How do we organise and perceive the world around us? According to neuroscientists, our brains often process colour before anything else. As we scan the world for information, they say, colour perception is the first thing we use to help us comprehend and respond to our environment.
In fact, the human brain already has an inherent inclination to perceive information as naturally organised patterns. That’s why when we arrange information such as “to do” lists into understandable patterns like colour schemes, it ensures that our brains are able to more quickly process the information and also increases the likelihood the tasks will be completed.
From work files to email to homework to closets, colour is a great way to stay organised, boost productivity and breathe a sigh of relief!
