Inject The Colour Of Happiness Into Your Friday Morning

And it was called yellow.

Yes, the colour yellow has quite a strong influence on our mood and behaviour. Isn’t it funny how a something so bodiless as a colour can make us feel happy, sad, or even hungry?

Yellow is the lightest hue on the colour spectrum and is the most energetic of the warmer colours on the wheel (red and orange being the other two colours). The vibrant colour stimulates both sides of our brain simultaneously and promotes higher amounts of mental agility and perception. We’re attracted to its brightness and induces us into a calmer and happier mental state.

Ever wonder why the world’s largest fast food companies use warm colours like yellow, red, and orange? (MacDonalds, Burger King, KFC) It’s not just a coincidence?that we’re eternally hungry creatures…

Psychologically, yellow?is uplifting and illuminating and can inspire original thought and inquisitiveness. So take five minutes and feast your eyes on some of our favourite yellow finds this Friday (friYAY).
