Perhaps you’ve wondered how you might improve the energy in your workspace.

Whether or not your office is in your home, these simple design suggestions will give you something to think about.

By no means are these ideas limited to just your office – you can apply this to any place in your home.

 

Do Aim for Clean, Uncluttered Surfaces

We don’t always realize how important it is to have our work areas impeccably organized, with a designated place for everything to be stored.

The tendency is to have little piles on our desk, each one representing a portion of our To Do list for the next day.

Do you really tackle each of those little piles on a daily basis?

I know I don’t.

And yet, I’m fearful of storing things away, being very guilty of an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality.

Here’s the thing, though:  according to Chinese Feng Shui, having too many things on your work surface can impede the flow of energy, or chi.

There is a lot of truth in this ancient wisdom, so take heed.

Clear up your work surfaces, and find a home for all your knickknacks and unnecessary items.

Take a look around you.

Is your furniture looking a bit worn and tired? Are the walls faded and in need of a fresh coats of paint? Do the carpets need replacing?

What about clutter? Do you live in a clean, organized space full of positive energy? Or is your living environment screaming for help, mired in negative output?

Maybe your home needs to lose the ‘extra weight’.

Many of us have the inevitable spare room, where we discard un-used, and un-needed items.

What is the energy emitted from that room? Does it weigh you down or lift you up?

Which would you prefer?

I can speak for myself, here. I know that when I enter the one room in my home that is a gathering place for ‘things that have nowhere else to live’ the instinctive urge is to turn around and walk right back out the door.

So, I ask you, what is the message your home is sending out into the world? What is your home’s aura?
