Feng Shui for your Office
As the traditional art of living in harmony with the natural world, Feng Shui can decrease workplace anxiety by bring a newfound sense of peace and positivity to the office.
Based on a philosophy rooted in spirituality, Feng Shui is the traditional art of living in harmony with the natural world. Though the spaces that surround you change, the principles of Feng Shui stay the same regardless of if you are in the home or office.
Feng Shui is a practice that has been embraced more so by women and seeing as the home is still generally thought of as the women’s domain this is the most common area that Feng Shui is practiced. Realising the potential and positives of this creative art, companies are beginning to follow suit and this is certainly something that you can put into practice in your office.
The primary focus of a business is generally to make money and this can have some negative spiritual and energetic repercussions that can affect your day-to-day life. Looking at this in the Feng Shui way, money flows in and out of the business like the wind, touching everything is passes by. Feng Shui aims to ensure that this wind has a strengthening force, rather than a destructive one.
You can start introduce Feng Shui into your office by making some small but significant changes.
Step 1: De-clutter and re-organise
Bring a greater standard of organisation to your office by arranging resources efficiently and removing clutter. According to Feng Shui, clutter stimulates negative energy (also known as Chi) so it is important to remove any extraneous materials that are lying around your office. By re-organising and de-cluttering your space, you are decreasing your mental and emotional burdens. In our fast pace and stressful lifestyles, this can do wonders to decrease workplace anxiety. Another way to achieve this is to make sure your business matters are in order – this includes protecting yourself with the appropriate business insurances, investing in an offsite back-up service, computer anti-virus and security measures and having a plan for disaster recovery storage.
Step 2: Reposition your desk
According to Feng Shui, desks should be arranged into a commanding position of power. Where possible, desks should be positioned in such a way that the person who sits at them has is directly infront of the door, a pleasant view out the window and a wall behind them for stability.
Step 3: introduce plants
In addition to being a great way to decorate your office, plants are used indoor in Feng Shui to help create a stronger connection to the natural world. Greenery symbolises creativity and is thought to stimulate new and innovative ideas. They also contribute to creating a positive Chi, acting as a filtering system to reduce toxins.
The steps above should help you to introduce Feng Shui to your office. As you become comfortable with the above changes you can start to embrace the art a little more by choosing the right lighting and surrounding yourself with colours that promote security and grounding.
In our current society the number one health problem is back pain and other back problems. Our mostly seated activity is not healthy at all. Waterbeds () can help cure back pain because they provide excellent support for the spine. Also the waterbed heating system causes the muscles to release all tension.
