Is crying healthy?

Published

LONDON: Humans, being emotional by nature, have to weather the storm at innumerable instances throughout the life. Be it sorrow, misery, pleasure or annoyance, they tend to end up crying.

As per the estimates, ladies cry approx 3.5 and men 1.9 times a month. But is crying healthy? Well yes!

While crying is a natural reaction to emotions, irritants like dust, smoke and onions etc. too make eyes wet.

In this connection, experts suggest that instead of hiding the tears, individuals should cry as to make the most of its benefits such as:

  • Crying Soothes People: Back in 2014, a study demonstrated that crying may have a straight and self-soothing impact on humans, as it stimulates the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS), which makes people calm and relaxed.

 Moreover, tears release oxytocin and endorphins, which help people, feel good while reducing physical and emotional pain.

  • Mood Enhancer: Believe it or not, but crying assists in escalating people’s spirits that make them feel better while perking-up the mood.

  • Reduces Stress: In response to stress, when people cry, their tears release countless stress hormones and other chemicals. Therefore, this particular act could shrink the levels of such chemicals in the body, resulting into diminishing stress.

  • Improve Sleep: The soothing, mood-enhancing, and pain-relieving effects of crying might help individuals fall asleep easily.

  • Improves Vision and Kills Bacteria: On one hand, it could improve vision; on the other hand, it facilitates slaying harmful bacteria and keeping the eyes clean.

It is pertinent to mention here that crying is a natural response to emotional goings-on.

However, if a person cries frequently, he/she should seek professional help as it could be a symptom of depression.

LAHORE: CJP while hearing a suo motu case against the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) said today that the NAB would investigate alleged corruption in the organisation.

An assistant pharmacist who claimed she was wrongfully removed from her position at the PIC brought the matter to the attention of the court earlier.

A two judge bench led by CJP Mian Saqib Nisar today held the first hearing of a suo motu case regarding the matter at the Lahore registry.

The CJP lambasted Punjab government and PIC officials over the appointment of PIC board member Afzal Bhatti ─ who also holds a post as the commissioner of the Overseas Pakistanis Commission Punjab ─ asking how a dual national was designated commissioner and a board member of the PIC.

CJP Nisar also asked Bhatti how much his salary was, to which the latter replied that it was Rs550,000 a month. The CJP observed that the provincial chief secretary only earned Rs180,000 a month. “What makes you so special?” he wondered.

Adviser to the Chief Minister Khawaja Hasan, Punjab Health Minister Khawaja Salman Rafique and PIC head Nadeem Hayat Malik also appeared in court today.

“How did all this happen in your presence?” the CJP asked Hasan. “I am sorely tempted to summon the chief minister and show him these proceedings.”

The CJP also asked Khawaja Salman Rafique to keep noting “whatever is happening in the Health Ministry”.

KARACHI: During summers, our hair tend to stay greasy too often. In order to avoid oily scalp, people tend to wash their heads on a daily basis. However, this approach is marring their hair.

So how can we keep our hair shiny, healthy and dry in summers? Newspakistan.tv will guide you appropriately in this article.

  • Wash your scalp and roots

Individuals often do the mistake of washing the ends of their hair only while avoiding the scalp and roots, resulting into having oily hair. Therefore, always massage your scalp and roots and then wash the ends.

  • Leave’em be

In order to look smart, people tend to style their hair via straighteners and blow dry, which in return makes hair oily. So, leave your hair as it is.

  • Clean the hairbrush

Hairbrushes harbor dead skin and other debris, which, on combing, diffuse those through the hair. Therefore, keep your brushes and combs clean.

  • Stop playing with’em

Folks particularly girls tend to play with their hair sans knowing the fact that this habit could make them greasy and oily so avoid playing with’em.

  • Pick up natural products

Don’t listen to the bogus claims of the big brands as such products are stuffed with chemicals. Always pick out natural shampoos.

  • Apply coconut oil

Oiling in summers sounds bizzare. However, this essential oil could chip-in towards making your hair nourish and healthy from root to ends while eliminating oil from the scalp.
