Monday Bliss: Balance the Energy of Your Office
Welcome to Monday Bliss. Each Monday I post an idea for something to do in your space to launch your week feeling Bliss instead of Blahs. This week, add softness to balance the hard edges in your office.
Your office space cannot serve you well if its energy is off balance. Many times, a masculine energy pervades the space. Boxy desks, bookshelves, filing cabinets, trays and other typical office accessories have straight lines and sharp corners which emanate masculinity.
Masculine energy is Yang energy. It’s active, driving, achieving – a “do-er” energy. It’s opposite, Yin energy, represents the Feminine, a “be-er” energy. Often, this energy is overlooked, left out or just plain ignored in workspaces, in favor of pure utilitarianism and results.
Bringing in some of the feminine will create balance for the space. Both are necessary. Productivity and function (masculine qualities) are important, but the ability to receive inspiration and be creative (feminine qualities) are equally important for your professional success.
Bring in feminine energy with round and wavy shapes, and things with a softer feel.
- Round paperweight
- Round rug
- Round, faceted crystal
- Round stones
- Round mirror
- Scarves for draping
- Throw pillows
- Baskets & containers with rounded edges
- Plants with rounded leaves, such as Jade
When you space is balanced, you too will feel balanced in the space. And at peace in a space that serves you well.
