Interpretation: The colour green is associated with many things such as abundance, new beginnings, and most commonly, nature. This is the colour of life that surrounds us. With green forests, harmony can be brought into the lives of humans when there is an abundant amount of oxygen and trees that bear fruit. The word ‘tranquillity’ often comes to mind when people think of the colour green because of its association with nature. This colour has a calming effect on the mind – this being the reason why many people prefer to exercise in a green environment to decrease feelings of anger, confusion, and stress. Activities such as this will lead the individual to commit to a healthier lifestyle as well as have an ease on their burdens as some tension is removed from their body both physically and mentally. As a society, we have the responsibility to maintain the greenery that is left on Earth in an attempt to overcome the threatening challenges global warming presents.
