TTHE EFFECT OF COLOUR-RICH PLANTS
Scientific research shows that colours are independent forces that create colour vibrations in our body. You perceive these vibrations with your eyes and your skin. Colours therefore not only provide visual stimuli, but also influence internal functions (such as your heartbeat, breathing and body temperature). And that's not all! Colours also have a psychological effect. Depending on personal and cultural factors, among others, they affect our thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
Good news? Very much so! Because that means that by making smart use of colour-rich plants in your workplace, you can control your behaviour and make colour work for you.
COLOUR YOUR HOME OFFICE WITH PLANTS
How you colour your home workplace and what colour you choose is of course up to you. But to give your career an extra boost, plants shouldn't be missing from the picture. After all, plants have a proven positive effect on your well-being and productivity. Thanks, plants!
Now imagine colourful plants that give you an extra boost. That fuel your enthusiasm and creativity, that help you calm down and concentrate, or that boost your caring and self-confidence...too good to be true? No way!
TON-SUR-TON: GREEN, ORANGE OR PINK?
We'd like to inspire you with a tonally green, orange and pink home workplaces, including matching plants. It's time to show your colours! Use the tips below to make the right colour choice and take your career to the next level.
TIP 1: DEFINE YOUR BUSINESS COMPETENCES AND GOALS
Take a close look at your daily work and business goals. What do you need to do your job well and which colour suits it?
- Green: do you need peace and harmony, does your work require a lot of concentration and/or are you stress sensitive? Then a green home office is probably your match.
- Orange: could you use some extra energy, enthusiasm and positivity and/or want to stimulate your creative brain? Then an orange home office is probably your match.
- Pink: a pink work environment encourages caring, self-confidence and compassion. Perfect for people who work together a lot.
TIP 2: LET YOUR FEELINGS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
Which colour do you prefer visually and emotionally? Subconscious associations you have with a certain colour are also important when making a colour choice.
TIP 3: KNOW YOURSELF
Match the colour with yourself as a person. Things can't get too crazy and colourful enough for you and you need lots of stimuli? Then let a colour like orange dominate. Do you get overexcited at the thought of a workplace in a bright colour? Then a green or soft pink working environment is a better idea.
