Working from home is more necessary than ever. Make the most of your space with these Feng Shui Tips for Work

Garden offices are perfect for working from home

Make the Most of your space

It’s no surprise that there’s been a surge in people building garden offices to optimise any available space. Trying to have a Zoom meeting with the washing machine in the background gets old really quickly!

The good news is that when creating a new space, you have the opportunity to choose the type of energy you get: do you need to bring in financial energy? (Very few of us would say no to this!) Or perhaps you have a health related business and this energy needs to be high on your list of priorities.

Careful planning with Feng Shui can help you create the space you need and give you a valuable separation between work and home.

Feng Shui Tip: When planning a separate work space, make sure the entrance is clearly visible. The door acts as the mouth of a building, allowing the energy (and business) in.

Read the Room

You know the feeling when you enter a room and it feels good?The feel of a space relates to its energy.

That’s your connection with the energy of the space. We need to use these good spaces most so that we can conserve our own energy and focus on the important things in life. Making sure our homes and workspaces are supportive is a way to work smarter.

Traditional Feng Shui can identify this energy and harness it so that you can work more effectively.

If your workspace doesn’t give you a lift when you enter, then you might benefit from some changes to give you more support.


Feng Shui Tip: Stand quietly in a room and see where you feel most comfortable. Then see if you can use the space differently. This could mean moving so that you sit with your back is against a solid wall when you work, facing in to a room. Or perhaps that you move your seat out of line with the door to the room so that you can watch TV in a more relaxing spot. Often even the smallest change will have a big impact.


Piles of papers on the floor aren't good

Clear as you Go

Working at home or in a flexi-space often means moving paperwork around with you and having to clear it away at the end of the day.
Don’t be tempted to leave paperwork on the floor. This devalues the work you are doing. Treating your business like litter doesn’t bode well.
Feng Shui Tip: Use proper box files and put work on shelves or in cupboards. It’s much more supportive to your work. This simple change will have a significant impact on how your view your work too.
In addition, it’s all in one place and you are less likely to lose track of it!


Achieving your Goals

What you face when working should represent your future goals

In Feng Shui what you face represents your future. If you face a wall when you are working, then you could feel blocked and unable to make progress.

Feng Shui Tip: Place something that represents your goals in front of you so that you can maintain your focus.
