Looking for a feel-good color to boost your mood? Look no further than the lovely color of the sun, yellow. Find inspiration and happiness in a cheery yellow outfit, a bright sunny home or in small bits of your lifestyle.
Leslie Harrington from the Color Association of the United States recently shared with Dr. Oz that yellow will help you to to get noticed, boost your mood and slow the effects of aging through seeing it, wearing it and even eating it (lemons, squash, bananas, etc). The go-to happy hue feels good when it’s on and when you’re immersed in it. Proven to make you feel better, yellow induces a good attitude and even makes you look more friendly to others. While our suggestions use the full extent of the hue, even little pops of the color can do the trick. If you’re feeling blue about something, throw on a sunshine-yellow scarf or necklace. Add hints of yellow in your kitchen to brighten up breakfast, cheer up your work space or lighten up your bedroom. Even the smallest touch can give you the happiness effect you’ve been searching for.
