Showing gratitude can benefit our mood, especially when we do it for the right reasons. We talk with a researcher about what he’s found out about saying thank you. We also talk about the barriers to holding online classes for all students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • To Get The Most Out Of Showing Gratitude, Do It For Others

    Expressing gratitude has been tied to overall happiness and mental health, but the reasons why we show thankfulness matter. A researcher shares the best ways to think about gratitude and why using it as a self-help tool might not give us the results we hope for.

  • The Challenges And Opportunities Of Students Learning At Home

    With most schools nationwide closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a new survey shows that 41 percent of teens have not attended an online or virtual class. We look at the opportunities and challenges facing students, parents and teachers and invite you to share your experiences.
