Color has a bigger impact on your life than you might realize—for example, did know the colors of your walls have a direct effect on your mood? So it should come as no surprise that major airlines keep this in mind, as well.
“The color of the sky right now, bright and sunny, lowers heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and releases dopamine in the brain,” says Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, a licensed professional counselor, and board-certified coach.
But guess what? Using the color blue isn’t the only sneaky way that airlines are trying to influence your behavior. There’s a similar reason why you’ll find carpeting at your airline gate, too.
