What’s the connection between love and the brain?

You might ask, what does love have to do with the brain? After all, love is often associated with the heart. But when it comes to brain health, life fulfilment, and overall performance, it isn’t only your neurological networks that matter, it’s also your social network. And the most important social network you have are the people you love.

I’m so excited to have Jay Shetty back on the show today to talk more about this topic. Jay is a New York Times bestselling author, host of the award-winning On Purpose podcast, and Chief Purpose Officer of Calm. He’s here to talk about his new book, 8 Rules of Love: How to Find It, Keep It, and Let It Go.

We often characterize love as something you fall into. But like anything, you have to learn how to develop love in order to nurture and sustain that connection with another person. If you’ve struggled with finding a deep, meaningful connection, or you want to learn how to grow even closer to someone, this episode is for you.
