Can Specific Colors Affect Your Success and Productivity?

Did you know that the color of the walls in your bedroom could have had an impact on the lack of concentration you have dealt with throughout high school and college?

Certain colors can irritate, cause headaches, or make you feel sick. Other colors and color combinations can be healing and soothing. Color is everywhere, and we shouldn’t underestimate its impact on us.

    Isn’t color fascinating? I am trying to explain to a friend of mine why color is important to me — the clothes I wear, the shade of my skin, my haircolor — so far he does not understand.
