Honesty pays at the end seems to be true when one comes across this study being taken by a group of researchers from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. The study has concluded that people, who are honest, are not only physically, but they are mentally, also healthy.
In order to reach at the above given conclusion, the study researchers assessed 110 people, who were aged between 18 and 71. The study continued for 10 weeks, and in all these weeks, they were asked to visit a laboratory, so that they could complete a polygraph test, which will indicate number of lies they have spoken in a week.
"Recent evidence indicates that Americans average about 11 lies per week. We wanted to find out if living more honestly can actually cause better health", said lead author of the study Anita Kelly.
After assessing the experiment for 10 weeks, it was found that people can avoid speaking lies, and in return could improve quality of their life. It was found that when people obeyed Anita and spoke less lies then quality of their lives improved a lot. They witnessed a sense of lightness in their mind and felt happy within, which made them contended.
