According to Holistic Online, yellow is good for mental activities, a sense of awakening and to support intellectual abilities. It is a creative colour and acts to build motivation, courage and self-confidence, as well as stimulate and energise those in its presence. Yellow also helps muscles produce energy. In particular, lemon yellow provides for clear and positive thinking and stimulates the brain.
Other Warm Colors
Other warm colours may also be beneficial for motivation in an office setting. Magenta balances emotions that are too high or too low, which can be particularly helpful for demotivating stress or apathy.
White can be used sparingly to strengthen individuals and to promote purity and virtue, which can help people feel motivated to work--particularly when fulfilling obligations or for those tasks that need mental strength. However, white in excess can cause lethargy, passivity and inhibitions, says Holistic Online.
