It is freezing! You can’t feel your fingers, the warmth of summer is all but gone.
Except you’re not even outside – you’re sitting at your desk. The office temperature always seems to sit at a temperature that’s most uncomfortable for people. You’d change the thermostat yourself, expect Brian from marketing sits closer – he’s notorious for his hot blood in the office – personally he’s not sure how anyone can be cold, judging by how often he turns the temperature down.
So here are five ways those cold-blooded ones amongst us can keep warm in the chillier months.
Working in an office, we all need to have our hands free to type and answer calls. Keep your delicate mitts warm and flexible with fingerless gloves. Whilst keeping your hands snug and warm, you are able to still write and type and do all those other tasks too.
You may have already seen an outbreak of heaters appearing in the office. From when people arrive at 07:00 until 17:00, they’re on full blast. [Definitely doing the job, because you’ll hear about it when it’s unplugged]. You may need to get them signed off first but you can check out a great range here – https://www.thermogroup.com.au/space-heating/products/?filter=all¤t=1
Dunno kind of seems obvious but quite often people that are cold have minimal clothing.
I shouldn’t have to tell you this – layer up!
Really people – jackets, cardigans and jumpers weren’t made for the fun of it, so invest in one of the three (or all three, we won’t judge).
Mind the toes…
Our feet play a vital role in regulating body temperature. Like our hands, they have a large surface area and lots of blood vessels. Start with the basics; socks. Opt for woolen as wool is one of the warmest materials that you can find and they aren’t too bulky so they fit with almost any shoes.
Beat cold toes with a heated under-desk carpet mat. Ideal for management of temperature at a personal level these little beauties put out just the right amount of heat to warm your toes without making them too hot – ideal!

OK – the final idea on our list. A hot beverage. Keep drinking hot tea, a cup of joe or hot chocolate. Not only will it warm you up, but staying hydrated is pretty key when the temperature is a little less than ideal.
STAY WARM, OFFICE DWELLERS! SPRING WILL COME AGAIN… UMM, SOMEDAY.
