How do colors affect us?
For those of you following my dog’s progress, just a note of update. I’m late with this week’s blog because my little tike had a set back with his stitches. The results were not good and I won’t get on my soap box about Vet’s…I’ll leave that for another blog.
Just know; my tike’s in my care now and I WILL see him back to GOOD HEALTH.
Now, my questions for you this week – Have you ever wondered what, and if, there are any effects from color? What made you pick the color you’re wearing today? Why didn’t you pick it out for yesterday’s outfit? Does color therapy work? Why did you paint your house the color you did? Why is your bedroom that color? And why are you driving a red car?
I got to thinking about it and did a little research. Did you know; if you have an insane person who is out of control you can put them in a (pepto)pink room and they will immediately calm down? BUT if you leave them in that pink room for more than thirty minutes they will become agitated again.
Most everyone knows if you drive a red car you’ll get more speeding tickets than a guy driving a white car? But why? Red is a color that draws the eye and emotions. Red is seen as fast, so you could be driving only five miles over the limit and the guy in the white car is ten but you'll be the one that's stopped...because to the eye red looks fast. I wonder if that's why they called it the "red light" district - the women were fast. LOL, you've got to wonder, don't you? At first you’ll feel happy in a red room but be careful how much time you spend in it - you’ll discover you'll have more arguments in that red room than in any of the other rooms of another color. But, you'll also have more kisses there (if you know what I mean)Passion!
Electric blue – now this is a color most of us wouldn’t paint a room, but if you need major relaxation time – find a room this color to rest in. You will find it’s a color to soothe the mind and soul. Just be sure to put a lock on the door or you’ll have everyone and their brother coming in to join you. This color brings PEACE.
If you want to sell a house faster – paint the front door yellow instead of white, burgundy, or brown. Yellow is inviting to the buyer.
What are you saying when you wear black? Black states high intelligence and says you are ready to listen and absorb.
White shows you are ready to talk and share who you are.
Green shows one of wisdom and healer.
Did you know; if you paint your house exterior in a soft gray you have a higher percentage of break-ins over a house that is painted blue, white, or yellow?
Ever wonder why you picked the blue outfit to wear today instead of the green one? Our minds know colors affect us. When our spiritual mind knows something isn’t right (even before our physical brains discover we don’t feel good) our mind will send the brain a message to pick a particular color it knows will help us. Be it to give us energy, soothe a bad stomach, or keep us from getting depressed…that’s what motivates us to pick one color over another on any given day. So, the next time you pick a color – take note. What is the body telling you?
Back in September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a social studies school teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock, did something not to be forgotten.
On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks out of her classroom. When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks.
Ms. Cothren, where're our desks?'
She replied, 'You can't have a desk until you tell me how you earn the right to sit at a desk.'
They thought, 'Well, maybe it's our grades.'
'No,' she said.
'Maybe it's our behavior.'
She told them, 'No, it's not even your behavior.'
And so, they came and went, the first period, second period, third period. Still no desks in the classroom.
By early afternoon television news crews had started gathering in Ms. Cothren's classroom to report about this crazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of her room. The final period of the day came and as the puzzled students found seats on the floor of the deskless classroom.
Martha Cothren said, 'Throughout the day no one has been able to tell me just what he or she has done to earn the right to sit at the desks that are ordinarily found in this classroom. Now I am going to show you.'
At this point, Martha Cothren went over to the door of her classroom and opened it. Twenty-seven U.S. Veterans, all in uniforms, walked into that classroom, each one carrying a school desk. The Vets began placing the school desks in rows, and then they would walk over and stand alongside the wall. By the time the last soldier had set the final desk in place those kids started to understand, perhaps for the first time in their lives, just how the right to sit at those desks had been earned.
Martha said, 'You didn't earn the right to sit at these desks. These heroes did it for you. They placed the desks here for you. Now, it's up to you to sit in them. It is your responsibility to learn, to be good students, to be good citizens. They paid the price so that you could have the freedom to get an education. Don't ever forget it.'
By the way, this is a true story. And this teacher was awarded Teacher of the Year for the state of Arkansas in 2006.
Please consider telling others about this message...tell them to come here to read and ponder then pass along, so none of us will ever forget that the freedoms we have in this great country were earned by U. S. Veterans.
