Did you know today is National Color Day?
What a great thing to celebrate. After all, color can change our mood, help us remember events and even effect what we taste! Not to mention, be super fun to craft with!
Here are a few fun notes from Color Specialist Leatrice Elseman (http://www.scienceofpeople.com/2013/01/10-ways-color-affects-your-mood/)
What Color Should You Make Your Desktop: Green
What color you choose for your desktop and the colors you choose for your website can greatly affect your productivity. The color green is restful for eyes and produces the least amount of eyestrain. This is a good choice for computer desktops if you are in front of a screen for many hours.
What Color to Wear for a Work Out: Orange
Orange is a color of stimulation and enthusiasm. Orange is a nice mix of red’s passion and yellow’s joy. Research has found that orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an energizing effect, and stimulates brain activity.
What Color to Wear on a Date (if you’re a woman): Red
Red is the color of passion and gets blood pumping. Women can wear this to get their date’s heart racing.
What Color to Wear on a Date (if you’re a man): Blue
Blue is the most stable color. Women love seeing stable men. It is also calming and can help relax both you and your date’s nerves.
What Colors Should You Paint Your Office: Blue and Green
In 1999, researchers at Creighton University found that colors significantly influence employees’ emotions and efficiency. Workers in blue offices felt the most centered, calm and hopeful towards their work. Since blue can lower heart rates and green reduces anxiety and is associated with money, a combination of blue and green is best for the workplace.
