Each day, we make the same choice hundreds of times: whether to lie or tell the truth.
And we ignore the profound impact these seemingly inconsequential decisions have on our brain and our life.
[Researches Argo and Shiv] found that 85% of diners in restaurants admitted to telling white lies when their dining experiences were unsatisfactory (i.e., claiming all was well when it wasn't).

You can't always tell the truth, but the more you do the happier your brain and body will be.
