Apart from physical exertion and heat, sweating can also be triggered by emotions such as anxiety, fear, and excitement. This type of sweating typically affects the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and armpits. Emotional sweating is believed to be a vestigial response from our ancestors, helping with grip in stressful situations (e.g., fleeing from danger) or signaling nervousness in social interactions.
