You can count on most offices to contain the basics: a desk, a phone, a computer, maybe a few extras like a printer and bulletin board.
But there’s one very important component that some offices are missing entirely: a window.
Working in a windowless office cuts you off from an effortless connection with nature, which you need to stay in balance throughout your workday.
Good Feng Shui and human nature agree that the way to bring balance and harmony back into your work environment is with plants and views of nature.
Healthy plants with good Feng Shui lift the vitality of your space, add good air circulation and keep Chi energy moving as you care for it each day.
And landscape or other natural artwork provides you with the outdoor views you’re otherwise lacking, reminding you of your intention to stay connected with nature’s bounty.
Recent research shows that people who work in windowless offices are five times as likely to keep plants in their offices, and three times likelier to put up pictures of nature.
Are you surprised?
