How to Feng Shui Your Office Desk
your office desk
Since we spend a great deal of time behind our office desks, getting the most out of your workspace is important - it should be a functional and organised space that inspires productivity and creativity.
One way to make your work environment a more calm and balanced space is to use Feng Shui, which translates to wind and water and looks to create inspired spaces in the places that we inhabit, such as offices and our homes. In this article, we are going to discuss how to feng shui your office desk so that you can enjoy a more harmonious way of working.
What is feng shui?
Feng shui is a school of thought, or a philosophy, that focuses on striking a balance in our surroundings to attain harmony with the natural world. At its core, feng shui suggests that all objects have energy forces that can be harnessed to create a more balanced environment. There are a number of principles outlined in the concept of feng shui that facilitate this idea, such as:
The commanding position
The commanding position in feng shui describes the area of a room that is located farthest from the entryway - ideally, it isnít in line with the entrance. This means that the commanding position is angled diagonally from the doorway, but it should be within the line of sight of it. This should be where you spend the majority of your time when youíre in this room. So in an office space, office desks should ideally be positioned diagonally from the entrance or door.
Bagua in feng shui refers to an energy map that covers the entire floor of interior space. It means Ďeight areasí and it stems from Taoist cosmology. In essence, each of the eight areas represents a specific area of your life, such as family, education or career. When adopting feng shui practices, itís suggested that you focus on one area at a time while you work to strengthen the energy found in it. There are several Bagua areas that your room can incorporate, including:
Family, or Zhen
Wealth, or Xun
Health, or Tai Qi
Helpful people, or Qian
Children, or Dui
Knowledge, or Gen
Fame, or Li
Career, or Kan
Relationships, or Kun
The five elements
In feng shui, the five elements denote earth, metal, wood, fire and water. These elements work together and synergise within a space to create a completely balanced area. These five elements should be implemented in your working space with Bagua in mind so that you can create a harmonious environment.
