An inspirational quote or thought jotted on a chalkboard-painted bed not only spices up the decor, but it also starts the day off on a happy note.

Peter Pearson, who, with his wife, Ellyn Bader, founded The Couples Institute in the early 1980s and has counseled couples and trained therapists ever since, says a bidding system often works only for a little while before people go back to their old ways. To tackle clutter in their home, he and Bader tried several approaches, from hiring a cleaning professional to setting up a gold star chart for Pearson. “Everything worked for a while, then collapsed,” he says. When couples try to negotiate an exchange — such as you do the dishes while your partner tackles the laundry — without having a larger goal in mind, the arrangement often breaks down over time. While it’s important to do experimental negotiations that you revisit every week or two to see how you can improve or change agreements, what’s also effective is figuring out if you and your partner respond better to verbal appreciation or behavioral appreciation.
