8 ways to Feng Shui your office space, from

Want to get your office space in line for the New Year and make sure you have a lucky 2016?

Keep energized, innovative and prosperous with these tips to FengShui your office space, thanks to

Feng Shui essentially pays tribute to energy flows from all directions. With that in mind, you need to identify the parts of your office (with your smartphone’s compass app) that will channel the best energies into your personal and business life.

Romance belongs in the Southwest:
To the southwest of your office space, hang a photo of your most loved one – your wife, husband, partner, or whoever brings the most sunshine into your life.

By keeping that special someone there, you will always remain calm in times of frustration. Paying tribute to your loved ones while you are at work should also put you in good stead for a healthy relationship at home.

Keep your Family to the East:
Hang those family portraits to the east of your office space – this will keep those that love you most in the back of your mind whenever you are trying to negotiate those big, stressful deals.

Reputation to the South:
The south side of your office is the place for all of your crowning achievements.

Here you should hang awards, degrees, and all those mementos of the business’ projects that are most praise-worthy. Bring a sense of confidence and power into the office, and more success will naturally follow.

Keep your Health & Fortune Central:
Your health is as important as your business – because if you don’t have good health, your money is irrelevant.

While it is hard to bring Feng Shui into the center of your office, for logistical reasons, try decorating your computer with crystals such as citrine and calcite. Citrine can promote the flow of energy and liveliness into your office space, while calcite should encourage good communication. Poor communication will breed unnecessary anxiety, depression, and keep you awake at night.

Children & Creativity to the West:
The west is the place to bring innovation to your office space.

If you tap this energy just right, the west will harbor creative ideas and invite alternate solutions to problems inside your office space.

Whether or not you are involved in a creative industry is unimportant – all businesses should invite innovation into their office.

The best is to bring something orange – maybe a flower, or anything orange, that is used in your business. Also consider hanging inspirational quotes from people who inspire you the most.

Wisdom should stay in the Northeast:
Keep your dreams where you can see them.

Because Feng Shui energy is delivered by thought, you should always keep your ultimate definition of self-actualization somewhere to remind you – and the best place is to the northeast of your office space.

Power symbols such as the Yin & Yang, or some other token to your deepest desires, are best kept in the northeast.

Center yourself, and control will come to those things around you too. 2016 is also the perfect time to invest or rent a new commercial property or office. See thousands of Cambodia’s best office and commercial properties on today!
