The Science Behind Sweating: Don't Sweat It!
Most people have negative connotations with sweating- embarrassing stains, feeling sticky and the fear that others might perceive them as nervous or under stress.
The truth is your body is a marvel of nature and the 5 Millions sweat glands on your body are a testament to that! Sweating regulates the body’s temperature, expels toxins and helps maintain proper salinity levels. Realising these apparent benefits of sweating is the first step to viewing sweating as a positive and healthy function.
Here is the WHAT, WHEN, WHERE & WHY of sweating:
Exercise gets the body into overdrive and the body activates the Apocrine glands to release large quantity of sweat to rapidly cool down.
Lack of airflow creates a “hot” micro-climate in certain parts of the body. This conducive atmosphere triggers your Apocrine glands. Wear loose clothing that allows your body to breathe!
When you stress you release adrenaline in your system which in turn activates your Apocrine glands leading to underarm sweating. Look at sweating as a powerful mindfulness tool which presents an opportunity to relax and get back in control of the situation!
Step out into the hot sun on a summer morning and your Apocrine glands are immediately activated to keep your body temperature at a safe and controlled level.
