Do you feel stressed? Worried? Cranky or impatient? Overwhelmed?

Arrange your desk so you have a 'commanding position' in the room (where you can view most of the room, especially the entry door, while seated at your desk)
Remove all clutter from your line of sight

Create 'ambiance' by adding plants and favorite mementos
