Environment and Mindset {14 of 31 SOLSC}

I visit a new place with a bit of worry and anxiousness.  Immediately I'm intrigued about the environment.  White walls making everything bright. A projector is showing a whimsical simple solid orange fox playful walking across some landscape.  Just a few colors against white grass backgrounds.  It takes my mind of my worry and anxiousness.  

I ride an elevator up to the foyer and I'm greeted with walls of windows.  Natural light pouring in.  I check in with friendly people and get some directions.  As I walk, I can feel my shoulders relax.  I hear bird sounds inside the foyer.  I look up and see "flocks" organized in fleets by bright colors above my head navigating a tall artistic 3D tree with birdhouses hanging from it.  The tree and bird houses are white.  I think I like these sounds and reframe my thinking from worry to, I've got this.

It's interesting how white, simple art with bright colors, natural light, and sound can change my mindset.
