Our offices and workspaces are becoming increasingly overcome by computers, devices and technology. Crystals, especially shaped crystals, not only look beautiful when styled in the workplace, but also offer us a natural and tactile distraction to negate stress and improve results.
Placed in the office, crystals adjust imbalances by absorbing excess energy and can help to deal with stress and the electro-magnetic forces from our computers and devices. It can also be beneficial for your customers and co-workers at the same time.
A large portion of our lives is spent at work and we often forget that as much as we need to give our bodies a break physically it is also important to give our brains a break mentally. This post is probably one of a number of tabs you have open on your browser or phone and your to-do list is likely packed with tasks.
Electromagnetic stress is the result of being constantly exposed to technology and electricity that ends up making us feel constantly ‘wired’ making it very difficult to wind down at night and switch off. The energy we carry with us throughout the day is often carried home with us and can easily filter into our personal lives making us sick and unwell.
Workers with moderate to high exposure to electromagnetic radiation were 3-4 times as likely to develop degenerative brain disease, such as Alzheimer’s. A good way to reduce electro-magnetic radiation is to take out some of the technology in your office and replace it with something organic and natural like a crystal. For example, remove the radio and stream music from the radio station on your computer which you are using anyway!
3 Scientific Reasons to Prioritise Breaks & How Crystals Can Help the Process
1. Breaks keep us from getting bored (and thus, unfocused)
From a practical standpoint, research suggests that, when faced with long tasks it is best to impose brief breaks on yourself. Brief mental breaks will actually help you stay focused on your task! So instead of focusing on your phone or iPad as a ‘break’ focus on a natural object such a crystal.
2. Breaks help us retain information and make connections
In fact, although our brains were once thought to go dormant when we daydreamed, studies have shown that activity in many brain regions increases when our minds wander. Use crystals for creative brainstorming and as massages to relieve workplace stress. Celestite spheres are particularly helpful for coming up new ideas and also are the perfect shape for massaging.
3. Breaks help us to re-evaulute our goals
When you work on a task continuously, it’s easy to lose focus and get lost in the weeds. In contrast, following a brief intermission, picking up where you left off forces you to take a few seconds to think holistically about what you’re ultimately trying to achieve. It’s a practice that encourages us to stay mindful of our objectives. Rolling these shapes around in your hands releases the mind from the more mundane and automatic reactions we have to almost every object we pick up these days.

Where to Place Your Crystals in your Workspace
Keep natural stones or crystals as paperweights and bookends. Change the stones to fit in with the colours that suit your mood and workspace style and palette.
Use carved stone or crystal platters and bowls on the desk as containers to store stationery or tidbits in.
Place crystals on the soil of potted plants or terrariums in your work area.
Have a favourite crystal as a ‘worry stone’, massage object or for brainstorming on your desk, workstation or even the dashboard of your car. Having a favourite crystal on hand to deflect negative energy is a great way to manage workplace stress, quieten the mind and get creative when brainstorming new ideas.
Keep a collection of stones near the window or phone as a focus for your attention. Every time you look at your stone, it will remind you to be mindful and conscious of your thoughts and actions.
Manage workplace stress with crystals by offsetting the strong electromagnetic fields created by computer screens by putting a crystal by any tech device in your office. Clear Quartz & Shungite is recommended, but it must be cleansed frequently.
