Do you think your stress might be putting you in an early grave? We’ve all been there. And we got to thinking – what can we do to prevent, handle and negotiate the inevitable stress in our lives. We found four TED talks we JUST HAD TO SHARE!
TED TALK – Kelly McGonigal: How to make stress your friend
Did you know that more people die from believing that stress is bad for you – than actually die from stress? Kelly McGonigal discusses how to change your thought process about stress and using it to help you instead of hurt you.
TED TALK – Daniel Levitin: How to stay calm when you know you’ll be stressed
Do you stay up at night thinking about something that hasn’t even happened yet? Have you lost your keys when you are already having a bad day? Daniel Levitin teaches us about “prospective hindsight” and how to plan ahead for your future stressful situations. Listen to this TED Talk!
TED TALK – Pico Iyer: The art of stillness
When is the last time you embraced true stillness? Are you racing around so much you can’t catch up with yourself? In a world that is constantly moving, Pico Iyer talks about using stillness to reconnect with yourself.
TED TALK – Nilofer Merchant: Got a meeting? Take a walk
We sit more than we sleep. Our lack of physical activity leads to increased risk of disease. Have you thought of walking meetings? How can you incorporate more activity into your life, so your health is no longer in conflict with your obligations. Check it out!
We hope these talks have helped you understand, evaluate and tackle the stress in your life. Wishing you a relaxed and productive day!
