Color psychology self-help with color wallpapers

In case you didn’t know, there is a branch of psychology called “Color Psychology.” Though a relatively new area of science, its many offshoots have already spread to important areas of life, for instance, marketing, therapy & healing, workplace condition management, art studies, to name but a few. And you surely do not have to try too hard to grasp the significance of this fresh spring in the otherwise ancient science of colors.
Just take a walk in the woods, or even in the city park, and inhale the colors, or better put, let the colors capture you and spread their effect all over your body and mind. What could replace that blue sky, that green grass, that unique color of a rose? Or even just look around in your room, in your office, on the street; colors just contribute so much to our emotional well-being. Have you ever tried working in a room that had gray-painted walls? Ever lived in a country where it rains most of the time and the sky is just gray? There is no way to avoid getting depressed and feeling down in places like that. Actually, there is a mental disorder called SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), which is a type of depression that manifests as a result of the constant bad weather in countries like the UK or Ireland. On the other hand, people who work in brightly colored rooms or, even better, in the open tend to be much less influenced by dark moods. The same goes for people living in sun-kissed countries, like Spain or Italy, where all they see all year round is that huge, bright disc smiling at them from above.
So why not apply the science of color psychology to things we spend a lot of time doing? Consider how solid color wallpaper could assist you in controlling your mood. You spend quite many hours in front of the screen anyway, so it makes sense to have a source of emotional relief at hand, right on your screen, doesn’t it? Want to give it a try?
Here are some built-in colors that you can set as your wallpaper using RGB Color Wallpaper Pro, and the effects each color has on one’s mind:
Red
Red
The timeless color of love, passion, vitality, courage, strength, and ambition. However, too much of it can cause aggression, irritation, or restlessness. Use it with care when you need to enhance the positive qualities mentioned above.
Pink
Pink
If you feel a bit irritated or angry, change the wallpaper to pink, and the calming and soothing effect of it will hit you immediately. Pink is also the main color associated with femininity, being gentle, nourishing, and having the quality of making lonely feelings go away, as a caring mother or wife does.
Orange
Orange
Is it raining outside? When you set an orange wallpaper, you can’t help but smile and feel happy. It’s entertaining, joyful, uplifting, self-esteem boosting, and it even reminds us how juicy and delicious the fruit is!
Yellow
Yellow
Kids always color the sun yellow when they draw it, even though it is not purely yellow. But it’s no surprise they do, as yellow triggers many of the same effects as sunshine does. It is cheerful and uplifting, pure and bright, and also associated with creative and intellectual energy. So if you need a creativity boost, have to come up with new ideas, have to memorize things, or have to make decisions, choose yellow.
Green (Lime)
Green (Lime)
Which other color could better represent nature? The grass, the trees, most of the plants; they all symbolize life, vitality, rejuvenation, regeneration, and growth. It is also the color of learning, balance, and safety. It restores and enhances self-respect and is a great pick to induce relaxing feelings too.
Blue
Blue
The color of the water and the sky, two of the most influential life forces, and the color that passes on their effects. We often say that looking at the sea or a lake calms the mind and takes away bad feelings. It is therefore the color of clarity, relaxation, peace of mind, creativity and intuition. It is also said that blue helps memorize texts. But too dark blue can induce depression, hence the saying “I’m feeling blue.”
Purple
Purple
Purple is a great, highly valued color for balancing the mind. It helps channel obsessions and eliminates fear.
White
White
The color of innocence, purity, a clear slate, new beginnings, truthfulness, and openness in many cultures. It helps to overcome emotional shock or despair.
Black
Black
Even though it is the color of death and grief in some cultures, black is also comforting and protecting. In art, it is the color of silence, mystery, the infinite, and in some cultures, black is the color of the earth, so it symbolizes fertility. Black also blocks internal changes, so use it with care.
Gray
Gray
It is a bit of a controversial color when it comes to analyzing its effects. It is the color of authority and a corporate frame of mind, but we also often associate it with people that lack individualism. At the same time, it is also connected to independence, self-control, and may trigger loneliness.
Brown
Brown
Brown is the color of security, firmness, and comfort. It’s also associated with Mother Earth but may also represent narrow-mindedness.
Magenta
Magenta
Magenta is the color of universal harmony; it balances all three aspects of our being: emotional, physical, and spiritual. It also represents the free, soaring soul and is also associated with tolerance and acceptance. But use it with care if you already feel impatient, intolerant, or demanding, because it can strengthen those qualities.
Cyan
Cyan
It has similar effects to those of blue, as cyan is a lighter shade of blue. But cyan brings about stronger positive effects than blue does, including happiness, wisdom, and loyalty.
