Right, let’s talk about not just sweat, but SWEAT. We don’t mean the “I just exercised for an hour and now I’m totally sweaty” sweat, we want to discuss the sweat that you notice at work, or when you are about to speak in front of an audience, or the kind you get in a restaurant after some seriously spicy food.
There’s not exactly guidelines for what is a normal amount of sweat because it’s different for each person but sometimes the amount you sweat can make you uncomfortable or self conscious. There’s a whole bunch of reasons why we sweat. We’ve already covered what exactly IS sweat and what its purpose is here, so instead we are going to discuss some of the alternative reasons we sweat (and it’s not just thermodynamics).
