Given how much we communicate through texts, GIFs, and public status updates, it may seem archaic to send postal mail. But there’s science-backed power behind the act of expressing gratitude through handwritten letters. In Episode 183, Christine talks to Nancy Davis Kho about her new book, The Thank-You Project: Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude at a Time. Christine and Nancy talk about the science of gratitude, whether or not to send letters, gratitude and forgiveness, nostalgia traps, and the power of playlists.
