Barbara Fredrickson has been researching love for over twenty years. Her book Love 2.0: How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think, Do and Become presents the idea that our idea of love needs a massive upgrade.
He research shows that love is not exclusive, unconditional or long lasting. Instead, love “is best measured in seconds or minutes, not months or years.” And though love is fleeting, it is also endlessly renewable.
“Although you may subscribe to a whole host of definitions of love, your body subscribes to just one: Love is that micro-moment of warmth and connection that you share with another living being.”
