Hey Gen X Lady!
Back in the day so many of us listened to The Smiths, The Cure and Depeche Mode. We rocked cutting-edge hair cuts and we wore black from head to toe.
But somewhere along the line wearing black was less about being badass and more about hiding in the background. Today, Gen Xers are masters at blending in.
At The Resting Mind, Jackie and I feel that Gen X women have been living in black and white for way too long.
There are endless research reports on the impact color has on the brain and it also shows that colors can have a psychological effect on people.
Not surprising, when you feel good, confident, put together, your energy level is high. High energy levels put our productivity in a state of creativity and flow.
So when you look at warm, bright colors, your brain releases dopamine — also known as the “feel-good hormone” — and our mood improves.
Color can literally positively change the wiring of your brain. At The Resting Mind, this is our mission. We want to help you reset your subconscious mind so that you can make your life magnificent.
So today, I am going to ask you to take a bold step. Choose your color. Start to incorporate it into your day-to-day. Get ready to embrace your 1985 Gen X badass.

We went to college in the 90s, started our careers when cell phones were a luxury that came with a shoulder bag and fax machines were the newest tech.
Here we are now, in what should be the best years of our career facing an ever changing work culture that sees established Boomers still running the show with Millennials expecting to be the next leaders. Meanwhile we just want to take a vacation, make sure the kids get to soccer practice and fund our 401k.
Keep it on topic, be decent humans, no keyboard warriors.
