Many individuals are working from home still, and still more of us have fully switched over to working from home for the foreseeable future. While this has been great for increased safety, it may not always be the best for everyone’s concentration. This is especially true for anyone whose home comfort isn’t what it needs to be.
The truth is that uncomfortable temperatures and poor air quality can have a strongly negative impact on your concentration while you are at home. And no amount of coffee, hot or iced, will help. However, professional services can help to address the problems with your home comfort so you can enjoy improved concentration again.
The Mental Impact of Poor Home Comfort
We’ve all had days when we were at home and discovered that the house had heated up too much without our realizing it. While this may not seem like too much of a hassle, aside from the fact that it will take longer to cool your home off once it reaches this stage, did you know that poor home comfort can also mess with your workflow?
That’s right. Factors like high heat, humidity, and poor air quality can actually mess with your ability to concentrate and get your work done. And that’s no good! Here are some issues that poor home comfort can create:
- Poor concentration: We’ve all been there—it is a hot day and it feels like your brain is moving at a snail’s pace. You aren’t imagining things! High heat can actually slow mental function and make people more sluggish, which is never good when you are on a deadline.
- Impact on mood: When people become overheated it can affect their mood too. Studies have shown that extreme heat can increase irritation and temper flares. It can also have a negative impact on those with psychiatric conditions.
- Increases respiratory problems: Have you ever tried to type out an article or email while having a sneezing fit? What about trying to lead a meeting when you can’t seem to stop coughing? These can all be signs of poor air quality and its ability to mess with your respiratory health and your home comfort.
