These 5 science-based tips can improve your relationship.

Our very own Sara Algoe, psychologist and director of the Love Consortium, an organization working to accelerate the scientific understanding of human connection was interviewed by Richard Sima, The Washington Post, on science-backed-tips for relationships.

Professor Algoe states Expressing gratitude helps bring us closer to our partner. Among relationship-promoting behaviors, the role of gratitude has some of the strongest scientific evidence behind it.
