    Thinking of painting your bedroom? What color are you considering? You may want to take a minute and think about your color choices and what they can do for you. Color can make an impact on you whether you know it or not and depending on how much time you spend in your bedroom, your color choices can affect you in a positive or negative way, all day, or all night long. If your bedroom is your sanctuary, the place you go into to get away from it all, then you may want to consider the color green. Green has a relaxing, tranquil, quality to it and there are many variations of the color green. You can add other relaxing colors like blues and browns too. If you like more neutral colors, then browns and beiges or earth tones go well in a bedroom also. Painting your bedroom in these colors will give you the feeling of comfort and safety when you step inside. If you 're thinking of a more "happy" color then you may want to try yellows and oranges, in calm or pastel tones of course. These two colors tend to make people feel happy and positive.

The color orange can make you hungry and could have you "midnight snacking" more than you 'd like. If you 're really a girly, girl, or your painting your daughter 's room, pink may be the color for you. Pink also has a calming affect and many…

    Footbinding Reflection

    • 1207 Words
    • 5 Pages

    as to why this was assigned to us. This book seemed outdated and I doubt I will have clients who are from this era. Footbinding is a very old custom that is no longer practiced; there may be one or two women who are still alive with bound feet. Also, the setting of this book was in the 1800s, China’s culture is significantly different now. I was thinking too immediate; through further introspection I realized these old outdated traditions are still in practice today in different forms. I…

    Forster and Le Guin, in their short stories “The Machine Stops” and “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” respectively make many assumptions about human nature in regards to what people seek and value most.

The futuristic worlds that both authors set up in their short stories deal…

    I noticed that when walking it was hard to distinguish the changes in my foot pressure but when I was standing still I did have an interesting observation. I found that I prefer positions where my weight is rested almost entirely on one side of a foot. I was told previously by my foot doctor that I have functional equinus, and was given orthotics to wear in my shoes. Functional equinus is when you do not properly rotate your ankle for movement so the orthotic was supposed to help encourage…

    26 bones, 33 joints and just over 120 muscles, our feet are a pretty small part of the body but are the very thing that moves it around, so why do we not concern ourselves more with the consequences of damaging our feet with poorly fitted shoes?
