Color Your Room to Boost Concentration
The colors of your room and desk can change your entire study central. Your favorite colors, and those that represent your personality, may enforce your focus. Which colors speak to you and will compliment your study setting?
Cool and Collective
Cool colors are most often calming. If you have a laidback personality and like to feel relaxed while studying, then add blue, green, turquoise, purple or silver to your study space. Or, if you’re an active personality with a lot of energy and find it hard to focus, then adding calming colors to your workspace will assist in concentration. These shades are great for your desk ornamentation such as picture frames and pencil holders. Your favorite quote or bible verse typed on turquoise decorative paper in a silver frame might set the tone perfectly.
Warm and Invigorating
Warm colors can create excitability. These shades include: red, pink, yellow, orange and gold. Adding these shades in your space can enhance energy and spark new ideas. If you’re a creative type or need a little more motivation to tackle your homework assignments, then warm colors are a must. These shades would be perfect for the color of your writing utensils, notebooks and textbook covers. An orange cover for your science book might inspire revitalization and encourage reading.
Neutral and Natural
Neutral colors can serve as the backdrop for the other playful aspects of your study space. Adding black, gray, white, brown and beige to your desk area can transform a super cluttered space into a unified space to help you focus. These shades are great for aspects of your desk that serve mostly functional purposes. Add these colors to the knobs on your desk drawers, through a filing cabinet or a desk lamp.
Mix and match colors to create balance between dark and light shades. Too many colors create chaos and clutter, which stunts your ability to focus. Have fun coloring your room. Send us pictures via Facebook message or #ninechristianmagazine on Twitter and Instagram.
