Is Your #Brain Being #Honest?

When was the last time you told a lie (small or big)? While you may have had your reasons for doing so, your brain has to put effort in to produce that lie. 
To reflect the ease of being honest, in my brain drawing I simply have the brain, floating. Nothing is going on within it, no specific areas are highlighted or activated, it just is. This is our brain when we’re being honest. It is what it is.
However, when telling a lie there are various parts of the brain that need to get to work. Also imagine the effort needed to sustain the lie! Details on that when I do an upcoming drawing on that. BTW, there is a National Tell a Lie Day held on April 4. I’ll celebrate honesty over telling a lie any day though.
