If you spend a lot of time in your office or simply work from home, then atmosphere you create within this space can dramatically affect your energy level and personal health. The heart of productivity is the office, so you want to make sure that the area has an uplifting and positive energy.
Below are a few basic recommendations on how people can use feng shui principles to ensure their office has an inspiring and supportive energy:
First, see to it that that the office is a dedicated workspace. Usually, people make do with any work space when they go home from work. This may be a corner of the family room or the dining room table for an office. With the pervasiveness of laptop computers, people turn their sofa living room into an office space.
The bad side to this is that create an office that’s part of another area generates conflicting energy that hinders your ability to work efficiently and effectively. It makes it difficult to focus on your work and attracts distractions that in turn, create more stress. It also makes it hard to just take a few moments to unwind and relax and makes it difficult to extricate yourself from what you’re doing when it’s time to spend valuable time with your family. Exhaustion and poor health from stress is the end result having work constantly on your mind.
See to it also that your office is well lighted. A poorly lighted office can cause depression which makes very hard to be productive. If your office space has no windows and is lit with fluorescent lights can be extremely depressing and cause headaches. The best office space is one that has multiple windows and illuminates your space with natural lighting. Use floor lamps or desk lamps if this is not possible. This will brighten the room and bring in the flow of inspiring positive energy. This not only helps you to work more productively, it also will make you feel better thus promoting invigorating health.
Selecting the proper colors for your office can also help make you a healthy and efficient worker. The colors you select for your office space should be based on the kind of work you do. If your work requires you to feel energized, use red, orange, and yellow and other inspiring and warm colors. If your work demands you work in a calm and relaxed environment, select tan, green, blue and other relaxing cool colors which will give you the peace of mind you need to get your work done in the best possible way.
