why you should sweat once a day

sweat out toxins
How do you take the time to listen to your body and sweat?

How many times have you seen the line, “Sweat Once a Day”? It's on our manifesto poster, our reusable shoppers, in our store’s display windows and used daily by people in our company to remind each other to get out there and sweat a little.

lululemon manifesto
A dose of daily inspiration from our lululemon manifesto.

I used to hate sweating. The second my body started to reach the point of perspiration on the treadmill, I would jump off and call it a day. I robbed myself of a true workout session and was okay with it.

Then I was introduced to lululemon athetica and a group of people who showed me how to sweat and embrace it. And guess what? Now I enjoy it! Crazy to think back to three years ago at the girl who wouldn’t be caught dead sweating.

I'm no doctor, but I know the benefit of a good work out.

why you should sweat once a day

  • it keeps your body cool
  • releases toxins
  • sweat's naturally good for the skin, softening and smoothing it
  • proof that you're burning calories

So whether you run your heart out, sit in the sauna, dance like no one is watching or hold your chaturangas a little longer, embrace the moment and enjoy your sweat for the day.

Ever since I started working out hard (running, yoga, walking, biking, dancing), I have noticed that my skin glows like… well, like a preggo’s! ;)

Great message. I agree everyone should sweat once a day. I love to sweat with yoga mainly and almost always in lululemon of course :).

Yoga! Or biking. Or hiking. Hopefully not just walking outside and bursting into a sweat bomb because of the humidity.

Wonderful post Shawna. I love this exploration of the manifesto themes – this one being my absolute favourite. I’m a hot yoga geek all the way!
