The distribution of the objects that make up the work space is very important for good energy during the working day.
Feng Shui applied to law firm offices
Productivity in a law firm is not only conditioned by the efficiency of the company's work system, but also depends on the predisposition and motivation of the workers when performing their tasks.
Office space is one of the most important aspects for employees. The distribution of the elements influences the result of the work and the psychological well-being of the lawyers, since the office is the place where they spend most of their time. If the elements of the room are placed in the right way, this space will become a pleasant place with good energy.
What layout should the office have for this to happen? Many people advocate the application of Feng Shui techniques to distribute the visual elements of their homes and businesses. Feng Shui is not a decorative trend, but an ancient technique based on finding the balance between the elements that make up a room in order to better flow the positive energy through the environment.
The techniques of this discipline will help to turn your workplace into a pleasant place with good energy. What Feng Shui does is to distribute and orient the elements of the room so that the psychological well-being of the lawyers reigns in their workplace, decreasing the stress of the activity and increasing productivity. These are some of the most valued techniques to be applied in offices.
The main characteristic that governs the philosophy of Feng Shui is order. It is important that your workspace is tidy, especially your desk. Remove useless objects from the table that have no functionality. Similarly, there are people who tend to accumulate large file cabinets or boxes with documents on the floor, but this is a mistake. If you want the energy to flow through the room, there should be no objects on the floor.
Including the five elements of Feng Shui
Feng Shui is based on the balance of space and energy generated by the five elements: earth, water, wood, fire and metal. Each element means one thing. Earth symbolizes strength and stability; water embodies fluidity and emotions; wood signifies growth; fire is related to energy and power; and metal is the element that unites all the others, representing order.
It is important to incorporate all the elements in your workspace, but you should do so in a balanced way in terms of size and quantity. You can place red objects or candles that represent fire; blue objects for the element of water; gray objects or coins for metal; brown tones and rocks will symbolize earth; and wood can be present in furniture or with plants that decorate the office.
Scenting the space
Pleasant aromas help relieve stress and tension accumulated during the workday. Incorporating essential oils into your workspace will help energy flow freely, but if you share an office with other workers, you must first make sure that these scents are not disruptive to the work activity of others.
Position the table correctly
The desk is the center of the room and the space where you will spend the most hours of the day, so you should arrange it so that it becomes a place of peace. Place your desk away from the entrance of the office to have visual control and avoid being interrupted unexpectedly. On the other hand, Feng Shui also promotes that when you sit at your desk, you should have a back that makes you feel safe, either with a large chair, curtains or a wall behind you.
Prioritizing the natural
Natural light and oxygen are two allies for good energy to flow naturally through the workspace. Position the table near a window to receive sunlight, in case it is not possible and you only have artificial lighting it is preferable to use light bulbs instead of fluorescent bulbs.
Plants are once again an ally in the search for balance and peace. Although it has been mentioned before that plants can be incorporated in the office as a symbol of wood, this technique insists on it again.
