What you should know about cryingMay 25, 2020
Did you know that tears are healing?
They're the body’s natural release valve for stress, grief, frustration, anxiety, and sadness.
If you're an empath, you might have been told you're "too emotional'. Not to worry. You're just naturally healing. Your body knows exactly what to do.
Tears help protect our eyes by removing irritants, reducing stress hormones, and tears contain antibodies that naturally protect our eyes.
They allow your eyes to clear out irritants, protect our eyes from infection, and are a part of the body’s department of defense.
After crying, our breathing and heart rate decrease, and we enter into a calmer biological and emotional state.
Emotional tears contain stress hormones. They shed hormones and toxins that build up during stress. Crying also stimulates the production of endorphins, our body’s natural pain killer and “feel-good” hormones.
Crying is also essential to resolve grief when waves of tears periodically come over us after we experience a loss.
⚠️What happens when we push back this wave of emotion? Emotions can get stuck and manifest as physical pain or fatigue.
😰Have you ever had an ongoing intense emotional situation that you need to release and it ended up turning into a serious physical manifestation?
Think of it as courageously healing depression or other difficult emotions with tears.
My suggestion? Thank your body today for this healing capacity.
