Is the temperature in your cubicle colder than you would like?
If you work in a cubicle you more than likely use office equipment that was designed to accommodate most “average” people, with cost effectiveness in mind. There are many items available that can be used to enhance your work area to make up for this lack of customization.
What do you do however if your problem originates at the thermostat? If you’re cold in your cubicle it can be hard to concentrate on anything else, and it’s not like you can just get up and crank the heat. Decorating your cubicle for a more homey feel can warm the heart but it won’t do much for your poor, cold hands which have to stay nimble and free to do their job.
One fix is to buy a portable heater for your cubicle to give you a bit more control over the climate of your workspace. In most cases, you should avoid this unless you’re sure it won’t be considered a fire hazard and frowned upon by management.
Keep your hands toasty while maintaining your ability to type.
A much more fun solution is to get a pair of Smoko Toast USB hand warmers. These adorable toast-shaped hand warmers are soft and squishy and are designed to keep your hands and fingers warm while you work. Plug them into any USB port, select your setting and you’re ready to forget about the frigid office air and type away in comfort. The fingers are left open so they generally don’t detract from your regular typing ability. These hand warmers look really cute when in use and can go a long way toward softening up the cold atmosphere of most office cubicles. They’re available in three tempting colors (buttered, crisp and rye bread) as well as a furry white yeti set, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find the right flavor for your personality. A wireless model is also available.
