Finding Happiness and Health in Moments of Connection
By Barbara L. Fredrickson, Ph.D.
We all know love matters, but in this groundbreaking book positive emotions expert Barbara Fredrickson shows us how much. Even more than happiness and optimism, love holds the key to improving our mental and physical health as well as lengthening our lives.
Fredrickson redefines love not as a stable organization, but micro-moments of connection between people - even strangers. She demonstrates that our capacity for experiencing love can be measured and strengthened in ways that improve our health and longevity and introduces us to informal and formal practices to unlock love in our lives, generate compassion, and even self-soothe. Love 2.0 will reinvent how you look at and experience our most powerful emotion.
