Is your office a place of productivity, focus and success? Or does it feel uncomfortable, cluttered and a source of stress? Organizing your office with some simple principles from the ancient practice of Feng Shui might help set you on the path to success.


An ancient Chinese practice, Feng Shui (fung-shway) literally translates to “wind-water” in English. Feng Shui is the act of placing, arranging and organizing a space to help harmonize positive energy and deflect negative energy. By using some simple tips and practices from the art of Feng Shui when setting up your workspace, you’ll be able to create a place where you’ll love to work.


Face the Door. If possible, always face the door. Turning your back to the entrance of your office mean turning your back on opportunity and success. Sitting in alignment with a door or entrance can be distracting, and it invites negative energy from outside the office.


Place Your Desk in a Position of Power. Desk placement should be at the farthest corner, opposite the entrance or door. This will put you in a position of power, and, therefore, success.


Keep Your Entryway Clean and Clear. Never allow clutter to block your entrance. The first step the outside world makes into your office is its first, and most lasting, impression of you.


Plan Accessories to Good Advantage. Never face a blank wall. Instead, fill the space with artwork or your favorite pictures of a cherished memory or trip. Add organic elements to your space such as live plants to breathe a little life into the area. Green plants bring the energy of new beginnings and of wealth.


Organize and Declutter. Keep clutter to a minimum. Organize papers and file items away from sight. A clutter-free space results in a clutter-free mind.
