Day 291: life is sweet and sweaty

18 Oct

Today I gave a talk about how to live a sweet life and shared 6 Strategies to Beat the Sugar Blues.

But, this afternoon, I came to the conclusion that I deserve to sweat.

It’s been such a fundamental discovery over this year, for my body.  As an ex-athlete I love to sweat.

My body loves to sweat. 
But, sadly, I don’t sweat the way I used to.

My resting body temperature is in an arctic zone, cold enough to suppress my natural cooling mechanism. Unfortunately, it also suppresses my natural detoxing mechanism too.

So, that’s why I absolutely loved what I did this afternoon.
Sweat, sweet, sweat.

And, it didn’t take much time, about 5 – 10 minutes in the steamy sauna and I was in a full-on dripping waterfall of sweat.  It was as if each bead ball of sweat that appeared on my skin released it’s own unique toxin as it slid down my arms and legs and landed on my white fluffy towel.

It wasn’t a thai massage or bamboo bliss or hot rock massage or rosebud body scrub —  or any of the other incredibly invigorating options at this luxury spa.

Today, it was the good, old-fashioned sauna. And after that a nap in a sunny corner of the beautiful blue room wrapped in a blanket.

It reminds me that I don’t have to go to the spa to make time to sweat or rest. Life can still be this sweet and sweaty when I get back home through a few simple choices.

Just as my turn-down card reminds me tonight — I deserve the best — and you do too.

I hope you find time to sweat and rest this week.
Sweet dreams.
