We have a new reason to cry every now and again, I thik now we will begin crying happily especially those who have the desire to loose weight. This should be categorized as one of the simple ways of losing weight.
Crying has tremendous therapeutic benefits, a study by head researcher William Frey, titled Crying: the mystery of tears, published in Winston press has come with this good news of looing weight through crying.
The study explains that emotional crying will help you lose weight because it is linked to hormones that heighten your cortisol level, which is induced when you have bottled up emotions.
Don’t get yourslef too excited about this because not any crying will guarantee you weight loss, according to the study, only tears triggered by real emotions would take effect with this benefit. Scientists also advised shedding your tears from 7 to 10pm because it’s the best time when you can cry over sad movies or your broken relationships.
Some schools, businesses and organisations have started to recognise the benefits of a good cry. According to AsiaOne, emotional crying – the kind that involves a scrunched up face and rivers of mascara – can actually help you lose weight.
According to its research, the hormones involved with high-intensity emotions elevate cortisol levels, which can subsequently lead to increased fat around the abdomen if they aren’t released.
Biochemist William Frey discovered that stress-induced tears can remove any kinds of toxic substances from the body. Hence, during emotional and stressful times, the body removes such substances through weeping.
As cortisol levels, stress-induced hormones that are responsible for weight gain are released through crying, the body cannot possibly store more fat.
There are three types of tears named Basal, Reflex, and Psychic tears.
Basal tears: This tear is considered as “basic functional tear” because they keep our eyes moist.
Reflex tears: Also known as “irritation tear”, this tear is induced by environmental factors such as smoke, strong wind, or chopping an onion.
Psychic tears: Unlike the above, this type of tear is linked to one’s feelings and emotions.
It’s a proven fact that having a crying session every once in a while is good for you, so just go ahead and pour out your heart, cry yourself slim.
