Five ways to Wellbeing

Inspirational Talks:

A lot of the links are TED talks, (if you've not yet come across this platform I warn you may loose chunks of time finding new ones!) and have great messages, learns and skills that I hope you find value in.

 

Brené Brown: The Power of Vulnerability (20 mins long)

Brené Brown studies human connection: Our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.

Mel Robbins: How to stop screwing yourself over (22 mins long)

Widely respected for her grab-em-by-the-collar advice and tough love, Robbins drills through the mental clutter that stands between people and what they want.

Caroline McHugh: The Art of being yourself (26 mins long)

Caroline McHugh is founder and CEO of IDOLOGY, a movement dedicated to helping individuals and organisations be fully deployed, original versions of themselves.

Jia Jiang: 100 days of Rejection (16 mins long)

Jia Jiang adventures boldly into a territory so many of us fear: rejection! By seeking out rejection for 100 days- from asking a strager for $100 to requesting a burger refill- Jiang desensitised himself to the pain and shame that rejection often brings.

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes you (20 mins long)

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social Psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how "power posing"- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain and might have an impact on our chances for success.
