Need to focus? Create a green sanctuary

A calming green can increase concentration and balance the mind.

The close link between pale, soft greens and nature makes the colour a soothing shade that helps to take away stress and negative feelings. But green can also promote concentration. That’s why theatres and TV studios have a ‘green room’, a place where actors can go to relax before a show. In fact, if you look carefully, green is a popular colour choice for spaces where people benefit from mental clarity, such as meeting rooms and classrooms.

Consider using green in your home in areas where a calm, focused mind is needed. Why not try painting the walls in your bedroom or home office a pale sea green? It just might inspire you to have more great ideas!
