In this episode Susan Guthrie speaks with the creator of The Heart Hackers Club, Amy Chan, about the science and psychology of a broken heart and how to heal faster with some simple exercises and information.

She's not called the Chief Heart Hacker for nothing!  Amy Chan is a nationally renowned expert on the science of healing broken hearts and just released her instant best-seller, Breakup Bootcamp: The Science of Rewiring Your Heart.  We have all been there after a break up.  That seemingly never-ending time of emotional pain and loss where we feel that we will never recover.  Well guess what?  There are psychological and biological reasons that we feel that way and Amy knows them all and shares them with us.  Not only that, Amy has her tried and true exercises for helping you to recover more easily and faster as you hack your brain and help to rewire those circuits of pain.  

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why losing a significant other can feel like a physical pain.
  • Why you need to feel the feels in order to recover from the heartbreak.
  • The reasons why your ex is like a "drug dealer."
  • How "thinking traps" and cognitive distortions" keeps us lost in loss.
  • Why "bash the ex" sessions with friends and family can be counter-productive.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, Amy shares three of her signature exercises to help you work through the pain, rewire your brain and emerge healthy, happy and ready for love again.  In the audio podcast Amy will walk you through how to "Reframe Your Story" in order to separate fact from fiction.  Then, in a special extended version of the YouTube video of the show, Amy takes you through her "Pie Exercise" and the "Stop Sign Exercise."  These exercises are your path to recovery so don't miss them.  You can access the YouTube video version here:  https://youtu.be/n7uNWQmfYi4
