Feng Shui Your Desk for Better Energy Flow and Productivity

Feng Shui Your Desk for Better Energy Flow and Productivity
Feng Shui is the balance of energies between the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. It stems from centuries of East Asian energy practices and works to create better energy flow within any environment. Whether you’re working from home or in an office, you can increase productivity, boost job performance, and attract positive energy by using the principles of Feng Shui for your workspace.

Here are 4 ways to simply improve the energy of your workspace with Feng Shui:

1. See it Coming
If possible, orient your desk facing the front door of your office or room. If you can’t arrange your office furniture, place a small mirror on your desk to reflect the office entrance.

According to Feng Shui principles this offers protection as well as alerts you to opportunities. It also eases stress to be able to see what or who is coming into your space.

2. Declutter and Organize
Clutter is Feng Shui’s nemesis. Clutter represents things that are incomplete, unresolved or disheveled. Find an organizational system that works for you to allow creativity to flow into your mind and space.

3. Map for Positive Flow
One of the most basic Feng Shui tools is the Bagua Map. A nine-part grid, it is the Feng Shui architect’s sacred blueprint for facilitating positive energy flow.

The Bagua Map depicts different areas of a space—a desk, a home, a building—and their correlating life attributes including their corresponding element and color. The upper left area, for example, represents abundance and prosperity. So, maybe you want to place your payroll timesheets there.

Place objects on your desk in the proper area and you can make any modest territory into a map for conquering your energetic world.

4. Create Balance Between the Elements
Introduce as many of the five elements into your space as you can. A small fountain or picture of a lake will symbolize water. Red or orange desk accessories can represent fire. A plant or flower can represent both the earth element and the desk area’s corresponding color.

Use these guidelines to make small changes to your workspace. You may see some big results right away, or change may come gradually. Either way, the most important thing is to invite joy and positive energy into your work environment.

I have a small office and I have maintained it quite well, but I am also trying to add some feng shui to improve my office aura. This post has given me a lot of ideas. I just checked more on the Bagua map and I am going to place this correctly. The Rest of the things are as per the feng shui but do you have any idea about vaping in the office? I don’t like people to smoke so my co partner brought vapor liquids from https://momentumvapeco.com.au/ and he was vaping in the office. Is it ok to do so in office? I did tell him not to do it but then he said this is just water vapour and it causes no harm. I had nothing to say then.

 I have made these changes and I must say this is such an effective thing to do. I have decluttered my table and make sure to keep it organized all the time. It has enhanced my mood to work. Desk facing the front door is something that has relieved me a lot and my creativity is flowing like anything now. I work there and when I am a little tired I just use my vitamin B12 pen (https://inhalevitamins.com/collections/all) to get a mood uplift and I am back to work with more enthusiasm. Now it is so much better than before. The post has helped a lot and I am looking forward to some more tips and steps that I can take for a better work environment.
