…in Your Office, this Summer
As summer temperatures continue to climb, maintaining a cool and comfortable working environment can be challenging. However, there are several strategies you can employ to keep the heat at bay. Here are seven tips for staying cool in the office this summer:
Dress for the Season
Choose lightweight, loose-fitting clothes made from breathable fabrics like cotton or linen. These materials help to wick moisture away from the body, allowing air to circulate and keep you cool. Remember, your comfort directly impacts your productivity, so dress appropriately for the heat.
Proper Office Ventilation
Make sure your office’s HVAC system is functioning optimally. Regular maintenance of air conditioners and fans can prevent summer-breaking malfunctions. If your workspace is warmer than others, consider adding personal desk fans or portable air conditioners for that extra breeze.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Regular hydration is essential in the heat, as it helps regulate your body temperature. Keep a reusable water bottle at your desk and refill it throughout the day.
If you find plain water too bland, try setting the flavour level on the Re:Drink cooled water dispenser to minimum. You will get some freshly infused water for a refreshing twist.
Upgrade to a Professional Office Beverage Dispense
A constant supply of chilled drinks can make all the difference during the hot summer months. A high quality, efficient office beverage dispenser from Re:Drink will keep drinks ice-cold and ensure that everyone in the workplace stays hydrated and refreshed. From an office water cooler to a fully stocked office fridge: ReDrink combines both and acts as your ultimate weapon against the summer heat.
Take Regular Breaks
Taking short breaks throughout the day can help you cool down and refresh your mind. A quick walk outside in a shady area or a short coffee break in an air-conditioned cafeteria can work wonders. Don’t forget your reusable bottle.
Adapt Your Work Schedule
If possible, adapt your working hours to avoid the hottest part of the day. You could start earlier in the morning and finish earlier in the afternoon, or take a longer break during the midday heat.
Remember, the summer heat doesn’t have to impede your productivity or comfort at work. Implement these strategies, and you’ll be ready to handle whatever this summer throws your way!
