Tuesday Randoms-There's a New Trend called "Forest Bathing"

Honesty really is the best policy … especially in dating. Not feeling it with someone on a first date? Tell them. A Match.com survey found that 52 percent of singles think it's best to politely tell your date if you're not interested. (Your Tango


Stressed? It might be time for some "forest bathing." Research shows that "forest bathing," -- or, spending time in a wooded area -- is really good for your health and overall well-being. That may be why this Japanese trend is gaining in popularity in the U.S. And you don't have to spend time in a forest to get the benefits. Just being in nature has positive effects on your mind and body. (NBC News) 


How often do you eat out every week? If you are like the average American, you go out for lunch and dinner 4.9 times each week. According to the Zagat survey, people in Houston are going out to eat the most -- at 5.7 times a week. Dallas-Ft. Worth, Miami, and Los Angeles were right behind, with residents in those cities eating out an average of 5.6 times a week. (The Daily Meal)


Don't forget to tip while you’re eating out. According to the Zagat survey, diners in Philadelphia are the most generous tippers, leaving an average 20.3 percent tip on each bill. Diners in Denver were next, leaving an average 19.5 percent tip, followed by Washington, D.C. (19.2 percent), and Chicago and Boston at 19 percent. FYI: The national tipping average is 18.1 percent.

Get ready for Cheese Tea. Yep, the Cheese Tea trend is sweeping China, and International tea chain Happy Lemon is bringing the unique drink to its U.S. locations. Whipped cream and lightly salted cream cheese are combined and poured over the tea drink of your choice in about a two-inch thick layer. You tilt the glass at a 40-degree angle to get the proper combination of cheese and tea … and it’s supposed to be a taste sensation. Hey, if you like milk or cream in your tea, why not cheese?! Happy Lemon has locations in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and California, but if the drink takes off it will likely be found in tea and coffee shops everywhere. (Bustle
