Space and Clutter
Less of untidy clutter and open space definitely enhance a mood of an individual. Entering the office with tidy and clear line of sight, reduce the stress level of employees.

People will start to feel annoy after long period of time.

Bring in alive green plants to every corner of the office. Plants emit positive energy all the time and some of them even purify radiation and air. Green plants also help create a pretty looking environment, pleasing the employees and even walk in client. Of course green plants have to be taken well care to have these kind of results.

Angled or Pointing Arrow Elements
Reduce angled furniture or any pointing arrow elements that directly point towards an individual. In Feng Shui this is an attacking energy that will weaken or deplete one’s energy. Do not sit facing these elements or not to place one around the employees working area.
Enhance the emotions and experience by introducing more color and artwork to seduce someone’s vision. Providing them an interesting and attractive to increase the inspiring mood to work. Google’s office has colorful features around the area as same as it’s logo. Color and interesting artwork makes people feel happy and also reduces anxiety and stress level.
Also do adjust the lighting intensity to a comfort level. High temperature lighting will make people fatigue after long period of time, too low will put employees at sleep. Always choose the suitable level at different activity area.
