7 Weird Things That Happen To Your Body When You Cry

Not to be dramatic, but I cry a lot. It’s not a bad thing, it just happens. I am emotional and get upset over little things like Harry Potter or seeing a cute dog and I start crying. Chances are, I’m probably doing it right now. Crying sometimes has a weird stigma, like people believing that only emotional, “crazy” women cry or that it’s a sign of weakness – it is not, FYI. So then what does it actually mean? For someone who does it a lot, I still don’t really understand it! What are tears, anyway? What makes someone want to cry? How does it actually affect your body? Can you die from too much crying (Answer: no)?! But there are a lot of things that happen to your body when you cry, and they’re pretty good to know the next time you’re watching The Notebook and water just so happens to start leaking from your eyes.

I did some investigating about crying, and I came up with some pretty interesting facts about my favorite pastime (JK. Sort of). Honestly, the human body is amazing, and we should all take a little more time to get to know more about how our emotions and mental states can actually affect our physical bodies. To start, take a look at these weird things that happen to your body when you cry so that the next time you start bawling uncontrollably, you can at least feel a little smarter.
