Feng shui for your desktop and studying

Choose the right screen saver:
It should be directly related to the work you would like to be doing. If your business is founded on trust and nurturing, such as nursing, choose a screen saver that conveys warmth and reliability, like a family photo or a picture of your pet.
You can always change your screen saver to nurture your professional goals such as choosing a screen saver with bright colors like red, orange, or pink when you need to make a public presentation. To sharpen your thinking choose a screen saver with lots of grey, white, or pastel colors. Need to gain trust a persons trust, choose an image with lots of earth tones like brown, yellow, and tan. An image with lots of bright energizing colors like green and purple is good when you need ideas for a project. If you feel you need self confidence, choose a screen saver that has lots of dark colors like black, blue, and charcoal. These colors also help develop intuition.
