7 Reasons Why Crying is Healthy

I was sent this email (because I'm a bit of a hippie like that) and I thought it was really interesting. It's called "7 Reasons Why Crying is Healthy" and I thought this was really interesting because I've always found when I'm crying that I feel like I'm doing something stupid; but then I read this and I was like...maybe not so much. It's actually healthy for you. I've been told that crying is all "It's good to get it out" and "not everyone has to be brave" but that never really cut it for me. 

Here are some of the more physical sides to why crying is healthy:
1. Tears help us see as they make the eyes moist (I really hate the word "moist")
2. Tears kill bacteria (I also hate the word "bacteria")
3. Tears remove toxins!
4. Crying can elevate your mood (definitely agree with that!)
5. Crying lowers stress
6. Tears help foster communication.

There you go! I bet you didn't know that! Just a little something for your night if any of you are feeling down!.
