COLOR ME GOOD
Did you know that colors can create, express and influence emotions? Colors can also affect your energy, how your body feels, and your way of thinking.
Colors offer the possibility of giving a visual representation to an invisible quality. Seeing a particular color can change your mind without even noticing it. For example, many companies are attracting your attention by using a red logo to pump your blood. The same applies to a gym with red walls. Interestingly, bright yellow is the most tiring of all colors!
There is much scientific research on this topic. A German neurologist, Kurt Goldstein, has reported that light penetrates our eyes and the skin, passes through neurological pathways and affects the pineal gland in the brain, which affects the body, mind and emotions. That's why we feel certain colors in some way.
Lighting can influence the emission of colors. How we look at the color determines our emotions. That is: motivating, angry, sad, calm.
