Bad day? Bad job? Bad boss? Bad health? This TED Talk gamer, Jane McGonigal, offers keen insight and simple actions for becoming more resilient, and for living a longer happier life.
She tells a personal story about a physical trauma that pushed her into a deep depression, but also inspired her to create a game that players say is making their lives better. The connections are inspiring that she makes between research about the regrets expressed by people near death and studies about the benefits of building personal resilience -- physical, mental, emotional and social.
It's 19 minutes worth watching. I felt better after seeing it. It was posted this month on the TedTalk site. (Email subscribers Watch Here.)
