Welcome to The Orange Grove Blog! This is an extension of my website where I will have the space to look at health and well-being issues that can benefit people who work in offices. Since I set up The Orange Grove in 2006, my main focus has always been on looking at the office environment as I typically see a certain type of stress that is common in office workers. This ranges from physical symptoms relating to tension in the back, neck and shoulder muscles to mental issues that can cause digestive problems as well as headaches and lethargy.
The experience of being in an unnatural environment for many hours, away from natural light and air and in close proximity with many other office workers can take it’s toll on people’s general well being and vitality. However I am certainly not saying that the for all the 10million office workers in the UK that the future is doom and gloom, far from it. With just a few small techiniques that people can do which lowers stress levels so that office workers can thrive rather than just survive. It is these sort of things that we will be discussing here.
