Subtle changes made to our working environment affect how we feel upon entering and also how staff and customers feel about the space and as a result, how they feel about our business.
The view from your desk affects how you feel – is it overcrowded and overwhelming?
In Feng Shui we look at every aspect of a business – the layout and orientation of your space, First impressions on entering, the physical working area staff and especially of key individuals. We look at colour, flow of movement through the space and room for expansion.
The positioning of desks within a workspace will greatly influence the comfort and, as a result, the focus and productivity of staff. Simple changes and additions can make a space more comfortable, balanced, supportive and enjoyable to work in.
The same goes for working from home, which is becoming more and more prevalent, even for part of the week. Setting up a home office space which supports the energy of the occupant reduces stress and adds to the overall quality and quantity of work we can produce.
Clutter and storage is often an issue, too much “stuff” in a space can become overwhelming and in the end causes energy to stagnate and can really limit the potential energy of an individual and so their work/business.
We look also at ways to mitigate for environmental stressors in modern buildings so that we are not overly stressed simply by occupying the space. We look at emf from electrical equipment and chemical pollution from material finishes. Again, making subtle and very inexpensive changes can radically affect our health and sense of wellbeing as we work.
