If you are in crisis and need help to feel safe, please consider talking to someone right now.


With practice, we can increase our nervous system resources even in the most stressful conditions.

All it takes is conscious awareness and a commitment to wellbeing.

Move from overwhelm to compassion, from anger to peace, from despair to hope.
Mindful crying can shift stress, anxiety, anger, overwhelm, grief, and even numbness.


Sometimes it makes sense to step away and cry proactively. When we feel anxious or detached, our nervous system may be looking for a release that crying can provide. Listening to song or watching a video that makes us tearful can provide a safe pathway to emotional tears.

Some things to keep in mind...

Emotional tears play a vital role in helping your nervous system to regulate.

When you're feeling overwhelmed, it helps to know what's happening to your nervous system, and why crying is your body's preferred "release valve" for stress!
