7 Items You Need to Stay Warm in Your Absurdly Cold Office
Let's face it. Most of the time the office is just way too cold. We could violate the fire code, and place a mini space heater under our desk. Or maybe beg the office manager to raise the thermostat a few degrees. But there's a better way to stay warm.
Working in an office usually means that we are sedentary during the day, which means our metabolism drops, because our muscles aren't working very hard. Not surprisingly, we're creating less body heat. Even worse, the office temperature is usually not set high enough to stay warm.
According to a 2016 study by Nature Climate Change, office buildings typically set their thermostats based on a formula using the standard metabolic rate of men, not women.
End the all-day shivering. Stash these items in your desk, and win the battle of the thermostat.
