Need a Boost in Productivity? Add Fire.

Fire is known to be the most powerful of the elements. It's aggressive and said to represent passion and excitement. This element embodies energy and should be used to boost action and productivity in your office. Naturally, red is the color associated with this element and should be used in multi-colored offices, which Lauher recommends for artists (to encourage creativity) and therapists (to appeal to a wide range of people). If the color doesn't exactly fit your decor, a lamp or candle will do. But be sure to place your fire element in the southern corner of the room.
