Staying cool at work during a heatwave

There are not many people out there who don’t love some sun, but how do you cope with the heat when you are still working?

With temperatures getting high, we wanted to share some tips on staying cool at work.

Keep hydrated

Firstly, keep hydrated – make sure you drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, not only will it keep you cool but it will help avoid fatigue.

Ditch heavy clothes

Find something lighter to wear, it maybe less formal but will help you stay cool. Remember, black absorbs the heat! If you have long hair, you could also wear it up!

Find a fan or step outside

Head to the office if they’ve got aircon or find a desk fan. If you can’t, pop outside and find some shade – cool down then head back into the office.

Change how you eat

Try find some lighter foods for lunch – salads are full of water and can help you stay cool!

Take breaks

And finally, take breaks – being overheated and frustrated isn’t productive so try take extra short breaks when you can.
