Letting a tear or two roll down isn’t so bad. Let’s see why!
Crying Makes You Feel Good/Light
Ever felt lighter after crying for some good amount of time? That’s because when you cry, the body releases oxytocin and endogenous opioids, otherwise known as endorphins. These feel good hormones relieve you of both physical and emotional pain. And that’s why crying is a great self-soothing action!
Crying Cleans Your Eyes
Just like your room needs a good clean once in a while, so do your eyes. When we cry, the liquid helps relieve our eyes of thousands of tiny dust particles and also our tears contain a magical substance called lysozyme, a powerful antibacterial chemical that helps fight infection.
Crying Aids Vision
Just like our body can feel dehydrated after long periods of thirst, so can our eyes. When we cry we are actually hydrating our eyes which in turn helps improve our vision.
Crying Is Great For Your Nose Too
Considering our tear ducts are connected to the insides of our noses, the flushing out of bacteria and irritants is a benefit that our nose enjoys too as a result of us crying.
Crying Encourages Close Bonding
You might feel that being happy around someone all the time is the best way to connect with them. But actually nothing connects two people better than sharing a moment of crying, of vulnerability. After all it’s our tears that make us the most human in front of others.
So the next time you feel yourself choking with some tears, don’t hold in. Give in!
