3 WAYS TO STOP EXCESSIVE SWEATING

6 Aug

Sweat

Even me Mr. TALLspeaking must admit when I give a presentation and I take off my jacket I do it in the privacy of my own office.   I am coming out of the closet – I sweat big time!  I have learned to control my nerves in public but my shirt takes the punishment.

I have listed some key tips (below) to help my fellow sweating friends.  What do I do to control this situation, first always have  a change of clothing in your car or office and utilize the amazing drying power of a hairdryer.  How do you deal with nerves and sweating?

Avoid Spicy Foods and Caffeine

A strong coffee or a burrito doused in hot sauce might make your taste buds happy—but they could also stimulate your sweat glands in a not-so-comfortable way.

“Caffeine and spices can activate neurotransmitters, called acetylcholine, which are located in your brain,” says Kelley Redbord, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist in private practice in Vienna, VA and Associate Professor, George Washington University, “Anything that stimulates these neurotransmitters can sometimes affect the glands that cause sweating.

Go for Prescription-Level Help

Besides hot outdoor temperatures or a killer workout, emotions (such as feeling stressed during a job interview) can also make you sweat. “Anything you can do to decrease your anxiety, such as deep breathing or other relaxation techniques, will decrease the potential stimulation of neurotransmitters that can then stimulate your sweat glands,” says Dr. Redbord. “If you often sweat a lot when you’re in a stressful situation, such as with public speaking, you can consider seeing a doctor (find one near you at sweathelp.org ) who may decide to prescribe oral medications that can help decrease your sweating in these types of situations, or suggest other treatment options.”

Think Outside the Pits

The average person has two to four million sweat glands working as the body’s coolant system to protect it from overheating. “Your hands, feet, face, back, chest, and even groin have high concentrations of sweat glands,” says Dr. Glaser. Gliding or spraying antiperspirants on these areas can help keep you dry, but skip sensitive areas such as your face or private parts.

Blushing – Just stop caring

Stop Caring about Blushing

 

 

Stop caring. Not only is your blushing much less noticeable than you probably think, it’s also helpful to remember that most people either find blushing to be cute or endearing. There are benefits to being a blusher. They include:

  • People who witness someone blush find the blusher to be more sympathetic, softening their social judgments of the person. In this way, blushing may help build better social bonds.
  • Researchers believe that people who blush are better at relationships, reporting higher levels of monogamy and trustworthiness.

Don’t feel responsible for blushing. Whatever you do, don’t feel responsible for blushing. It is involuntary. Train your mind to understand that your conscious thoughts have nothing to do with this autonomic bodily response. You are not to blame, and you are not guilty of anything. If you let go of feeling responsible for blushing, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself blushing less often.
