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 décor accessory colors in your office could be stimulating or hindering your learning abilities. This is true for 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 that can be conducive to your learning skills, as well as how to curate an environment with those colors, thereby ideally stimulating comprehension and recollection.
How Can Color Stimulate Learning?
Studies show that colors are processed in different areas of the brain and that colors can significantly impact daily decisions, 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 while creating important memories can improve your ability to recall those memories.
Although, prior research underscores the connection between color and learning, those studies primarily rest on the basis of color psychology and have not been confirmed.
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.
Unfortunately, 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 oversimplified, as it is unrealistic to presume 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, that can be overwhelming and deterring.
How can you discern the colors that are most beneficial to your ability to learn?
