Being hot at work is the worst thing ever! You get irritated and snappy with co-workers and it’s a constant need to go and cool down. We have made a 6 step rule where you can keep cool at work!
- Desk fan
To be the envy of your colleagues, why not invest in a desk fan? They come in different sizes, from 6″ to 12″ and provide an immediate cooling down effect.
Call us to get the right desk fan for you!
- Keep blinds closed
To avoid the room turning into a sauna, be sure to close all blinds/curtains in the office. Doing this will block out the sun and prevent heat from entering the room.
- Wear light clothing
Make sure to stay away from heavy, thick fabrics and opt for lighter clothing, such as cotton. This will allow your skin to breathe and help to keep you cool. Wearing lighter colours is also beneficial as they absorb less heat.
- Step outside
If you’re feeling hot and flustered, a quick way to get some relief is to simply step outside and stand in the shade for a while. Once you’ve cooled down, you can head back inside and crack on with your work.
- Stay hydrated
It’s important to top up your liquids throughout the day as your body produces sweat in the heat. Drinking a cold bottle of water will provide some instant cooling for your body, as well as keeping you hydrated.
Call and stay hydrated with us!
- Open the door
It’s not nice to be stuck in a stuffy office, especially if you’re sat at your desk feeling flustered when the windows aren’t creating much of a draft. By opening the doors, whether it be adjoining to another room or an exit door, you can create a through-draft, which will encourage air flow throughout the building.
