Tears are secretions from the lacrimal glands in the eye. They are generated due to a variety of mental or physical issues which may or may not be controllable by the individuals themselves.
From a mental standpoint, we cry either when we are distressed about something or our happiness knows no bounds. Loosing your girlfriend, getting your dream job, failing in the exam, losing an important deal, meeting your parents after many years and so on and so forth are the kind of situations which we all go through day in and day out.
Over the years, researchers have always mentioned that crying in such situations helps release the stress built up in the mind. Moreover, seeing you crying, your friends and family always rush to support you in any which way.
From a physical standpoint, crying has always been regarded as a way to help clean the dust and other particles off the eyes, moisten them and also ensure all toxins are released. Moistening the eyes is a very important especially for those who suffer from the problem of dry eyes.
Crying can also be induced when the eyes are exposed to pollutants, noxious gases, particulate matter, gases produced while cutting onions among others.
All in all, crying is really good for the eyes from a health point of view. And especially when you are sad, it’s always good to cry so that you feel a lot lighter.
