I’m a 20 year old guy and I sweat when I get nervous. My mom has told me to stay seated in the bus, but what else can I do?
A: If you’re male, take off your shirt and sit with your knees together (or cross them). You’ll feel cooler. Many men will tell you that they think it helps if their mind is occupied; anything from thinking about an upcoming exam or work problems to solving a puzzle or playing solitaire helps keep them cool for longer periods of time. Try these methods out and see which works best for you! And remember that people who sweat more than others may suffer from blood disorders (like Raynaud’s disease), so be sure to see your doctor before making changes in diet or lifestyle based on things like this.
