How to set up your Office with Feng Shui

With Covid still causing havoc around the world, it has never been more important than now to have a workspace in your home that will support you and your business.

Forget working at your dining table. Take the time to find a space in your home that you can set up an office space that will create positive energy flow and encourage success.

The following are 5 tips to creating a supportive work space

Tip 1 – Desk Placement

You do not want your desk pushed up against the wall, as this represents coming up against problems that you need to overcome

You also do not want your back facing the door – this can represent things coming toward you that you are not prepared for, which can create all kinds of problems

The best place for your desk is in a position where you can see the door. You want to see what is coming toward you, and if you can also have a solid wall behind you, then you will be supported.

Tip 2 – Your Chair

Select a chair that is supportive. There is nothing worse than having a chair that is wobbly, or not suitable for your size.

Pick a chair that says you are the boss. One that has a large and supportive back on it

Tip 3 – Definition of space

Keep your space uncluttered. If you are using a space that is also being used for another purpose, ensure that you have a good definition of where your office space begins and ends.

For example, if you are sharing the space with your children’s play area, then make sure that your particular desk space is free from toys, and other superfluous items. If it is the spare room, ensure that the room does not become a dumping ground for everything in the house. Any clutter will have an energetic effect on your work, and becomes a distraction for what you are trying to achieve.

Tip 4 – Setting the room up for success

When it comes to setting up the space, ensure that it reflects an office. Put on the walls the certificates you have earnt from your trade/studies.

Some artwork to reflect growth, like a lush forest, provide an image of strength, sturdiness and success are also great ways to set an intention.

Depending on which gua your office is located, specific remedies would also be prescribed, however putting in affirmations of what you are trying t achieve would not go astray.

Tip 5 – How does it feel

Can you see in the room? Ensure that the lighting in the room is sufficient for all times of day.

Place a plant in the room to add in some living energy, add images of loved ones – remember you are wanting success to support those you love (whether it is a photo of your children, husband, wife or your animals).

You will be spending a lot of time in this space, so take the time to create something you want to be in.
