Is Work Desk in Bedroom Bring Good or Bad Feng Shui To Your House?

Most of us have been working from home for the past one year. How is your work productivity? Do you know that there is a difference if you have placed your work desk in the correct place?

One of the most unfavourable layout configuration is to position your work desk in your bedroom. I know many people work in their pyjamas sitting on the bed, but this is not empowering and will definitely affect productivity. Besides that, it also affects the house Feng Shui.

Why Placing a Working Desk in Bedroom is Bad Feng Shui?

There will be a conflict of energy. The bedroom belongs to the feminine energy known as Yin. It should be a restful space for you to recharge and rejuvenated. If it comprises anything that belongs to the Yang energy, it can affect the Yin energy.

Masculine Yang energy can be found in electronic devices like laptop, monitor, mirrors, exercise equipments, and anything that reminds you to be active. All these can create stress, even when you are sleeping. This concept applies to working adults and studying students.

What if I Really Have to Place the Desk in The Bedroom?

This is a common situation faced by many people because of the size constraints, especially in studio apartments. Here are some alternative methods to minimize the unfavorable effect.

1. Distance and Location matters

It is good to position the desk far away from your bed so that you can create a delineated space for your work. Always try to position your desk in the command position and facing your favourable chi direction if possible.

2. Time to Knock Off

Keep to your working hours and always shut off your computer when not in use. Make sure that you clear the desk and wires after a day of work so that you will not be reminded of work that can disrupt your sleep.

3. Separate Work and Home

If you can have a screen or room divider, it can create a clear-cut territory that separates the work and sleep. It allows you to focus on your work, instead of tempted to rest in your bed.

In conclusion, if you can avoid having a desk in your bedroom, do it. If not, just apply the alternative tips.
