A psychological study highlighted that colors have an impact on a person’s psychological feelings and health
A psychological study conducted by two German and Swedish scientists highlighted that colors have an impact on a person’s psychological and health feelings.
There were tests conducted on a group of four-year-old children. He told them a story with sad events and then asked them to draw the scenes of the story. Their drawings were dominated by the dark brown color.
When they told them another joyful story with pleasant events, their drawings were dominated by green and yellow colors. The result of this study was the extent to which colors affect human emotions and feelings.
Let’s go and see the rest of the colors and their effect on humans
The color blue
A color that gives a person a feeling of comfort, spaciousness and freshness and reminds him of the clear sky and sea
And giving it some time to look at it calms the nerves and relieves tension
Therefore, many people like to spend their vacations on the seashore near its waters, as this gives a feeling of freshness and joy.
Blue is one of the cool colors that helps eliminate anxiety and prevent nervous tension because people who are exposed to this color have lower blood pressure.
It reduces the speed of the pulse and breathing and stimulates the parasympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system, which is responsible for calming down. Therefore, it balances the effect of the parasympathetic part.
The color green
It is the green color of nature that relaxes the eye, as it gives a feeling of relaxation in green forests, gardens, and orchards
There are also special color therapy clinics in some countries in which the patient is exposed to this color for several hours, walking or sitting in gardens rich in green, which extends as far as the eye can see.
The color orange
It is a solar color that has been shown to have many therapeutic benefits, as it stimulates blood circulation in the body, adds vitality, and facilitates the digestion process
It suggests cleanliness, purity, and kindness, and therefore he hesitates to describe a person’s goodness, as stated in popular proverbs, that his heart is white.
The yellow color
A rich, warm color that is considered a solar color, in addition to being the color of gold that attracts the eye, as it is a bright, radiant color that gives a feeling of joy and pleasure and helps with concentration and clarity of mind.
It also reduces the feeling of pain and creates peace of mind
On the other hand, we find that some colors have negative or even harmful effects on a person’s general health and psychological health, including those colors
It is a hot, deep, exciting color that causes arousal and emotional excitement. Therefore, it is used in reception corridors to indicate its heat, friendliness, and welcome to visitors. It is a color that symbolizes danger. It is also used for sexual arousal, which some women are keen on in their clothes. It is also widely used in the decorations of clubs and nightclubs.
It symbolizes sadness and expresses mourning and isolation in the cultures of some peoples, where customs impose this. The matter differs in other peoples, such as China, for example, where sadness is symbolized by the color white.
The results also showed that the effect of colors varies depending on the periods of light and darkness at different hours of the day
It has been proven that the colors that comfort us psychologically during the night may make us extremely nervous in the world of colors. Scientists explain this by the difference in our personal lives.
Thus, the situation changed in the world of colors٠
It was our old custom that if a child was afflicted with measles, the grandmother would advise the mother for good treatment and speedy recovery, which was for the sick child to wear a red dress and to be placed in a dark room and for the lighting in it, if necessary, to be red at times. And if you ask about the reason for the red color?
The answer came to you: Color therapy was not a result of coincidence, so we do not know the real reason, but it was a habit that we inherited from our ancestors
The use of red color for measles in particular is not the only use of this famous blood color
As a person is exposed to the color red for long periods, it is considered beneficial and therefore recommended by psychologists
In the thirteenth century and in England
Edward I was infected with smallpox, which was common at the time and extremely fatal to its victims. Its effect was death or disfigurement of the face and body, which could destroy him completely.
The doctor at the royal palace at that time was called Dr. Johnson, and she believed in the importance of using colors to relieve and treat the patient.
She hung red curtains around the child’s bed as part of the treatment. The result was that the child recovered quickly and the smallpox did not leave any scars or disfigurements on his face.
Several theories have preceded that exposure of a person to the color red for long periods has a health benefit, as it is considered to treat some diseases or help in treating them, including that it may not tire the eye that is particularly afflicted with the disease, especially measles and smallpox, because the eye’s reception of the red color mainly benefits the edges of the retina in the eye and because it It causes distribution of this reception, so it does not require concentration and muscle strain in the eye.
There are also a number of doctors who believe that colors have special therapeutic powers. A Danish scientist named Dr. Nell Vincent re-tested the treatment with red color on a smallpox patient, using special and precise devices, and proving that the red color prevents ultraviolet rays from reaching the affected skin, as it is a major cause. Skin injury and deformities.
Color scientists say that sunlight originally contains seven colors, which are the colors of the spectrum as we know: red, yellow, green, blue, indigo, orange, and violet
This amount of light waves shines with different abilities to penetrate living skin and affect it. Some of these abilities are beneficial and some are harmful, and light rays in general have a special ability to produce vitamin D inside skin cells, especially since this vitamin is necessary for the growth and health of the body’s digestive system and teeth at age. The developing child
Sunlight is the most important natural source of this vitamin, and it is known that sunlight is the primary factor in the metabolism of chlorophyll in plants
Chlorophyll is absorbed and is the green substance in the plant. Through sunlight, it is converted metabolically into organic substances within the plant cells.
Thus, sunlight is an essential source of food for plants on Earth
Treating diseases through colors
Color scientists have been able to identify several benefits of colors and their benefit from some diseases.
Among these are:
The yellow color is useful in treating intestinal disease and indigestion.
– Blue color: useful in treating skin diseases.
– the color
The most suitable colors for delivery and delivery rooms.
– Green color: useful in treating heart and circulatory patients
– Skin tuberculosis or skin tuberculosis (LUPUS) improves quickly if the affected part is exposed to ultraviolet rays.
There are other types of invisible light rays, including laser rays.
These laser rays are, in fact, bundles of light gathered with intense focus in one direction.
Laser beams can be made from ultraviolet rays, blue rays, red rays, and so on
Thus, it is possible to greatly benefit from the benefits of each type in treating the disease appropriate to it
