.
Colors in your environment create a mental, an emotional, and a physical reaction. Yes! a physical reaction!
.
Study's have shown that simply looking at the colour red increases your resting heart rate, encourages appetite and enhances metabolism. Take a look at all those lovely sale adds, fast food companies and big name products with red in them...they market with red for a reason!
.
Researchers have also found that increased excitement and heightened emotions equal clouded judgment and irrational decision making. For example, what  if your office is full of red and yellow punchy accents. The heightened excitement and energy of the colours could cause you to make quicker decisions in the workplace that you would not make otherwise.  
.
Offices are known for putting lots of blue hues in the boardrooms. Its specific calming effects create an environment for clearer communication The facts about colour are everywhere,  just check out all those communication apps from twitter to facebook, and messenger- all blue. Right down to our Iphone text messages. For these reasons thats exactly why gyms and branded fitness centres put bright vibrant red and yellow colours on their walls, and spas have soft hues of blue and white. 
.
"Blue is even found in weight loss plans. Recommending you to eat your food off of a blue plate. Why you ask, because blue rarely occurs naturally in food aside from blueberries and some plums. Humans are geared to avoid foods that are poisonous because blue colouring in food is often a sign of spoilage or poison, causing a suppression in appetite ."
.
The colours we choose to  rest on the walls of our homes have a great affect on how we feel day in and day out. Not to mention, what room we decide to put those colours.
.
Earth tones of the green variety of also said to have a healing effect. Not only mentally but also for our guts. Those who work in spaces that are green are said to experience fewer stomaches. With the colour green said to also improve reading and memory abilities- Some students find that laying a transparent sheet of green paper over reading material increases reading speed and comprehension.
"So it's no wonder that all those 'green rooms' for actors, it   helps with memorizing scripts, feeling more grounded and calm." How colour affects our moods is a very real thing. Take a good look at the walls around you now. The colour, are they warm or cool? Bright or calming? Even if the walls of a home are stark white, it is the art that catches your eye. 
.
Imagine every room of your home enhanced the desired need of that space.
Peace and relaxation when you walk in the front door. Excitement and energy in your entertainment space. Joy and confidence in your office. The kitchen made your guests increase their appetite. Or in other cases decrease yours, if thinner is your desire.
.
Better sex, more sleep. More vitality in your work outs, then retreating to your living room where peace and calm reign.
.
A better sense of well being begins with the colours we choose for each environment.
.
At the end of the day it all comes down to you.. and the right hue.
