baby crying because it has no holistic skincare

Reflect & Evolve

To weep does ease the heart. - Tswana proverb

Society tends to have us believing that to cry is to show weakness.

This week's reflection challenges this belief.

After an emotional cry, our heart rate, breathing and cortisol levels drop, indicating a biologically calmer state. Biochemist Dr. William Frey at the Ramsey Medical Center in Minneapolis discovered that emotional tears also shed toxins that build up in the body while under stress.

It has also been shown that crying stimulates the production of feel-good hormones (endorphins) that have an analgesic (pain-relieving) effect on the mind. It has been argued that only humans (and potentially elephants and gorillas) shed emotional tears.

What an amazing gift, given to humans, to ease the heart and cleanse the spirit!

This week, let's examine our relationship with our tears:

  • Do I embrace crying as healthy?
  • Is crying in front of others embarrassing to me?
  • What was I taught about crying growing up?
  • How do I judge others when I see them crying?

Then, let's all have a deep down, soul cleansing, sobbing kind of cry. The world probably needs it. 😉
