Study says keeping secrets can make you weaker


You've likely heard that keeping Secrets can make you emotionally weak but a new research in the Journal of Experimental Psychology suggests that it may also be a physical encumbrance. The research suggests that when you're holding onto a secret you can't judge spatial distance and you rate physical task more difficult than they really are.

In several experiments the researchers found that keeping big secrets like infidelity made people less likely to perform heavy tasks and they lost the ability to accurately judge distance.

It seems to suggest that secrets do indeed weigh you down. The next time you are holding to a big secret you might consider shying away from jogging up any large hills or helping a friend with moving until you let the secret go.
