Words of Wisdom 1

I've discovered that Wednesdays seem to be my go slow day especially in terms of blogging, probably because it's the middle of the working week, life is busy and the weekend is still so far away.
I thought about participating in Wordless Wednesday blog hops which would simplify things because I'd only need a pic and I wouldn't necessarily have to write a post, but I don't have time during the week to give the attention due to fellow blog hoppers.
Besides the thing is, words are what I'm all about, so Wednesday's are now going to be my Words of Wisdom posts. They will be brief (as opposed to my normal long ramblings) and hopefully interesting. In essence I will share with you something I've discovered, read or learnt during the week.

Cry your blues away - source Australian Womans Day

-  Women cry 30 - 64 times in a year
-  Men cry only 6 - 17 times a year

Research from German Society of Opthamology found women cry mostly because they feel inadequate or when they remember past events. Men are more likely to shed tears out of empathy or due to a relationship breakdown. Men cry only for a few minutes where as women cry longer and harder.

Crying is good for us - it helps release tension and helps rid our bodies of a build up of chemicals and hormones.

There you go, I knew I was crying for a reason, because its good for me (although I'm probably on the upper scale, because frustration makes me cry and I get frustrated a lot)
