Working from home can be a challenge. While it is lovely to roll out of bed and into my office still in my pajamas, staying focused – especially when you have two very silly fur balls running around- isn’t always the easiest. You can get lonely, distracted, and throughly impatient. When I am having one of those days that it seems like nothing is working and I can’t get anything accomplished, I take a break, sip a mug of tea, and adorn my workspace with a collection of crystals that are great for keeping me on track. I mentioned my setup on my Instagram the other day and so many of you lovelies were interested! Crystals for productivity are both beautiful and so very useful.
If you’re new to the crystal world, make to sure to pop over to my Beginner’s Guide to Healing Crystals post for lots of information on how they work, how to care for them, and a set that is great for beginners!
Crystals for Productivity
Clear quartz, known as the ‘mother of all crystals’ is one of the stones that you absolutely need in your arsenal. This stone is great for so many things, but when it comes to the workplace- it is wonderful at concentrating energy. Holding quartz points has been shown to augment your biomagnetic field (this can be captured using a Kirlian camera- SO interesting!) Because of this amplification everything can seem a bit clearer- a great way to rid the mind of distractions!
Tiger’s eye with its beautiful striations is known for its ability to ground a busy mind. Aiding the bearer to focus on what is at hand and figuring out what is necessary for the task at hand- especially when it comes to resolving conflicts. It is also known for helping to unblock your creative side by balancing energy- perfect for someone like me who’s work is reliant on creativity!
Citrine comes in a multitude of different colors, varying from light yellow to a dark orange. It is said to carry the power of the sun, which makes sense seeing its color- and is known as an incredibly powerful cleansing stone- so much so that it never needs cleansing on its own! Citrine enhances concentration, raises motivation, and focuses on the bearer’s self-confidence, allowing them to shine.
Aventurine is another stone that can be discovered in many colors, green, blue, red, brown, peach- but I love the green iteration for relieving workplace stress. As a comforter and heart healer (the heart chakra’s associated color is green) it helps bring issues that seem chaotic back under control. It brings an overall calm disposition and a feeling of peace!
Fluorite, especially rainbow fluorite, is one of my favorites stones, period. I love using a fluorite worry stone- I keep one in my pocket whenever my pants have pockets- to calm down my anxiety. It can relieve frenetic energy, and with its stabilizing effect it helps you to see the connection between your emotions and your physical body. It is a stone of balance and is helpful in revealing truth in complicated situations.
I love delving into the science behind why crystals work- from their energy fields (seriously- the vibrations in clear quartz help watches tell time!) to their mineral properties. I am constantly collecting books to help me dive a bit deeper- my favorites right now are The Crystal Bible and The Ultimate Guide to Crystals and Stones!
I would love to know what you bring into your workspace to create a setting more conducive to focusing, using crystals for productivity is great but I am always looking for more! Let me know your tricks in the comments below. Also, bonus: one of my favorite things to do to work through emails quickly is the mini hourglass you see on my desktop! It is only five minutes long, so a perfect tool to speed up the process!
