HOME OFFICE:Create a Work Space at Home

Working at home has its perks (I’m not just talking java brewed the way you like it, anytime you want it). When you work at home, the only jam you have to face is the one you put on your toast and not the one you find on the road. A big meeting is attended in your favorite sweats sitting at a conference call instead of a conference table. And your big lunch meeting for the day can be walking your dog while wearing those very same sweats!

Whether your job consists of spending all — or only part — of your time working from home, it’s beneficial to your business to make your home office environment as feng shui friendly as possible.Your home is supposed to be your retreat and respite from the fast paced working world. So, if your work area shares space with your home sanctuary, it is crucial to separate the two in order to relax when your work day is done.

This home office is tucked into a kitchen nook. The plants are good feng shui, but it also needs a mirror since the worker's back is to the room.

Not all of us have the luxury of being able to devote an entire room for our home office. But if you do, you’re able to simply close the door once your work day is done. However, even if you can only give a small corner of a dining room to it, keeping the work space well organized will help you make the transition from high powered business person to tranquil dinner party hostess much easier. You may want to consider investing in a self contained office set up…converting a small closet for example, or purchasing a media desk that is disguised as an armoire when not in use.

Be sure not to skimp on your equipment. Allow yourself a comfortable chair and maybe a headset phone. Consider situating your home office within the Wealth and Abundance area of a particular room or of your entire home whenever possible. Locate the Wealth power position by standing in the entry door (mouth of chi) facing toward the interior of your space. It’s in the upper left-hand corner. Got it? Get busy!
