When light enters the body it affects the major gland of the endocrine system, which is the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland controls hormones released by the endocrine glands, which regulate body functions such as metabolism, energy levels, appetite, sex drive, quality of sleep and growth.
The colors you choose to have around you communicate to the world what you feel and who you are. Choosing, more carefully, what colors you wear and bring into your environment brings about better emotional, physical and mental balance.
You may have a certain affinity to certain colors and choose your favorites when it comes to your wardrobe and your decor, but it is important to remember to include both warm and cool shades in your environmental spaces and in the colors you wear. Doing so contributes toward balancing personal and environmental energies.
A color wheel can help you to determine what colors are complimentary (opposite) to your favorite colors. For example, red scarf or tie would compliment a dark blue suit. To find a color wheel with more than just primary colors visit a paint store, visit your local library or bookstore, or take a look at Google images.
Color positioning can help to create more harmony in your environment as well. Adding just a splash of color here and there can instantly change the energy of a room or an outfit.
