Daily Inspiration for the Mind
Studies show that crying produces feelings of calm, relieves your emotions, and improves your mood. But, how? Tears release stress hormones, detoxifying the body. Crying, also, causes the body to produce endorphins, making you feel better! Bonus: Science indicates that crying, also, clears out our eyes and acts as a natural lubrication and cleaning mechanism.
So, go ahead. Cry it out. Don't bottle up your emotions. Don't be afraid to shed a tear or two. Let it all out. You'll improve your mental state and feel less stressed!
