The Super Honest Truth About Yellow And Sunflowers
Yellow is a great color to stimulate enthusiasm for life. Uplifting, illuminating, cheerful, inquisitive, and fun, yellow will also awaken confidence and optimism. This is how the color yellow affects you:
Yellow is the color of happiness, but not head-in-the-clouds happiness. That’s because yellow is a practical thinker, rather than a dreamer. The color is related to learning, and resonates with the left (or logical) side of the brain, where it stimulates mentality and perception. The color yellow inspires thought, curiosity, and creativity which, when combined, lead to new ideas or finding new ways of doing things.
Now, it just so happens that yellow is the signature color of a flower that many people link to happiness: THE SUNFLOWER. Few flowers have the ability to lift spirits quite like sunflowers. They are cheery and charming, making them a crowd favorite, particularly during the summer.Sunflowers originated in the Americas around 1,000 BC, and were brought to Europe in the 16th century AD. Since then, the world has been enraptured by the sunflower’s splendor.One of the more delightful features of the sunflower is its tendency to stretch seemingly toward the sun. It is a bit of a myth that sunflowers always face the sun. Fully grown sunflowers actually face east. However, baby sunflowers do move east to west during the day as they are growing.
That’s the super honest truth about yellow and sunflowers as I know it.
