Crying is good for Health

Is crying good for health? Tears are an outlet for sorrow as well as joy. Crying doesn’t make you weak or vulnerable but its a healthy expression of your emotions. Experts and Researchers say Women cry more than Men and more to it, they have all the permission to do so, while men feel crying is a sign of weakness. Crying always doesn’t involve pain, regret, failure but it also involves gratitude, love, respect, joy and freedom.

Every emotion you feel is to prompt an action or urge: fear is to run away, and love is to get closer. Being able to be vulnerable about how you feel and be able to express it is an important part of our own evolution.

 

 

A recent study from the University of Minnesota, US, found that crying improves the mood of 88.8% of people and it can also help with healing, boosting immunity and reducing levels of anger and stress. “We feel better after crying because we are literally crying it out,” says Professor William Frey, who worked on the study. “Chemicals that build up during emotional stress may be removed in our tears when we cry. Unalleviated stress can increase risk of heart attack and damage certain areas of our brain. The human ability to cry has a survival value.”

It’s also been shown that emotional tears — when we’re unhappy rather than in pain — contain higher levels of manganese and potassium. Manganese is a nutrient that helps with lowering bad cholesterol levels and potassium helps control high blood pressure. Emotional tears also contain a hormone called prolactin, which helps reduce stressful feelings and boosts the immune system. Women have more prolactin than men and their levels rise during pregnancy, which may be one reason why women cry more than men — especially when they’re expecting a baby.

When we cry, our breathing also deepens, which helps lower stress levels. When our bodies feel under attack from a stressful situation, we tend to take short, shallow breaths, which makes the body pump out the stress hormone cortisol and heightens feelings of anxiety. Deep breathing, on the other hand, reduces cortisol production and lowers stress levels.

Studies have also shown that tears can improve eyesight by preventing dehydration. So the next time you feel your bottom lip quivering, just give in to it and make sure you have a little weep. You’ll be much healthier and less stressed as a result.

Crying is good for your mind too !

Crying can also be good for us psychologically — it helps us take a step back and process what is wrong in our life. Crying is a wake-up call that our relationship, or job, or whatever, is causing us to feel upset, isn’t working for us and requires change. Emotional expression acknowledges the feelings you’re having. Emotions motivate us to empathize, coordinate and work as a unit to best survive.

Suppression is NOT GOOD !!!

Controlling, hiding tears does no good to anyone in the long run. Suppressed feelings are warning signals for the “coming flood gates and anger”. People often suppress their emotions and hide their tears thinking that would invite sympathies and make them vulnerable. One of the consequences is we sort of deaden ourselves, to suppress or not even notice we have those feelings inside. Better to acknowledge feelings such as sadness and hurt.

Feelings are not about good or bad, it’s just what is

Those who suppress emotions and cannot cry may be jeopardizing their physical health. The sorrow which has no vent in tears may make other organs weep. So cry it out once in a while, it’s good. It does not make you weak, instead gives you relief from a long term fear, regret or sadness and opens channels to new beginnings of life. Cry it out when you are alone in your room or find a place where you can be yourself and let those emotions flow.
