I’m currently visiting family in South Carolina, and it is in the nineties pretty much every day we’re here. I decided today to go for a jog. Ok, well really for me it’s more like a jog/run/walk, especially in this opressive heat where jogging tends to feel a lot more taxing than it normally does.
I figured I’d definitely get a good sweat in, which is a good thing because when I travel I tend to eat a lot of salt and fat, and I figured it would help me get rid of some of the excess salt I’d been eating.
Plus I figured it would allow me to really get my blood pumping and my heart going after sitting in a car for almost eight hours to get here. We’ve also been indulging in a lot of wine and alcoholic beverages on this vacation, and I thought sweating heavily would help me get rid of some of those toxins as well.
Tall order, I know! But I just got done with the jog and I feel a lot better. I sweated profusely, so I’m sure I really got a lot of that stuff out of my system. Plus, getting your blood pumping really well helps to speed the riddance of excess toxins as well by getting things moving more quick on through and out of the body.
Sweating is your body’s way of getting rid of toxins, along with going to the bathroom and getting rid of them through bowel movements. Both ways allow you to get rid of some of that excess junk that you always indulge in on vacations so you can start feeling like your normal, lighter self again.
