10 Potentially Embarrassing Health Moments and How to Fix Them

Try as we might take care of ourselves by eating the right foods and getting the right amount of exercise, our bodies have ways of calling attention to themselves – often in embarrassing ways. You’ve embarked on a seven-day cruise only to find, within the first hour at sea, that you have motion sickness. You’ve just sat down for a sunny outdoor brunch and noticed that sweat stains have begun to appear on your clothes. You’ve finished a delicious meal with friends, and now your stomach is performing an experimental song for all to hear. These and other health issues, however minor, can be a drag. Thankfully, there are several quick fixes you turn to when your body is trying to cramp your style. Look to these top embarrassing health moments and the simple measures you can take to address them.

Sweating Through Garments


While there are several preventative measures you can take to prevent sweating – wearing breathable clothes, avoiding spicy foods and caffeine, taking over-the-counter antiperspirant medications – these don’t help much once the sweat stains have begun to appear and spread. One of the best things you can do once you’ve begun perspiring is to relax your body with some breathing exercises, a short meditation, or, if the opportunity presents itself, a yoga pose. Sweating is often caused by anxiety, and stressing about your stains will only exacerbate the problem.
