Yellowing leaves on a palm usually indicate overwatering but your plants may simply need to be fed. Try a half strength dilution of water soluable houseplant fertilizer. The soil should be allowed to dry out slightly between waterings and it's important that the container have adequate drainage holes. Stick your finger down into the potting soil before watering. If it is dry an inch below the surface, it's time to water. If it is still moist, you can hold off on watering for a few more days. Best wishes with your palms.
