Ideas worth Spreading
TED, Technology, Entertainment, and Design, is a media organization that has been providing informative, educational, and insightful speeches on a variety of topics since 1984.
In 18 minutes or less, speakers discuss a variety of topics based on their specialties, personal or professional experiences, their passions and so on.
TED describes these speeches as, “the ultimate brain spa" and "a journey into the future in the company of those creating it."
Today the TED Conference is only one of many; others include TEDGlobal, TEDWomen, TEDYouth, TEDIndia, TEDCity 2.0, TED Talks Live, TED Salons, TED@250, and TED Institute, in addition to TED Talks podcast. You can find out more information at: www.ted.com
Two of my favorite TED Talks are:
- Brene Brown’s The Power of Vulnerability
- Jill Bolte Taylor My Stroke of Insight
Learning new information and being inspired are wonderful ways to engage in self care. If you are in the mood for either, definitely take some time to explore and listen to a TED talk.
