As a card carrying woman, I am incessantly inundated with things I "need" to make me feel better...from wrinkle cream to the newest fashions, from sweat your ass off yoga classes to Botox injections. I'm constantly told what to do and where to do it and how much money I need to spend just so I can feel "better".  Well, what if I told you that I have something that is scientifically proven to release endorphins, can occur whenever and where ever you want and is (wait for it) FREEEEE???? Ladies....it's a good ole cry fest!

Real Talk:  I can’t get through a day without crying…can you? If your answer is yes then guurrrllll you need to try again.  I am a firm believer in the daily cry and although that may make me sound like an overly sensitive basket case I promise you that even a 30 second crying session can release enough poison body toxins to get your day back on track.  Consider me your crying sommelier…Below are some suggestions on how to get your ugly cry on because it is (in my humble opinion) the best cry of all the cries. I can just look in the mirror and make myself cry but for those of you who need assistance here is a list to help you get your ugly cry on…

  1. Watch any scene from The Fault In Our Stars.  I had to see a screening of this movie for work (ie i was alone and in a room filled with my colleagues) and within 3 freakin minutes the entire theatre was booo-hooing.  If you do not cry during this movie you are a sociopath.
  2. Listen to Bonnie Rait’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me”  – Whether you’ve had your heart broken or you have broken someone else’s heart this cheese-tastic tune will have you weeping by the chorus…ugh it gets me every time.
  3. If all else fails slice into an onion and think of something really sad…like your cable bill.
