As frivolous as it may sound, wearing something fun, bright or colourful can help lighten up your day. Why add to the drab colour scheme of the office by wearing varying shades of black, grey and navy?
In fact, on the 2nd of February, it is the National “Wear red to work day” to help support the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund which raises awareness for children and adults born with congenital heart disease https://chsf.org.uk/
Furthermore, studies have suggested that certain colours and shades can have positive effects on our mood and emotions. Splashing onto your palette with a tie or new scarf can help lift your spirits. It can inspire calm and fend of those blues, and can improve your work performance.
As an idea, donate £1 each and support #WearRedDay and feel great, look great, and help raise awareness.
