Brain Color Zones

A few weeks ago I received an email from Susan Gretzinger, a Clinical Educator in Behavior Health Services at Winchester Medical Center in Winchester, Virginia. Susan had purchased a copy of What Color Is Your Brain? at an APNA  (American Psychiatric Nurses Association) conference and had contacted me to learn more about my Brain Color Workshops for the nursing staff at the Medical Center. We also discussed that my book had previously been reviewed in the APNA Newsletter .

I appreciated Susan’s perspective when I read her description of the Brain Color approach…
“I liked the color spectrum’s nonthreatening emphasis on “not one color is best” & the ability, as an individual, to develop your other color zones.” 

I wrote Susan and told her, ” I love your ideas of  color zones. May I borrow that and give you attribution?”

Susan replied, “Go for the color zones!  Would love to have something positive attributed to me!!”

By definition a zone is an area or a region distinguished from adjacent parts by a distinctive feature or characteristic. That definition also defines our “Brain Colors” and got my “Blue Brain” popping about  the multitude of zones we speak about in our lives.

Below are just a few ideas, see if you can add to the list:
Zone Out
In The zone
Zone diet
Time Zone
Speed Zone
Buffer Zone
Dead Zone
Demilitarized Zone
Zone In
Danger Zone
End Zone
Comfort Zone
Safety Zone
Middle Zone Musing Blog

The Twilight Zone was one of my favorite TV
programs, which popped into my mind first.
Now, don’t Zone Out… have fun Zoning In!
