WEAR red underpants.
That was the advice yesterday of international colour expert Anjel OBryant who promised wearing red delicates would boost energy and brain stimulation.
Ms OBryant was in Launceston yesterday to celebrate International Colour Day with the Colour Society of Australia's Tasmanian chapter.
Dressed in this year's colour aqua - a relaxing colour - she said there was more to colour than just visual appeal.
Ms OBryant said colours vibrated electromagnetic energy and triggered physical, emotional and psychological responses in the brain.
A colour-response analyst, she said the influence of colour in daily life could not be underestimated.
Ms OBryant's career in colour began by training with Elizabeth Arden in London as an image manager.
She has since been contracted by major corporations for image consultancy, and in 2008, was recruited to do colour schemes for Mary McKillop Chapel for Pope Benedict's Australian visit.
Ms OBryant said colours were effective even when they couldn't be seen - using underwear as an example.
She said while violet suppressed appetite, indigo promoted insight and green brought balance and harmony, red was the most effective colour as it excited the body.
"So for all those having a grey day, grab a pair of red underwear," Ms OBryant said.
