Please visit it, and check out what it has to offer in the way of tips and advice for rejuvenating your space. Still a new site (started just January of this year) I have plans to expand it over time, including enhancing the design and functionality. Like with feng shui, it’s always a “work in progress”.

Work from home? 9 Ways to Minimize Distractions

By Jessica Hoelzel

Getting work DONE from home can be a challenge at times. Especially if you often get distracted by people, pet, outdoor noise or electronic interruptions.

Here are 9 Ways to Minimize those Distractions:

1. Work in a room that has a door you can close. And close it.

2. If you don’t have a door, fashion some separation with a tri-fold screen, bookshelf or other piece of furniture that serves as a divider.

3. Move your desk from facing out the window to facing the entry, the command position.

4. If you can still see out the window when your desk is in the command position, put a buffer in front of it. Sheers or plants still filter in light but minimize the distractions that can pull you away from what you’re meant to be focusing on.

5. Establish work times/boundaries with your family.

6. Kennel pets for short periods of time when you need intense focus.

7. Wear headphones and turn it up loud! Listen to soothing or motivating music – whatever moves you.

8. Disable the email pop-up feature on your computer.

9. Turn your phone on silent and put it in another room.

When you minimize distractions, you honor your time and your work, enabling you to be at your best.

Quote for the Day: Office Feng Shui

“The ideal office is a room of your own with a regular shape (preferably square or rectangle), natural lighting (at least one window), a solid door you can close, and a good position for your desk.”

- David Daniel Kennedy

What Can Feng Shui Do For You?

“Many of us in the West have forgotten what life can be like. We feel separate and disconnected…there is so little sacredness in our lives. When we are out of balance with our surroundings, we become physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually sick….

“Feng Shui offers hope. It offers the means to reconnect and bring the sacredness back into our lives.”

- Karen Kingston, Creating Sacred Space With Feng Shui

Quote for the Day: About Cleaning

“Cleaning creates an empty space where something new – life – can happen, leaving a free area for a fresh approach. It creates neutral ground. More than that, this is sacred work, creating hallowed ground – a space that is returned to its cleared wholeness.”

- Kathryn L. Robyn, Spiritual Housecleaning
