Yellow is the brightest of all colours on the visible spectrum and contains more light than any other colour. For this reason it is associated with the sun and sunshine.
Yellow is vital, cheering and full of life. It is the colour of enthusiasm and positive thoughts. Yellow helps stimulate the energy needed to act on new ideas and initiatives.
Wear yellow accessories to give yourself a boost of confidence for a challenging meeting, a new venture or a job interview. Yellow energy promotes clear thinking, communication and memory.
Eat yellow foods such as bananas and pineapples to provide the nutrients needed for a healthy brain, nervous system, stomach, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. These nutrients also promote a positive attitude to life, including faith in a bright and positive future.
Make the most of the mellow end of summer sunshine when you can and try to get outside for at least half an hour a day.
Use primrose, golden or creamy yellow paint in your home to keep things sunny as the days get shorter; you can use it as the colour of a feature wall in a breakfast or dining room. It will have an uplifting effect and aid digestion. Other ways of introducing the benefits of yellow could be via items of soft furnishing such as a cushion or cheerful throw. Yellow toned light bulbs or lampshades can also bring a sunshine glow to your room which will be welcome as we move into the greyer months. Don’t forget flowers – there are always some yellow ones to buy if there are none in the garden or hedgerow – put them in a vase in a prominent place to lift the spirits.
