Happy Sunday my dear readers, I hope you are all having a lovely and relaxing morning.
Lately, I have been feeling like I haven’t been making the most of my time, as you know, I struggle with simply being a lot. I have been wondering how to feel like I have accomplished something whilst still being mindful of the present. And I have found something. TED talks.
TED in a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1984 and covers short powerful talks covering all topics and communities. Their mission is to spread ideas and spark conversations. They do this through conferences, independent talk series or through education series.
Many of you may already watch the content of the speeches, found inspirational stories or new knowledge. I certainly have. There are so many on innumerable topics. Some are more personal than others.
In my own experience, I have found that they are engaging, intriguing and thought-provoking. Watching a couple every so often has helped me to feel like I have done something to activate my brain and my mind that day whilst being still in myself. The joy of this kind of content is that it is accessible and can be consumed at any time, such as when doing housework, homework or coursework, even when just laying in bed feeling a little low or restless.
A short one I particularly like is this one. Adam Liepzig was rather light-hearted but quite inspirational at the time and helped me to place my life purpose into perspective.
If you have any TED recommendations, let me know!
