Emotional women will spend 1.3 years of their lives crying, according to new research from The Baby Website
Emotional women will spend 1.3 years of their lives crying, according to new research from The Baby Website.
The report shows the average woman cries for 12,012.92 hours over the course of 78.5 years. Unsurprisingly, during our first year of life we shed 3 hours of tears a day whenever we need changing, feeding or entertaining. But even as we reach our mid twenties we continue to cry for as much as 2.24 hours a week as falling out with a partner, watching a soppy film or losing a loved one upsets us. Kathryn Crawford, sporkesperson for The Baby Website says: 'Interestingly this research shows that we go full circle when we become adults, as feeling tired is one of the most common reasons adults and babies cry. 'But other more serious issues affect women in adulthood, as we’re more likely to cry about things which affect other people as well as those things which affect us – like bad news, our parents, and worrying news reports.'
