Feng Shui is often seen as a new age religion on a par with crystal gazing and tarot readings.

But for those seeking to ring the changes, expert Caroline O'Neill of Questfengshui.co has some top tips for overworked and unloved insurance executives.

She advises against placing your computer at the far right of your office (the marriage and relationship corner) as this would indicate that you are married to your job.

For those seeking promotion, O'Neill says you should ensure your desk faces away from a wall – facing the wall indicates that you have boxed yourself in. She adds that placing a stone or an image of a mountain on your desk will give the impression of stability in your work life.

And if you want to lower your stress levels, O'Neill suggests wearing blue or green (calming colours) to work or bringing in plants, which represent prosperity.

So now you know.
