Let's start from an assumption: crying is a natural physical reaction of our body to pain, sadness, fear and sometimes even joy and should not be considered as a sign of weakness.

If we block this reaction, we are unable to fully express our emotions. Crying can be liberating, but also therapeutic, which is why the Japanese give real lessons to help people free themselves from anger, pain or suffering.

There are tons of benefits of crying. Crying helps us relieve pain, release stress, improve mood, and allow us to change our perspective on that particular situation.

According to the namida sensei, tears are better than laughter or sleep and in fact offer real courses. Among these there is Hidefumi Yoshida who, for five years, has been teaching how to cry and his business is booming.

What exactly does it teach? To let go, not to repress, to watch romantic movies, to listen to nostalgic music or to read books on impossible loves, in short, training our eyes to cry because according to the namida sensei, one cry a day keeps the doctor away!
