The Art Of Feng Shui: Top Tips To Feng Shui Your Office (Part 2)

Welcome back to the second part of our Feng Shui blog series!

In our previous instalment, we explored the foundational principles and benefits of harmonising your living or work environment, creating a positive flow of energy and promoting balance and wellbeing. In this continuation, we will look more deeply into the practical steps you can take to optimise the energy in your office space using Feng Shui.

Here are our TOP TIPS for bringing more Feng Shui into your office environment.

Position your desk to view as much of the room as possible. Ideally, you should be looking at something that inspires you. Looking at a blank wall can block your thoughts and energy, and looking out the window could distract you. You should have a view of a window or the door, but not be in direct line with them.

Flowers and plants are an essential part of Feng Shui as looking at nature throughout the day can have a profound effect on our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Biophilia, a term coined by renowned biologist E.O. Wilson, refers to the innate human tendency to seek connection with nature and other living systems. It is rooted in our evolutionary history, as our ancestors spent the majority of their existence in natural environments. Today, however, as we spend more time indoors and in urban settings, we risk losing touch with the positive influence of nature on our health and happiness. The natural green colour of plants encourages growth, both business and personal. If you want to feel the positive impact of your plants, they need to be healthy and vibrant-looking. Avoid anything sharp such as cacti, choose plants such as peace lilies, palm trees, or rubber or bamboo plants.

Water is often associated with abundance and wealth. It symbolizes the flow of resources and financial prosperity. Incorporating water elements, such as a small fountain or an aquarium, is believed to attract and enhance wealth energy in the space. Water that is constantly moving and flowing, represents the progress and the energy of life. It signifies the ability to adapt, change, and go with the flow. In Feng Shui, stagnant water is discouraged as it can represent stagnant energy, so keeping water features clean and well-maintained is important.

Integrating vertical lines and shapes creates the feeling of height and it increases positive energy. Consider adding tall bookshelves, incorporating lighting that makes the light travel upward or placing a palm tree in the corner. Another good idea for companies is to print any business materials such as business cards vertically. It’s also very important to utilise and optimise all the space in those business cards, even the back. Keep in mind that vertical positioning means growth, while something that’s diagonal or horizontal represents a fallen tree, symbolizing a business that can’t grow.

Colours have a significant influence too. Stay away from aggressive colours such as red, because they evoke negative feelings. One of the best colours is blue, as it is the colour of the sky and sea and it signifies a free spirit and relaxation. Blue is often seen in the world of business because it invokes loyalty, responsibility, trust, and reliability. Alternatively, green is a good choice too as it represents nature and balance.

A clutter-free workspace is essential for optimal energy flow. Remove unnecessary items, organize paperwork, and create a clean and ordered environment. This allows for improved focus, mental clarity, and spaciousness.

Infuse your office with personal items that inspire and motivate you. Display meaningful artwork, photographs, or objects that reflect your goals and values. Surround yourself with items that bring you joy and inspiration, fostering a positive and uplifting work environment.

While some may view Feng Shui as a purely spiritual or mystical practice, exploring its principles through a scientific lens can help us understand the underlying factors contributing to a harmonious and productive workplace. By incorporating concepts such as lighting, colour psychology, ergonomics, and biophilia, we can create a work environment that enhances our wellbeing, creativity, and productivity. Remember, Feng Shui is not about blindly adhering to ancient rules, but rather about using scientific insights to optimise our surroundings for optimal performance and balance. So, go ahead and transform your workplace into a space that aligns with both the ancient wisdom of Feng Shui and the scientific principles that support it.
