Separate your office and personal space
This is for better focus and concentration. If possible, keep your office space away from the rest of the house, especially your bedroom.
Place your desk facing the door
Facing your desk towards the door signifies holding power position. You are asserting yourself as the powerful creator of your life.
Have a solid background
Having a solid background will ensure energy remains in the room. You can have a solid high-backed chair to provide stability.
Add water feature
Hearing the sound of water while working will help to reduce stress. Adding a small water feature would do.
Surround your office with live plants
Having plants in your workspace gets rid of negative energy, like electromagnetic energy from your gadgets, and bring in positive energy. Besides that, they help to purify the air.
Avoid overcrowded view
Having a busy view in front of your makes you overwhelmed. Things like overcrowded bookshelves, artwork, wall colour, or even the view outside the window can give you such feeling. Therefore, always ensure whatever comes in your view should give you calmness and motivation.
Avoid sharp edges pointing at your direction
Sharp edges represent energy cutting, which you do not want. Therefore, avoid any sharp edges or objects pointing at your direction. If you can’t reposition certain furniture’s, then try blocking it with plants, fabrics or crystals.
Choose the right colour
Every colour represents different energy and meaning. Therefore, choosing neutral and soft colours can represent positive vibes in the office. Colours like soft yellow and pale orange represent prosperity and abundance, pale green for knowledge and growth, and blue for clarity and inspiration.
