Today’s question for the Kwik Brain community is how do you fix a broken heart?
I’m excited to welcome today’s guest, Dr. Guy Winch. Guy’s books have sold millions of copies and been translated into 26 different languages, and his TED Talks have been seen by people all over the world. Heartbreak is a challenge so many of us face and Guy is here to talk us through it.
Heartbreak can make us crazy—there is no other experience that can make people do things completely out of character. It causes deep grief, and pain, and can cause our brain to perceive the relationship inaccurately. The good news is that by learning to override our natural brain responses, we can teach ourselves to heal and come out stronger on the other side.
In this conversation, we’ll define romantic heartbreak, explain why heartbreak can manifest like an addiction and how heartbreak affects our mind. We’ll give you some practical ideas for getting through heartbreak, and offer advice for those of you wanting to help a loved one who might be going through heartbreak.
