Keep your cool in the office this summer
Posted by SOCKSHOP
|As the summer heat ramps up, the office can become a stifling place. Most of us in the UK aren’t lucky enough to have an air-conditioned office, so what can we do to keep our cool in the office will the temperatures outside soar?
Here are our top 5 tips for how you can stay cool in the office this summer.
|3. Switch it off
The office can mean a small room with a lot of electrical equipment packed into it. And electrical equipment means a lot of excess heat being given out. In the summer, turn off all those electrical items that don’t need to be on — although you’ll probably have to keep your computer on unfortunately!
4. Eat fresh
Eating big meals means a lot of metabolic heat expended to break down the food. This means that summer is the ideal time to eat less food, more often. Stick to fresh foods like salad, fruit, and vegetables as not only are these foods great tasting and healthy, they also have high water content helping you stay cool. Spicy food can also keep you cool by stimulating sweat.
5. Get a fan
Technology comes to the rescue with our last tip! The days of following the fan while it oscillates around the room are over with the smart range of personal desktop fans on the market. This little treat can be plugged into a USB port and blast you with your own cool current.
