Why do we cry?
- 6 Months ago
Whether it's to grieve at the end of a close relationship or because of frustration due to a bad day at work, once you wipe your tears away, the world can seem like it's been put back together again. Crying may have a biochemical purpose as it's believed to release stress hormones or toxins from the body.
Emotional or stress related tears are said to help us through difficult times in several ways. They wash out the toxic chemicals from our bodies while psychologically, giving our feelings a good airing which is thought to be a healthy tonic.
