UNC psychology professor Sara Algoe writes about gratitude in this piece for CNN: “Recently my research collaborators and I tried an approach to helping people get more moments with the person they love by working with human nature rather than trying to fight it.Here’s how. We thought we could help people express gratitude to their partner when they felt it, and these expressions of gratitude would draw the couples closer by spending more time together. Why gratitude? It’s an emotion that reminds us of what we like about our partners in the first place.”
