Did you know that every flower is said to represent a different emotion, and have often been used in holistic stress relief therapies of all kinds? You can easily make use of this old fashioned technique by incorporating wallpapers with flowers into your daily routine. All you have to really do is just download the image, install it on your computer, and enjoy it every time you log in to your computer. This can be especially helpful for those who work long, hectic hours on their computer.

Flowers: The Importance of Colors

Just like every flower invokes or represents a different feeling, so does every color. The color of the background or the flowers themselves can help to invoke stronger feelings of calm if the proper ones are used. If the wrong color is used, one that takes away from your feeling of calm, the idea behind using a wallpaper with flowers will be redundant.

Great colors to have incorporated into your flowers wallpaper include orange, which represents optimism, and blue, which represents peace. Other good choices are brown, representing comfort, turquoise, representing clarity of mind, and magenta, which stands for emotional balance.

Colors to avoid include red, which can invoke anger in some individuals, gray, which stands for emotional detachment, and black, which represents mystery.

The other colors, which can be used if you feel their meanings represent you or the exact emotions you're trying to invoke, include:
-Yellow = Optimism, Cheerfulness
-Green = Balance, Growth
-Indigo = Intuition
-Purple = Imagination
- Pink = Love, Nurturing
-Silver = Emotional Sensitivity
-Gold = Extravagance, Wealth
-White = Purity, Wholeness, Completion
