A famous researcher predicts divorce with 91% accuracy

A famous researcher predicts divorce with 91% accuracy.

He invented a game to protect against the #1 relationship killer.

Here it is (in 3 minutes): Actor Jonah Hill has a new Netflix documentary (Stutz) about a famous therapist.The film details the tools Jonah learned from Dr. Phil Stutz that changed his life.

Dr. Stutz believes gratitude is the only emotion that can cut through the black cloud of negative thoughts.

Another famous psychologist, Dr. John Gottman, revealed that Contempt was the most predictive pattern that killed a relationship over time.

Contempt is criticism with an air of superiority.

But Contempt was revealed to have an antidote: Gratitude.

Gratitude is a magic emotion.

When you feel gratitude, you can’t feel anger or sadness at the same time.

Gratitude is fantastic for your health.

And it is especially powerful to receive. As Dr. Andrew Huberman points out: Counter to what most believe, the major positive effects of gratitude (which are many, significant & impact psychology & physiology) mainly stem from receiving gratitude not giving it… or from observing others helping. That’s what the data show anyway.

Either way, give thanks!

Gratitude Tennis creates a structure where everyone involved has a chance to receive it.

The game works at home with family and friends.

It even works on zoom with remote work colleagues.

With Gratitude Tennis, I’ve never seen a game finish without wall-to-wall smiles.

Good luck.

To my friends in the US, may your holidays have more gratitude and less contempt. That was my breakdown of one of my favorite science-based games. If you enjoyed it or learned something, share the post and follow me @mattschnuck for more in future!
