66: Guy Winch | How to Fix a Broken Heart

Guy Winch (@GuyWinch) is a licensed psychologist, leading advocate for integrating the science of emotional health into our daily lives, workplaces, and education systems, and author of How to Fix a Broken Heart. What We Discuss with Guy Winch: While our physical body works overtime to heal itself when injured, our mind counterintuitively works against healing the wounds of emotional trauma. Guy explains why this happens and why it's imperative to intervene. The insidious lengths to which the mind will go to keep us perpetually experiencing pain and how we can take back control from our default autopilot. We can't passively count on time to heal all wounds. We need to take a more active role in our recovery from an emotional wound. If you shame someone who is coping with the death of a pet or otherwise lack the ability to empathize with their pain, you might be kind of a monster. Getting comfortable asking for help when we're recovering from emotional trauma helps others understand that it's okay for them to ask for help as well. And much more... Like this show?
