Hey Yall!! This a collab post with Yvanne!! We are sharing out favorite Ted talks. I hope you enjoy!
I am so glad there’s a platform like TED where people from a variety of backgrounds can share their stories and ideas. Whenever I’m bored or just need a little motivation, I know there are millions of TED Talks I can turn to. I love that i always learn something new from the talks which is why enjoy watching them so much.
With that being said, I thought I would share a couple of my favorite talks. The message in these talks really resonate with and they encourage me to make some changes in my life. I hope you connect with at least one, if not all of these talks the way I do. Without further ados, here are 5 of my favorite TED Talks:
How Meditation Changed My Life | Mamata Venkat
Many will find this talk very relatable, especially college students. Venkat talks about her journey of changing her major multiple times until she finally found something she was actually passionate about. This turned out to be meditation. I have been trying to incorporate meditation into my lifestyle and this talk was definitely a great motivator.
Removing Negative Self Talk | Abria Joseph
Joseph talks about the impact negative self talk can have on one’s life. He encourages us to eliminate those voices in our heads that makes us doubt ourselves. If you’ve ever wanted to do something and you’ve heard that voice in your head telling you not to because you’ll probably suck at it and make a fool of yourself. Joseph says to challenge that voice.
A rich life with less stuff | The Minimalists
I knew of The Minimalist from their netflix documentary called Minimalism. I absolutely loved this documentary so when i saw that they had a TED Talk I was ecstatic! Joshua Fields and Ryan Nicodemus talk about the importance of letting go of all the excess in you life in order to live a truly meaningful one. Very interesting.
What you are missing while being a digital zombie | Patrik Wincent
In this day and age where everyone is always hooked on their smartphones, Thore advises us on knowing when to disconnect. Instead of letting our smartphones control us to the point where we are absent in our real world lives yet overly present in our digital lives. You’ll surely feel compelled to do a little self-reflection after watching this talk. I know I did.
Living without shame: How we can empower ourselves | Whitney Thore
This talk took me on a heck of a rollercoaster. It’s sad, then it’s happy, then it becomes sad again, but finally happy. Thore’s story is very inspirational and helps us understand that we don’t have to prove anything to anyone. Live your life on your own terms.
I hope you enjoy watching these talks as much as I did! If you have any Ted talks suggestions you think I should check out, don’t hesitate to comment below.
