Need a good cry Try this Trick.

Need a good cry? Try this Trick

Ever crave a good cry?  

Or maybe you feel like you have been crying for days!

Crying is a unique behavior demonstrated only by humans.

Crying also connects us to one another. When we’re young, we would cry as a way to communicate our needs- hunger, diaper change, frustration.

Just think of the last time your eyes welled up while watching Netflix or listening to the News.

Crying can be painful in the moment, but the release is amazing!  You feel much better after a good cry.

Here are 6 Strategies to Help Get the Most Out of Your Next Crying Episode… 

#1- Get comfortable in a private space that feels safe. As an option, also grab a journal, pen and box of kleenex. If you have had issues getting the tears to flow, then a good place to do this is in the shower. The shower is a comforting place to let it all out without worrying about the snot and mascara running down your face, or whether your neighbors are going to hear you.

#2 Put on music that provokes emotions within you. Music has a way of taking us back to times when we felt a similar emotion.

#3 Acknowledge and accept your emotions. So often we are used to dismissing difficult emotions, and instead focus on surviving the day. Record your feelings and why you are feeling them in a journal.

#4 Let the crying run its course. Crying can be an incredibly freeing experience, and you feel a physical release and it leaves you with a sense of clarity and renewed energy. However, too much crying can leave you feeling exhausted rather than rejuvenated.

#5 Remember to take deep breaths when you’re crying. Strong emotional experiences often disrupt breathing patterns. When this happens you breath may become shallow, quick and labored. This can lead to panic attacks, weakness and headaches. Remember to take long and full breaths in between sobs. 

#6 It’s a good idea to stay hydrated and replenish your body with lots of water after you’ve had a good cry to help keep the headaches away.  

Researchers have found that crying releases oxytocin and endorphins. These feel-good chemicals help ease both physical and emotional pain.  So next time, enjoy a good cry!  It is healthy for your body!
