Feng Shui Q & A: My Office Is In My Bedroom

Sep 6, 2012 | Prosperity

A reader asked the feng shui question: “Please can you help? I have no choice but to have my office in my bedroom how should I plan my room?”

My Answer:

You have many options! If you have no choice, you have no choice.  To make it work and remain healthy, stay open to a few ideas that you can interpret for yourself.

First of all, keep the actual desk away from either side of your bed (ie, do not let a desk be as close as a nightstand to your bed), because you need deliniated private space.

Try to put a rug under the desk or under the bed….or both… to create seperate, deliniated spaces that are grounded.

Now, make sure you keep your wires out of site, your computer off as much as possible when you are not working, and your paperwork out of site.

Last idea: create a screen.  Whether you hang a curtain that seperates the space, get a shoji screen or use another form of room divider, please create that screen if you can. You don’t need the screen there 24-7 but best to have when you are sleeping to “shut off” work.

That’s a good start!  Please let me know how it goes!

      Hi there! I wish I could answer all of these questions but it would require really understanding you & the space well because they are very specific. Go with your instincts to start because you are the one living there…. and keep in mind the way that you need to use the space…!
