CHANGING YOUR ENVIRONMENT > CHANGING YOUR ENVIRONMENT - Pg. 59

59 ~ Color and Design Soft, muted colors and regular designs are low load and have a calming effect. Bright colors such as reds, yellows, oranges and bold designs in clashing colors are high load and stimulating. ~ Lighting Change mood with colored light bulbs. Use a soft yellow light for meetings to promote relaxation, and a bright white light (which is more stimulating) when doing boring work. ~ People People probably have the highest load. Friends can be unpredictable. Groups of people, especially strangers, are high load. You can use this rule to your advantage by taking tedious, repetitive paper work to the cafeteria where the stimulating presence of other people can bring your tension level up. Take difficult work requiring a lot of concentration into a private conference room where the absence of stimulation can help you relax and concentrate.
