The moments when you really should lie and which hit song just turned 10

Good Things Utah
  • On Good Things Utah this morning – Sometimes the most innocent question can give a predator all the information they need to stalk, harass, or assault a woman. That’s why Instagram’s “safety queen” Cathy Pedrayes has made a series of videos showing women the best times to lie to a stranger. We’ve all been raised to tell the truth, but when it comes to being safe there’s no reason we should feel compelled to give out personal information to a random stranger. Pedrayes’ videos do a great job at not only showing women when to lie and but how to feel comfortable doing so. Pedrayes originally started making videos about philosophy and being a “mom friend,” but soon fell into making clips centered around safety because of her unique background.
  • Plus, can you believe this hit song is a decade old? Carly Rae Jepsen recalled the moment her life changed after releasing her hit single, “Call Me Maybe,” on its 10th anniversary. “‘Call Me Maybe’ was like a lighting bolt to my little life,” the singer wrote in an Instagram post Monday. In the heartfelt tribute, Jepsen, 35, remembered waitressing not too long before her hit song was released, and the moment she was first recognized.
  • And most of us, at some point in time, have been on the receiving end of the same classic bit of relationship advice: Don’t go to bed angry. Problems fester and grow in darkness, we’re told, so don’t let resentments build up. Clear the air straight away. This chestnut has stood the test of time and certainly makes intuitive sense, but according to a fascinating new Atlantic article from Rhaina Cohen, many psychologists and therapists insist it’s also dead wrong. If you want to turn down the drama and turn up the constructiveness on your disagreements (whether they’re with your spouse or your co-founder), it’s actually best to schedule them for when your emotions subside. Reagan explains why this could really work in your relationships.
  • Finally, there is a new soft drink that claims to make you feel more sexy! It’s part of a new wave of adaptogenic hydration is hitting the market, boasting holistic, libido-boosting effects. So does it work? Reagan has the details.
  • And at the end of the show – are you a mouth breather? We’ll tell you why closing that mouth and breathing through your nose actually has health benefits you didn’t even realize! Hope you join us for these Hot Topics and more this morning on GTU.
