Now we are discovering the benefits. First, it relieves stress, which otherwise might damage the heart. It also reduces manganese in your system, since tears hold a lot of manganese, which has made your body feel the sadness.
Third, you are more likely to be comforted by others if you cry. And researchers find the average crying spell lasts for only six minutes.
If you don’t cry when you need to, you are likely to feel worse and worse over time.
So go ahead, cry when you have to and you and those around you will benefit.
