There are some fantastic sad music and song that are so beautiful. Sad songs or sad music can help boost some healthy tears. Shedding tears can feel better than feeling sad. Have you ever laugh with tears? It's interesting because when you laugh with tears it almost feel good rather than bad.
A little summary about the health benefits of crying and tears from: Judith Orloff, M.D.
Crying is a breakthrough, a courageous way to heal depression. Crying stimulates the production of endorphin. Crying is like the body’s natural pain killer and “feel-good” hormones.
The Benefits of Healthy Tears
Our bodies produce three kinds of tears: reflex, continuous, and emotional. Each kind has different healing roles.
a) The first kind is reflex tears, which allow your eyes to clear out particles when they’re irritated by smoke or exhaust.
b)The second kind is continuous tears and they are produced regularly to keep the eyes lubricated--these contain a chemical called “lysozyme” which functions as an anti-bacterial and protects our eyes from infection. Tears also travel to the nose through the tear duct to keep the nose moist and bacteria free.
c) The third kind is the emotional tear. Typically, after crying, our breathing, and heart rate decrease, and we enter into a calmer biological and emotional state.
The Health Benefits of Tears
- Tears lubricate your eyes
- Tears remove irritants
- Tears reduce stress hormones
- Tears contain antibodies that fight pathogenic microbes
- Tears help us process the loss so we can keep living with open hearts. Otherwise, we are a set up for depression if we suppress these potent feelings.
