When you think of the color Blue what's the first thing you think of? If you guessed the following...

...then YOU my friend deserve a crisp high five, two tamagotchi's and some JNCO jeans because you're too cool for skool (you'll notice I used a 'k' in the word school. I'm so edgy and hip). In all actuality everyone is going to think of something totally different from the next person, there's just so many unique and personal ways that color relates to us as people. Maybe you think of a ludicrous Italian pop song from the late 90's, maybe you think of the color of a favorite sweater, a summer sky, a type of beverage, who knows! This is because there's actual psychology behind color and it's called, appropriately enough, Color Psychology. Our perception and relation to color can be vastly different from how someone else perceives it. Did you ever see a sign or an advertisement that just totally bugged the heck out of you (looking at you, Noid from Domino's). Or maybe when looking for places to rent, certain houses were just a sin to the eyes? There's a pretty good chance that color played an integral roll there, friendo.

That's why idioms like "I'm feeling blue today", "I'm so angry I'm seeing red!" and "I'm green with envy" using color aren't too far off base. There are psychological and mental reactions to colors. Warmer colors like Yellow, Red or Orange can evoke feelings of stress, hunger and anger...whereas colors like Blue, Purple and Green can evoke a sense of calm and tranquility. Since we're a company that likes life to be relaxing, peaceful and chill I think today we're going to highlight some of the ways a cooler color scheme with Yogibo can bring some of those chill vibes into your life! 



So, by now you probably know about the Yogibo Max. Weighs only 14 pounds, stands just under 6 feet tall and can stretch out to around 8 feet. Goes from a chair to a couch, bed, recliner, love seat, crash pad, the whole dang 9 yards. Our Turquoise and Blue covers also happen to be two of the most popular covers we've ever had. Wonder why that is?

Cool colors are typically considered to be restful and calming. Like we mentioned before, there's science behind this – because the eye focuses the cooler colors directly on the retina, they're said to be less straining on your eye muscles. Even the eyes have to skip leg day once in a while! And when it comes to good 'ol fashioned color theory, the color Blue is suggested for high-traffic rooms or rooms that you and other people will spend significant amounts of time in. Blue is typically seen as a calming and serene color, said to decrease respiration and lower blood pressure. So maybe a nice Blue Yogibo Max is just the thing to bring out the relaxation in your family room or bedroom! Since it's easily storable without taking up tons of rooms, switching between rooms with the Max on the fly is no problem at all.

There's also some alternate effects of the color Blue. It doesn't have to just be calm and relaxing, you know! Not everyone fancies themselves an at-peace-yogi with a head full of peaceful thoughts and happy shiny people. There's some other associations to Blue as well! What we're going to do right now is list a color association with a product we think is the best representation.



The Lounger: Just the best gaming chair around. The perfect posture so you're focused and ready to go round after round of your favorite game (or just hunt and fish in Red Dead Redemption 2 to make that campaign last forever and ever).

With a warm side, a cool side and a special design to perfectly cradle your neck 'n noggin, the Sleepybo won't ever let you down.



The Ms. Bliss weighted blanket: When the days get colder and the nights get darker the most important thing to stave off is always the cold and that's where Ms. Bliss comes in. Not only is it a great example of Weighted Therapy at use, it also comes in a scented version and non scented version, and the bags inside can be heated up for some REAL battle against the cold.

The Cozybo blanket: If, like George Costanza on Seinfeld you crave SERENITY NOW, this top seller is the comfiest blanket you'll ever own. It has a unique, gel-like feel that needs to be felt to believed and it's just the right size to keep you covered. We have people tell us all the time how it makes them feel warm in the winter and cool in the summer and we think you'll just adore it.
