SEVEN reasons sweating is awesome….

1. Eases Pain: Got a kink in your neck that won’t quit (and no one around to massage it out)? Working up a sweat just might soothe the soreness, some experts say exercise stimulates neurochemical pathways in the brain, resulting in the production of endorphins that act as natural painkillers….

2. Blasts Acne: When you sweat, your pores open and release the grit and grime that has built up inside of them. Caveat: Don’t just sweat and go. All of that dirt from your pores accumulates on the surface of your skin, so aim to wash your face three times a day, especially if you are constantly playing sports or working out…..

3. Rids body of Toxins: Not feeling the whole post-weekend juice detox plan? Hit the mat for a super sweat session instead. Some expertsbelieve that sweating can flush the body of system-clogging substances like alcohol, cholesterol, and salt.

4. Controls Mood Swings: Maybe you’ve already noticed — before a workout you’re Ms./Mr. Crabby Pants. But afterward you feel like giving everyone hugs and high fives. It seems natural that we associate feeling warm with a sense of well-being and relaxation, but there may in fact be a scientific explanationfor this feeling. Some research has suggested that temperature-sensitive neural circuits to specific regions in the brain exist and may play a significant role in controlling mood.

5. Can Prevent Colds and Other Infections: If you’ve ever wished you could walk around dousing everything in sanitizer wipes to prevent illness, you might be in luck. Some studies suggests that human perspiration contains a naturally occurring antimicrobial peptide called dermcidin, which has been proven to fight tuberculosis germs and other dangerous pathogens. It’s like an invisible force field against germs!

6. Regulates Body Temperature: The evaporation of sweat off of the skin prevents us from overheating during an intense workout . So, what would happen if you didn’t sweat? In extreme cases, the lack of sweat during a seemingly strenuousworkout could be due to a condition called anhidrosis that can lead to dizziness, a skin rash, or loss of consciousness during exercise.

7. Lowers Kidney Stone Risk: Yes, really! Research from the University of Washington found that regular exercisers sweat out salt and tend to retain calcium in their bones, rather than having them — salt and calcium — go into the kidneys and urine where stones form. Frequent sweaters also tend to drink more water and fluids, which is another stone prevention mechanism.

So…there ya have it. Celebrate in your sweatiness!
