How To Regulate Your Body When Your Office Is Either Too Hot Or Too Cold

Don’t you hate when it’s low temperatures outside but once you get into your office you have to rip off layers because it’s blazing hot? Or when it’s 90 degrees outside but your office is like the tundra. Either way is completely uncomfortable and it doesn’t make for a productive work environment if you’re trying to get yourself situated all day long.

Grant Bue, a NASA aerospace technologist, gave the Wall Street Journel tips on how to overcome this issue and regulate your body temperature.

Stay warm in a cold office: Mr. Bue says to cover your neck with a scarf because, “There’s good blood flow to the skin in that region.” A scarf will “limit the heat that you’re radiating and convecting out from the neck.” He also says to cover your ears and suggests wearing big headphones because they act like ear muffs. Also, get up every so often and take a walk to keep the blood flowing in your body.

Stay cool in a warm office: Mr. Bue recommends pointing a fan at your head because this is “where your body is trying to reject the most heat.” Cool off your head with a light breeze!

I might actually consider the whole fan idea…
