Did you ever notice that you’re attracted to places that make you feel happy or relaxed? Sometimes we choose a restaurant or store based on our mood. It’s very likely that the color of the room is affecting you. Colors have a powerful effect on your emotional state. Usually, people are unaware of how the colors of their clothes and surroundings influence their mood and behavior. Learning about how color affects you will allow you to use color to make you happier, calmer, and more successful.
Effects of cool colors
Cool colors, such as purple, green and blue, are known to trigger feelings of serenity.
If you want to get your creative juices flowing, try surrounding yourself with purple. Purple incorporates both serenity (blue) and stimulation(red) to make the perfect environment for creativity.
Do you need to relax? Blue and green are calming colors. Blue is the color of the ocean and sky– the side of nature that is constant, trustworthy, and dependable. Green is the most common color in nature and is associated with balance, freshness, and rebirth.
Effects of warm colors
Warm colors stimulate the senses. Yellow and orange are connected with food and are known to cause hunger. If you are on a diet, you may not want to paint your kitchen orange!
Not sure what color to wear on a date? Red, the color of joy and passion, draws the attention and creates excitement. Read more about how the color red influences our behavior.
Bright colors, such as yellow, reflect light, and too much exposure can stimulate your eyes and make you feel irritated.
Brown, white, and black
Brown connects you to the earth, giving you a sense of stability and orderliness.
White fosters neutrality, cleanliness and purity. Doctors wear white coats and brides dress in white gowns. Surround yourself with white if you want clarity or a fresh beginning.
The color of a thunder storm, black is powerful and authoritative. Too much black can be overwhelming. On the other hand, black creates feelings of mystery, possibility, and opportunity.
Use color to enhance your life
