Feng Shui, also known as Chinese geomancy claims to use energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment.
However, you may know it as a balanced decorative style that the western world has adopted in order to bring a better flow to houses, condos and apartments.
So what in the world does it have to do with your office?
It’s no secret that the work week in North America can often exceed 40 hours a week, with some individuals spending up to twice this amount at their place of business. When one spends this much time in their workspace, it only seems fitting that they decorate and organize in a manner that makes them feel comfortable. After all, they’re spending nearly as much, or more, time in what they could often refer to as their second homes.
According to the tips suggested by The Spruce, Feng Shui can have a large impact on your productivity during a hectic work week.
Tips such as organizing the clutter on your desk, to hiding the cords from your electronic devices or making sure that you have some sort of foliage in the room are proven ways to help in alleviating the pressure of stressful tasks that one may endure during their work day.
But what about work stations that have strict guidelines as to how one can decorate?
Simple tricks such as the positioning of ones chair or desk in relation to the door, the placement of writing materials, pictures, business cards and plants in the appropriate places and even the colours of these said materials can assist in your ability to create the proper Feng Shui in a limited environment.
