New research finds that avoiding telling white lies can improve both your physical and mental health.
(Relaxnews) - How to be healthy? Exercise, eat your vegetables, and refrain from telling little white lies, according to a new study.
In early findings from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, US, researchers studied 110 participants who were told to stop telling either major or minor lies for 10 weeks. The control group was given no special instructions about lying. When those in the no-lie group told three fewer white lies than in other weeks, they complained less of headaches, sore throats, tenseness, anxiety, and other problems than those in the control group.
