Crying is cathartic, it provides the individual with psychological relief as well as many other benefits.

We must be mindful of our bodies messages, I used to habitually ignore my body’s message to rest as I allowed ambition & aspiration to consume me...well, that was until it dawned upon me that I could not rest and I don’t mean ‘ oh I’m over tired’ kinda can’t rest but more like adrenal & kidney burnout cannot rest!

Scream, shout and do our Kim Kardashian ugly cry, that’s what!
