Swooshing deadlines. Office politics. Disappointing appraisals. Disagreements with boss. workplace can indeed be a very tough place. But it is important to not get caught up in worries, but work towards making things work. Agree or not, a happy workplace is a crucial component for a happy you. If you are happy, you are bound to attract happy people and happy emotions. Dr Rupa Batra, an International celebrity consultant of corporate vaastu, Feng shui and numerology explains, “Office is a high energy area, so we need to keep ourselves safe and away from such energies.”
Go green: Get plants that need less maintenance and place them in your cabin. Plants are excellent in absorbing carbon dioxide and keeping the environment cool. Avoid flowery plants as flowers may wither off if not take care of. Milky plants should be avoided too. In case you have a small cubicle, then you can consider bonsai. They are designed for smaller areas only.
Clear the mess: Take time out and clear the mess from your table. Clutter takes away all good energies. Not only will it impart negativity but will leave a poor impression.
Invest in a motivating piece of art: Motivation is the key in any profession. If your office doesn’t have enough motivational paintings or photo frames, buy yourself one and keep it close to you.
Feng shui tortoise and coin: Place a Feng shui tortoise on your desk as it is considered lucky for professionals. Tortoise has been given lot of importance in spirituality due to its ability to sense danger. Secondly, placing Feng shui coins in your cash box is good for business people. Feng shui coins are an age old medium to add extra luck to the cash flow. But if you are working, you can use the Feng shui coins in your drawer. It will help maintain the cash reserves.
Keep a diary: Keep a mini diary in your office bag. This diary should have your to-do list, which you should maintain daily. It should also have reminders about brisk walk during lunch break or in the evening. This is known as sharpening of the axe. When we forget to sharpen our axe, we render no result even if we put in lots of efforts.
Alarm clock for your desk: This is an extremely efficient tool in reminding you that you need to put in quality work. People remember how well you did a job, rather than how quickly you did it. Remind yourself with these alarms that your work quality can actually suffer if you submit a project in rush.
