As someone who works a desk job collecting data for the company and spends a large amount of time in the car each week, music, podcasts, and audiobooks have quickly become one of my best companions.
But music and other auditory mediums have always had a different feeling to me, representing more than just "background noise". In recent years, I've come to the conclusion that it may be a form of synesthesia.
Synesthesia can be defined as the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.
According to Color Psychology, yellow means joy, radiance, warmth, inspiration, enlightenment, cheerfulness and optimism.
