Feng Shui for your Office

Need advice to boost your productivity and business performance?  Your surroundings will impact your ability to think clearly and focus on your goals.  Make your office or study a harmonious place to work with my top Feng Shui tips. 

In a Feng Shui consultation, I always advise clients to design their office in a way that activates their wealth sector.  Your wealth sector is unique to your building, and a Traditional Feng Shui consultant can tell you where that is.  However, if you don't know where the energetic hot spots are in your floor plan, here are some general tips to help you make your office or study as Feng Shui friendly as possible.

  • Sit in a position where you have a solid wall behind you.  This provides an energetic level of support and protection.  If this isn't possible, try placing a partition or screen behind you, or using a large solid back chair.
  • Place your desk in a position where you can see the door to your office.  If this isn't possible and you're feeling exposed, place a mirror in a location that reflects the entrance so that you can see who's coming in behind you.
  • Avoid sitting directly under overhead beams or the lowest part of a sloped ceiling.  This produces oppressive energy which can cause headaches and migraines.
  • Clear your clutter and organise your space.  You'll be amazed at how much more productive and focused you can be when your work environment is clutter free and well-organised.
  • Open windows and blinds to bring in fresh air and sunlight.  This will improve concentration and help to renew the energy in your office.  Plants also help to recycle indoor air.
  • Did you know that the colour yellow represents the intellect, and is a great colour for your office to boost concentration?  This doesn't mean that you need custard-coloured walls - a very subtle shade of yellow will do just fine!

Having good Feng Shui boosts opportunities and helps to kick start the process of change.  Positive thoughts, planning and action brings those opportunities to fruition.  Combine good Feng Shui with a well-executed and sound business plan, and you will be on your way to improving your business performance and prosperity!

  • After we go through the meaning of the term really like, not just in relation to a close relationship with an additional, although like a experience that is engendered when you have miltchmonkey a much better romantic relationship with yourself way too - or simply as being a a sense of better unity household or maybe man -- the idea will become substantially more really clear that each everyone is seeking in daily life is definitely like.

  • Hi Kat
    Along with water features, the colour red has a significant influence in Feng Shui as it activates the unseen energies in a space regardless of whether the energy is positive or negative.

    There is no simple rule about the colour red being good or bad for your Feng Shui, as this really depends upon the energy map of your home or office. This is determined by a flying star analysis in a traditional Feng Shui consultation.

    If you're experiencing lots of obstacles and misfortune I'd recommend that you try relocating your red objects. On the other hand if business is going swimmingly, the red objects might just be helping you along!

  • Some fantastic tips :) While I always have a clutter-free desk (of course!) I've now moved my desk so that I have a wall behind me and placed a mirror so I can see the door.

    One thing I want to know is about the colour red. Is it bad to have red in your workspace?
