Your most effective position is dealing with the door with your back versus a solid wall.

Likewise facing the door, which is the entrance of chi, is replicating and empowering. Things to prevent: back to the door, back to a corner, desk under a window and desk in between a window and door. If moving your desk isn’t an alternative utilize a little mirror and location it so when you’re working you can see the entrance to your office when your back is turned.

Balance the elements

Often offices are repainted in pale and washed out colors with rough fluorescent lighting. This creates a very yang or over-simulating environment heavy in metal and fire aspects. Bring your area into balance by including missing elements. By bringing in darker and softer versions of earth, wood and water the space will end up being less frenetic. Try adding these aspects with color: deeper browns and ochre for earth and rich environment-friendlies for wood, or water with the color black.

Using these colors you can arrange your files according to the aspects. As an example for high-priority projects use fire (red) and for all files that support that task use Wood (green) files. Wood feeds fire.
