Have you ever considered that the colors adorning your office, study or workspace can affect learning, concentration, focus and memorization?
Everything ranging from furniture colors, paint colors and even accessory colors in your office could be stimulating (or hindering) your learning abilities, as well, as the learning abilities of others utilizing the space.
Identifying your most optimal colors for learning, focus and concentration can enable you to feel more alert and be more productive. In this article, we explore how to discover colors conducive to your individual learning skills, as well as how to curate an environment with those colors, thereby stimulating comprehension and retention.
How Can Color Stimulate Learning?
Studies show that colors are processed in different areas of the brain and can largely impact daily decisions, memory and retention capabilities and mental performance.
For instance, one study found that adults who underwent color therapy for 10 weeks performed better on cognitive skills tests in comparison to the control group.
Other researchers note that the brain stores and connects colors with memories, allowing information to be retained and readily available for future experiences. In other words, surrounding yourself with colors associated with specific memories can improve your ability to recall those memories.
Although, prior research underscores the connection between color and learning, these studies primarily rest on the basis of traditional color psychology.
Traditional color psychology implies that individuals react to colors universally. For example, some psychologists state that orange enhances and uplifts moods, while blue heightens productivity and focus.
However, traditional color theories do not take into consideration that countless variations of orange, blue and all other colors exist. In addition, everyone sees and processes color differently, resulting in varied affects on individual learning capabilities.
Determining Your Best Colors Conducive To Learning
Most traditional color theories seem easily applicable, but it is unrealistic to assume that everyone reacts the same way to the same hue.
Additionally, many traditional color theories are contradictory. For example, some theorists state that the color blue incites productivity, yet others say blue evokes sadness or depression. An online search can yield conflicting results, which can be overwhelming and deterring.
So how can you discern which colors are most conducive to your learning abilities? C Color, a DNA-based color analysis approach, addresses the above concerns and provides the answers you are looking for in this arena.
The C Color methodology avoids generalizations and contradictions presented by traditional color theories and instead offers an individualized, DNA-based approach to understanding your true color preferences.
C Color’s proprietary technology categorizes hundreds of thousands of colors into four C Color Spectrums. By taking the C Color Quiz, you can determine your C Color Spectrum and by utilizing the C Color App you can identify your genetically preferred colors and those colors can be the most conducive to stimulating your learning abilities.
How To Design An Optimal Learning Environment
Now that you have an understanding of how the C Color App identifies your optimal colors, use these decorating tips to enhance your office or workspace.
- Paint: Update your office by painting the walls with a color in your C Color Spectrum. If the idea of painting feels overwhelming, hang artwork or paint the door frame with one of your optimal hues to give the room a renewed and fresh appearance.
- Supplies: For a functional and cost-effective option, add office supplies that fall in your C Color Spectrum, such as dividers, other organizers, desk mats, laptop and keyboard covers, frames, colored pens and pencils etc.
- Furniture: Enhance your surroundings by purchasing a desk, chair, sofa or another furniture item in one of the colors within your C Color Spectrum.
For a cohesive and learning-conducive environment, try incorporating all three options into your workspace.
