The Heartbreak Survival Kit

On the show today, we’re talking heartbreak. 

If you’ve been through a difficult break-up you know just how intense and painful it can be. But what is really going on in our brains when we’re heartbroken?

To help us out, we’ve brought in psychologist Rachel Samson to share her tips for building resilience and navigating the emotional ups and downs that come with nursing a broken heart.
