I have collaged some of my green posessions and things I like in this post. A lot of it is from my office, becuase I think being around this color makes me happy.
I can hypothisize why I love this color- and dream up ideas, but I think there is something about the way color effects us. I looked it up and the physical and mental effects of green are:
* Relaxing mentally as well as physically
* Helps alleviate depression, nervousness and anxiety
* Offers a sense of renewal, self-control and harmony
I agree with the above. I always feel fresh and relaxed around this color. It is even a little invigorating to me.
The website I found this info from is http://www.squidoo.com/colorexpert. It has some interesting information. I think our culture downplays how visual we are as humans, and that we are effected by what we look at. When considering how much power we have over our moods- color being part of that, why not surround ourselves with things that can actully help us feel good?
Well, I'm going to finish my green tea and ponder this. I want to hear about your favorite color experience: What is your favorite color? Does it have a ceartain effect on you?
