Determine Your Element

There are five Feng Shui elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. It’s important to understand how they work toward producing and balancing a positive Chi, or energy, flow. You should incorporate all five into your office in some form, and Lauher suggests enhancing those that best represent your personality and your industry in order to create your ideal work environment. A simple test to help you determine which element fits you best is to consider your favorite vacation spot. Do you prefer the beach, the mountains, or a place with a more tropical climate?
