To improve your focus on tasks at hand:

  • Add a bit of yellow [Yellow has been proven to enhance memory and it's also uplifting. However, be careful because too much yellow in an office can add and/or increase mental strain.
  • Add aromas to help with focus. Add peppermints or lemon to help with extra clarity. These aromas work particularly well after lunchtime and in the late afternoon.
  • Add the metal element (metal, white, circular shapes) to enhance focus. One of my clients needed to focus on what direction he wanted his company to go in so he added more of the metal element to his environment. Specifically, he did this by adding a reflective metal paperweight and adding a bronzer picture frame around his logo.

General Inspiration

Need a little more energy and drive during certain parts of the day?
  • Add a little red. You can do this by adding red flowers, a paperweight, pencil holder or desk tray. [Red energizes and helps sustain levels of activity. However, be careful if your feeling really busy doesn't add too much red as that can increase anxiety and feeling overwhelmed.
