WHY CRY? – Crying can help relieve stress but….

……. for Optimal Health You Need Better Stress-Relieving Tools



Story at-a-glance

  • Tears that are shed due to an emotional response, such as sadness or extreme happiness, contain a high concentration of a chemical linked to stress. One theory of why you cry when you’re sad is that it helps your body release some of these excess stress chemicals, thereby helping you feel more calm and relaxed
  • According to recent research, higher heart rate is tied to earlier death, even in those who exercise regularly
  • Compared with those who had a resting heart rate of 50 beats a minute or less, men with resting heart rates of 71 to 80 beats per minute increased their risk of early death by just over 50 percent. Those with heart rates between 81 to 90 beats doubled their risk, and a heart rate over 90 was equated with triple the risk
  • Energy psychology techniques such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can be very effective by helping you to actually reprogram your body’s reactions to the unavoidable stressors of everyday life
