Feng Shui Your Office
Do you work for an organization in a corporate location or satellite building? From a Feng Shui perspective, the landscape, architecture and layout of commercial buildings have many far-reaching implications for the success of that organization. But your prospects for career advancement are greatly influenced by where you work in that building and the arrangement of your own work space. While you might not be able to change your office location, here are some things you can do to help improve your own prospects:
- Your desk should be located in the command position of your office, with a supportive wall behind you.
- You should have an unobstructed view of the entrance door while seated.
- There should be more open space in front of your desk than behind.
- While seated at your desk, there should be no sharp corners from protruding walls, bookcases or furniture aimed at you and no overhanging shelves above your head.
- Your desk should be large enough to accommodate the work that you do and your chair should have a high back.
- Clear the clutter on your desk and in your office to help increase your productivity.
- Use uplighting rather than overhead fluorescents to help raise energy levels.
- Introduce organic materials such as plants, fabrics or natural sounds to offset the hum of electronics which can sap your vitality.
- The artwork in your office should represent confidence and expertise in the industry.
If you are unable to make some of these changes, start wherever you can. There are specific Feng Shui cures to correct, re-route and restore energy in both commercial and residential buildings that will make a difference in your career. Let me know if I can help.
Wishing you success and good ch’i!
