If you work in an office you will know how important stationery can be. “Who has pinched my stapler?” and “where have all my pens gone?” are just some of the cries you will hear in the office from time to time. Sometimes there is too much of it and sometimes there is none to be seen. But when it comes to picking out your stationery, you have to go funky don’t you? It adds personality to your work space and character to your desk. It livens up your day sometimes and a charismatic little notepad can make all the difference when jotting down ideas.
Having boring folders, pencils, pens and books just isn’t going to brighten up your day. Having something colourful and bold on your desk will surely lift your spirits. It is a scientific fact that different colours can affect your mood.
Red stimulates the adrenal glands and therefore increases stamina and helps us become strong. Meaning more energy to do more work.
Orange is a positive colour for your emotional state and improves your feeling of self worth. This can help to decrease those ‘depressed feeling days’.
Yellow makes your brain more alert, so next time someone asks you a question, your response time will be quick like a cat.
Green helps you to relax and calms your mood. So no more stressing out over deadlines and targets. Take it easy with the colour green.
Blue is said to lower blood pressure and is classed as a soothing colour. When your feeling a little stressed out why not take it out on your blue pen and start writing rigorously and jot down some interesting ideas.
So the next time your boss offers you stationery, ask for colourful and say it will make you work harder (well that can be the excuse anyway). The Orla Kiely stationery range is the perfect choice as it is designed with plenty of different colours including the above shades.
