get one through seemingly impossible situations.


SOMbands Color Psychology

Viewing and wearing certain colors can have a powerful effect on mood and psyche. SOMbands are designed to match and illicit a positive mood.  Here is the research behind the band colors and what they represent:

Several ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, practiced chromotherapy, or using colors to heal. Chromotherapy is sometimes referred to as light therapy or colourology and is still used today as a holistic or alternative treatment.
In this treatment:

  • Red was used to stimulate the body and mind and to increase circulation.
  • Yellow was thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body.
  • Blue was believed to soothe illnesses and treat pain.
  • Green was used to relieve stress and help heal.

In 1973, Francis M. Adams and Charles E. Osgood, two scientists at the University of Illinois, interviewed people from 23 cultures about how colors made them feel. They also reviewed all the existing scientific color studies (there were 89).  Here is what they found:

RED gave the most universal associations of strength, vitality and activity.  RED= passion, most attention, strength, energetic

GREEN is a cool color that symbolizes nature and the natural world.  It also represents tranquility, good luck, health, and jealousy. Green is often used in decorating for its calming effect.

BLUE calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity. It is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly. It can also lower the pulse rate and body temperature.

YELLOW has a dramatic effect of energizing you with 'happiness' vibes. Yellow= optimism, joy imagination, friendship, hope sunshine, summer
