Feng Shui in the Workplace - Home, Office or Hybrid

From my newsletter of May this year, "Our Homes Are More Important Than Ever," I wrote:

As a Feng Shui expert and practitioner, this has been a significant year helping people find the balance and flow in their homes and businesses, reduce their outer and inner stress despite all the challenges, and create a newfound sense of peace, productivity, and joy in their homes and lives. It has also been a significant year helping people work from home. What I (and many others) have learned is:

  • Working from home in this new environment is possible, and for many, it will continue to be necessary for the future.

  • It's never been more critical for many of us to have a proper setup to do this successfully.

  • We are redefining what it means to have a work/life balance, whatever you do, wherever you work, and it starts with balancing our life from home to work.

  • Creating a home environment to support our livelihood, wherever we work, is essential for our mental, emotional, physical, and financial health and well-being.


At the time, many companies predicted most if not all employees would be returning to the office full time in September. With return dates now postponed, some until October, others until the new year and beyond, what we know is even though some employees are going to the office, hybrid and remote work may last for two or more years to come.


At the beginning of September, I attended the RETHINK OFFICE 2021: National Online Conference to hear the thinking from top corporate leaders on the importance of the office as we go forward.


Here's what employees want and what companies are thinking:

  • Employees have adapted to working from home and like the flexibility and the conveniences of not having to travel, among other things, and having more time with their family. If they come to the office, they want to go in for a purpose, not just to go to the office. What they miss is the human connection, being with other people, and collaborating.

  • Companies are exploring what it means to create an office with a purpose—being intentional and creating an environment that supports relationships, togetherness, collaboration, innovation, and building a culture—the human connection.

  • Companies are also exploring how to create an environment that provides flexibility, emphasizing the importance of mental health—and asking about the stressors, e.g., commuting, childcare issues, and how to balance these concerns with an office providing structure and boundaries.


And always, health, wellness, and safety come first.


Whether you have your own business or work for a company, have an office at home or work, the tools of Feng Shui can help you create a work environment that is balanced and supportive, allowing you to be productive, purposeful, focussed, and intentional.


With that in mind, I collaborated with the AstroTwins to create an online course, Feng Shui in the Workplace, to share how you can use Feng Shui in your office at home or at work in an easy-to-understand and accessible way. To learn more, click here and check it out.


I also provide a 1:1 consultation to focus specifically on your workspace for those who prefer personal guidance. To find out more, sign up for a call here, and we can chat.

Everyday Feng Shui. It's all right here!


As always, I appreciate hearing from you with your thoughts or any questions you may have.


With love and blessings,

Kate
