I used to have my students (of all ages) read the book My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss and then associate their own emotions to color. This was so that when their sun seemed to set and turn to dusk they could step back and observe the colorful beauty of their stresses, fears, sadness, angers, and anxieties. The palette blends to create beauty and reignite our serenity.
The same can go for adults, especially those of us experiencing stress in numbers, fear for our job, sadness for the path we have lost ourselves on and our anxiety of attempting to find our way back to the road we desired. When we see the beauty in the dusk it is easier to motivate ourselves to acknowledge the possibility of a new dawn.
