A Healing Environment

At Work

Next » « Previous


Within the limitations of what you may be able to do at work, consider the following:


What color to paint the walls depends on your taste. Of course, choose a color that appeals to you.

At work, consider whether you want the color to be calming or invigorating. Then think about the colors that produce that effect in you. While your reactions may differ:

  • Red is thought to be invigorating. Some studies indicate that red increases heart rate.
  • Blue is thought to be calming and decreases heart rate.

If you get to choose the furniture, consider the color. (See above). If you only get to select your chair, select the one that is most comfortable for you as well as one that encourages you to sit properly.


Take advantage of any natural light. Remove window coverings to the extent possible.


To the extent that it does not annoy co-workers, consider music to fit the mood you want at work. For instance, play calming or invigorating music. If you use earphones, you will not disturb your co-workers.


Do what you can to avoid unnecessary noise.

If you like the sound, and if it doesn't cause you to go to the bathroom too often, consider a water element such as a small recycling fountain.

Photos and Objects

Bring photos and objects that have special meaning to you - preferably ones that are not political or religious.


Do calming visuals such as art, nature or a fish tank.
