Did you know…Practicing gratitude can improve relationships
Research has shown that gratitude does more than make a recipient feel better – it actually improves the relationship for both parties. Elizabeth Hopper, PhD candidate in Social Psychology at the University of California, explains how gratitude does more than just make the recipient feel good – it actually strengthens relationships for both parties.
Feeling grateful helps us to identify people who are responsive to our needs and brings us closer to them. Expressing gratitude is beneficial, as it can change how we view our relationships and make us more willing to help each other out without expecting anything in return.
So next time someone does something nice for you, let them know how much you appreciate it! Showing gratitude can improve your relationship and make you both feel closer to each other.
