Using Color to Improve Your Performance

Did you know that color has a quick and powerful impact on the choices you make every day? According to six different studies in the Journal of Science the color red makes you more detail-oriented while the color blue inspires you to be more creative.

Color therapy is used in complementary, alternative healing. In stress-management addressing the five senses creates a powerful synergy, for example, combining music with exercise or deep breathing while visualizing the color green. See the color chart below to give meaning or make changes to the way you color your world.
Of course, there is an important qualifier: All this depends on the personal associations you have with color. If you have a good experience or received good news while wearing a particular color, then you will have positive associations. However, if you were abused while wearing a cheerful color, you will have negative associations.

Ultimately, when you select your personal style or your view, think about the message you want to transmit or the energy you will absorb. Donít get locked into one color. When it concerns the vast range of your personality, think rainbow.
