Stress At Work

Full Spectrum Solutions Helps Relieve Stress in the Workplace



It is no secret that since the majority of Americans spend over half their lives at work, the thought of the office does not evoke the most positive images for most of us. What most people do not realize, however, is that it may be the office building itself that is causing the feelings of stress and fatigue experienced by most working people.

The good news is that Full Spectrum Solutions, a leading manufacturer of full spectrum lighting products, has the ability to transform any office into a healthier and more productive environment.

For at least eight hours a day each week, most of us work under lights we would never consider putting in our homes. Headaches, eyestrain, and foggy thinking - symptoms most commonly attributed to stress or fatigue are actually the result of the antiquated fluorescent lighting still being used in 99% of offices nearly 75 years after its invention, despite overwhelming scientific evidence that it is harmful to people’s health.

A recent Steelcase Workplace Survey illustrated the need for change with over half of the workers surveyed stating that poor lighting in the workplace triggers tired or watery eyes, and another third of office workers stating they suffer headaches from poor lighting.

Years of research has led to the realization that people depend on full spectrum light- the full range of rays from ultraviolet to infrared, with rainbow colors violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red in between - for optimal health. While full spectrum light is available in abundance in the form of sunlight, the fact that the majority of the world’s population now work indoors has created a need for a new source of healthy lighting. From this Full Spectrum Solutions was born.

Full Spectrum Solutions offers a wide range of full spectrum lighting products, including light boxes, task lights, fluorescent lamps, energy saving lamps, torchieres and neolite lamps, perfect for the home, school and especially the office. The Paralite I, the latest advancement in full spectrum technology from Full Spectrum Solutions, is also used as a non-invasive, drug-free solution to dealing with Seasonal Affective Disorder - a condition brought on by the lack of beneficial sunlight experienced during the winter months, and characterized by symptoms of depression, energy loss and irritability.

As more employers implement full spectrum lighting in the workplace, more and more companies will experience the economic success that Control Data in Sunnyvale, California experienced when they made the switch. Following their $15,000 investment in full spectrum lighting for their data processing center, Control Data’s error reduction rate increased so dramatically after the first year that their profits increased by a significant $225,000. Other companies report improved employee morale, greater productivity, better quality control, error reduction rate, and reduced absenteeism.

Michael Nevins, President of Full Spectrum Solutions states, "We are committed to providing the highest quality lighting products for the office and workplace. Research has shown these products to have a very positive effect on the work environment."

Full Spectrum Solutions is located at 712 East South St. in Jackson, Michigan. For more information about the healthy benefits of full spectrum lighting, visit the Full Spectrum Solutions web page at
