DE-STRESS THE OFFICE WITH FENG SHUI 
by Robyn Bentley

It’s very simple. When we’re happy while we’re working, we’re more productive and this benefits the company.  Therefore, it’s in the best interest of the company to make sure employees are not unnecessarily stressed on the job because it lowers morale and decreases company productivity.  Fifty percent of American workers are not happy with their jobs (up from 41 percent in 1995). More and more people are suffering from workplace stress which is estimated to cost American companies $300 billion a year in poor performance, absenteeism and health costs. When employees are constantly frazzled and drained, it’s a bad reflection on the company and it’s just plain bad for business.  Here are some feng shui tips to de-stress the office.

GET OUT OF THE LINE OF FIRE
Don’t sit directly across from the entrance door.   Make sure you are sitting off to the side of the door.  Every time someone comes into the office, energy comes with them and hits whatever is across from the door.   Standing in the doorway, if someone can toss a ball straight ahead and hit you in your chair, energy flowing into the office will also hit you and this is very draining for you.  Low energy is bad for your mental and physical health.  When you don’t feel good at work, you may not like your job.  The pointed corners of furniture and walls also send harsh energy so don’t sit with a corner pointed at you either. 

COVER YOUR BACK
Sit with your back to a wall.  If there is activity going on behind your back and you can‘t see it, you won’t be relaxed on the job.  You’ll be more tense than you need to be and this will stress you out and drain your energy.

REDUCE YOUR EXPOSURE TO EMFS
Electromagnetic Frequencies from computers and other electronic equipment in the office lower your body’s melatonin levels.  Melatonin is a hormone that controls our mood and sleep.  High exposure to EMFs can cause you to be moody, angry, or depressed.  Turn off your computer monitor when you are not using it  (the new LCD flat screen monitors put out lower levels of EMFs). And stay five feet away from the microwave in the break room while it’s heating your lunch.

ALWAYS REMEMBER “YOU ARE NOT YOUR JOB”
Work is just one part of your life and its very important for you to remember while you’re working that you have a life outside of your job.  Make sure you support yourself emotionally  in your work space by displaying photos of the special people and pets in your life, things having to do with your favorite hobbies and activities, and any awards or credentials you may have. This kind of support system will help keep your spirits up during the most stressful days.
