as I have moaned about on serval occasions, my Sunday cafe job, today was the dreaded day!
I hate it in there because I work in a kitchen, and it is already so hot in there because obviously it’s a kitchen, but also it’s a garden centre, so it’s like a green house, green house effect it’s boiling. So that plus a kitchen plus it’s being hot anyway, it literally is hell there when it’s hot, never mind the actually job.
But having worked there two years nearly I have discovered so tips to stay cool. Your boss may hate it, but you need to stay cool is my excuse 😉
1- dress cool. Nothing that’s sticks, I don’t wear leggings, trousers, tight skirts no no no. I wear them baggy black jogging bottom type bottoms. They remind me a bit of Aladdin trousers. With a vest to get all the air round. But never ever ever, wear jeans! Ever! You will literally be baking yourself.
2- nothing on the head. I am supposed to wear a hat but in the weather it is just impossible. So I put my hair in two braids so I say that it is “suitable tied back” no arguements.
3- water water water. I have invested in one of the flasks that you can put hot or cold water in. They can be pricey but they are worth it promise. Keeps your water ice cold. And continue to drink it. I must have drank 3 litres at work today, but I have gone days were I haven’t and I’ve gone home with a massive headache so do it!
4- keep going outside. You need the fresh air, just breathing hot air is not only bad for you but gross.
5- cold water. Keep putting your hand in cold water, it makes you feel cool everywhere I promise
6- do not exhaust yourself. Running round like a mad man isn’t going to help you at all. Take it steady, if they moan, say do you want me to faint? Hopefully the answer is no.
Stay cool guys 😘
