As summer ends and business starts to pick up in the fall, how can Feng Shui help your business maintain its balance to make the most of the new season’s energy?
Feng Shui’s Five Elements bring balance to your business as summer’s Fire fades. The Earth element provides stability, nourishing the Metal element of that provides a sense of organization and focus to your work.
1. Improve your ability to focus by adding Metal to your environment: a metal objet d’art on your desk, a metal sign with your business name for your office door, a round box for office supplies… (learn more about Feng Shui’s Metal element here.)
2. In Feng Shui, fall is about the harvest: completion of key projects. Be proud of your business achievements so far this year: write them down, place the list on your bulletin board, and let your successes inspire your future growth.
3. As the quality and duration of daylight decreases, stay in contact with the Fire element by keeping your office well-lit. Full-spectrum light bulbs are great for offices and will help you maintain your energy during the increasingly long days ahead.
4. Be careful to balance the elements if you have too much Metal in your office: white walls and furnishings, metal filing cabinets and desks, shiny metallic accessories. An overload of Metal may encourage a sense of perfectionism, preventing you from growing and developing new business projects.
Balance Metal by introducing healthy growing plants and/or the red accessories of expansive Fire.
Remember: Balance is always the key to good Feng Shui.
