The power of color: how it can reduce fatigue, relieve monotony, enhance sexuality, and more
- What does it mean to "look at the world through rose-colored glasses"?- Should you be concerned if your aura is blue?- Why can red alternatively hinder your sanity and enhance your sexuality?Color has been used as metaphor, energy source, and tool for healing. We are so saturated with color in our daily lives that we have become immune to its potentially great healing powers. Birren's monumental study traces the impact of color on human life from the dawn of civilization to today. Among his subjects are the historical aspects of color (how it inspired mystics while bewildering philosophers); its biological aspects (how color affects plant growth, and the healing power of color); and color's psychological aspects (our emotional reactions to color, and the proper use of color schemes in our personal appearance and environment).Ultimately The Power of Color explains how manipulating something as seemingly insignificant as color can greatly influence and enhance our lives.
