How Temperature Affects Our Productivity and Relationships

Temperature Affects Our Productivity

Raynaud’s sufferers know all too well the discomfort of office temperatures that send chills down our spine – and through our fingers and toes!  Now there’s scientific research that documents that temperature affects our productivity:  Low temperatures in offices (below 68 degrees) is correlated to significantly increased errors and low productivity when compared to when temperatures were warmer at 77 degrees.

Temperature affects our productivity and our relationships. We’re less trusting of people when we’re cold.  And that, too, has a negative effect on our ability to connect and interact effectively with co-workers.  Here’s the full article in Fast Company.

  1. I have not had the attention I feel I require from my Rheumatologist in Mesa, AZ. Does anyone have a great Rheumatologist they could recommend. Need assistance ASAP.as my feet hurt terribly. Have had sonograms done on legs. Veins (even though they protrude like worms) and arteries are OK. Feet are dark blue/black and deep red. I can only walk a very short distance. Doc has added Nifedipine to my Pentoxifylline and Lisiinopril……does a good job of making me lightheaded with headache and nausea.

    Any help out there?
