The Power of Red

While RED can mean temper, anger or danger because it is associated with fiery heat and warmth, on the positive side it is commonly known as Christmas and New Year color because it symbolizes prosperity and joy. That is why every December 31st, before the midnight strikes, you can see the three of us wearing red.

Red is the color that provokes the most physiological responses. It has been shown that red causes the human heart beat and blood pressure to rise and to aid the interconnection of brain neurons. It has also been shown that people working in a red environment work faster, but they also make more mistakes. It increases restlessness and nervous tension. Also, red is commonly regarded to increase appetite. In the Western World it is also a symbol of love and passion.

You can also put some red in your life when you want:
•    more energy

•    increased enthusiasm and interest
•    action and confidence to go after your dreams
•    protection from fears and anxieties
