At work, we’re either boiling, or freezing, there is no in-between and getting your office to a “perfect” temperature – one that everyone can agree upon doesn’t exist. When Jane is cold, Dave is hot, and then there’s Julie feeling perfectly fine.
Believe it or not office temperatures can actually have a significant impact on people’s productivity and ability to perform. So it’s important to make sure your temperature is right. While it might seem impossible to please everyone, there are steps you can take to create a more comfortable working environment for yourself no matter what you’re feeling whether you’re — freezing, sweating, or somewhere in between. Here are some tips on staying comfortable in unpredictable office climates.

When you’re Too Cold

Layer up

If you know that the people in charge of the temperature do a poor job of being in charge of the temperature, and if you know that the office is usually freezing, you need to layer up.

Open up curtains or blinds

Let light in. During the day, opening up the curtains or blinds near your desk to allow natural sunlight in will help to heat up your space. However, you’ll want to be sure to close them up at night in an effort to retain that heat and avoid a draft.

Sip on a tea, treat ya self

If you’re feeling a bit shivery, get yourself a hot drink, whether it’s tea, coffee, a herbal tea or hot chocolate it will be sure to warm you up from the inside, out.

When you’re Too Hot

Get a fan & open the window

We suggest these cool little gadgets they clip onto your desk and blow cool air your way, and if your windows are open it will blow cool fresh air around, and this will definetely cool you down.

Stay hydrated

Our bodies are made up of 70% water. In an effort to stay cool, be sure to drink a lot of water throughout the day. If you’re feeling sick of plain old water, turn to foods that can help with hydration like watermelon, cucumber, and lettuce.

Always carry a bobble

Tip: If its going to be a hot day, (or your office can’t get the temperature right) always make sure you have a bobble on your wrist, and if you get a bit sweaty during the day, you always have the option to put your hair up, because there is nothing worse, when you’re about to put your hair up and you realize you don’t have a bobble.
