Best Answer

crying causes the body to lower the feel good hormones which are responsible for the overall general psychological health. So to recover the original blood pressure and the adequate hormone level, the brain sends chemical messages to the neurons to induce sleep so that the body can rest and recuperate fully, the tired eyes get an opportunity to relax as well.
