Office Feng Shui>>>

Some offices design cubicles according to the principles of Feng Shui. The main purpose of using Feng Shui is to use the positive energy of the surroundings to enhance productivity.

If the entrance of the cubicle is not visible when working, place a mirror in a picture frame to reflect the entrance so that the people entering or passing by the cubicle are visible. For a little protection from behind, place a red sweater or a jacket across the back of the chair or for that matter even a red piece of tape will do. If one wants to use bagua, that is the map of Feng Shui in the cubicle, the door of the cubicle is to be used as the point of orientation.

One of the most basic cures for a workspace is to be sure that when sitting at the desk or computer, one is sitting in the "command position." The command position is a place where you can see the majority of the cubicle, including the entrance, and are out of line with the flow of chi, i.e. the natural positive energy. It is important to bring living and positive energy into the cubicle, this can be achieved by placing a few healthy plants in the cubicle and a fountain at the entrance. Always ensure that the work desk is clutter free. A desk lamp on the top left-hand corner of the desk can boost the finances. The telephone should be on the right-hand side, so that the people who call are more helpful. For left-handed people, the address book should be placed on the right for the same reason. The left-hand side is known to be the knowledge area, hence all reference books including dictionaries, tax law books, and encyclopedias should be kept on that side. People in the creative fields such as journalism or graphic design should have a rounded desk where as those involved in numbers such as accountancy should go for a rectangular desk with rounded corners.

Feng Shui tends to improve productivity. Doors and windows, cubicle walls, and furniture are also placed according to Feng Shui to bring in the positive energy into the workspace.
