- Five TEDtalks recommended by The New Yorker
- Huffington Post TED Weekends
- Playlists by famous people (including Bill Gates, Bono, Ben Affleck and many others)
- The official list of most viewed talks
One of the things I definitely learned last year with my series of tips is that you become a more positive person if you are surrounded by positive experiences. Writing the tips was very positive and beneficial for me. Watching these talks has the same effect, and by writing about them I can compound the effect, particularly with the addition of your feedback. I tend to find interesting talks through Twitter and also in my iPad or iPhone app, as it has a menu for recent talks as well as one for popular ones.
Of course, I will center myself on talks that have to do mostly with health or happiness, to follow the theme of my blog. I find that these topics are of interest to a majority of people, so not surprisingly, many talks do touch on those topics.
Here's a list of talks I have already covered in previous posts:
- Ron Gutman: The hidden power of smiling. (Tip #3: Smile)
- Ramona Pierson: An unexpected place of healing. (Tip #10: Always have hope)
- Laura Carstensen: Older people are happier (Tip #17: Change your perception)
- Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter. (Tip #20: Add a bit of poetry)
- Angela Maiers: The you matter manifesto. (Tip #35: Remember that YOU MATTER)
- Paul Stamets: Is the world ready for a medical mushroom mystery tour? (Tip #49: Eat more mushrooms)
I still may write more tips too, as there are some that I certainly think I need to investigate for myself, like the role of nature on our well being, or acceptance (and resistance), and definitely would love to write one tip titled "be yourself" but I want to practice that one myself first :)
Well, what do you think? Would you like to come on board with this adventure? Do you have any talks that you would like to discuss?
As always, I love to hear your comments.
