4. Yellow:

There is a long list of health benefits that are associated with the color yellow. Yellow is for ‘sunshine’. Hence it is mostly associated with joy, happiness and hope. Moreover, this shade is meant to bring out the perception of self-respect, self-control, uplifting, contentment, decision-making and cleansing in oneself.

Surrounding depressed people with yellow-colored objects can help them in fast recovery. This method is also good for beating out negativity, fatigue and lack of confidence from one’s personality.


5. Orange:

Since this color stands in between the two variations of its shades, that are red and yellow, the orange color is associated with health benefits that combine the strength of red and the joy of yellow. This shade is counted among ‘warm colors’, as it gives the human body a sensation of heat.

Increased determination, boosted enthusiasm and high levels of strength are some boons that the orange color imparts to human health.


6. Violet:

Color therapists assume that violet color is the shade of the crown ‘Chakra’ (which is the center of trust, happiness and connectivity with one’s own self). According to therapists, violet affects the entire body, both physically and mentally. They say that it stimulates the spleen, adds to the bone growth and maintains the body’s electrolyte balance. Psychologically, the color brings out inspiration and humility in the personality and is good for provoking dream-activity.


7. Pink:

Those who say pink is for girls only, ponder over this myth at the end of the paragraph. Pink stands for gratitude, appreciation and love, and these characteristics are not linked with a specific gender.  It stimulates the feelings of tranquility, warmth and nurture in one’s personality. The color is really good when it comes to reassuring and calming of one’s emotions.


8. Grey:

Despite of the dark characteristic of this shade, the color grey is associated with ‘neutrality’. However, too much of grey can bring out negativity, depression, low-moods, lack of energy and shrinking confidence in your personality.


9. Black:

Black is not a shade actually; it marks the ‘absence of any color’. Things appear black when they do not reflect back any light, indicating that all the seven shades of the light have been absorbed in the object. Black color is associated with glamour, security and sophistication. However, it is widely used to express sadness and grief.


10. White:

An object is white when it reflects back all the seven colors. White stands for ‘purity’, ‘equality’ and ‘peace’. Cleanliness, hygiene and sterility are all associated with white. It also represents coolness, since it is the color of snow.
