I’ve been watching countless TED talks for my capstone project (for those of you who don’t know, it is a TED talk on ADHD/treatment – tentatively titled: why my diagnosis does not define me), and I stumbled upon this one that may be of great interest to Kyla (since her project is focused on happiness) and any/all who want to be happy (which I imagine is everyone!).
In the talk, Brother David Steindly-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar, suggests that happiness is born from gratitude. And that every moment offers an opportunity to be grateful. How can each of us find a method to be grateful? *spoiler alert* He offers very simple advice to “Stop. Look. and Go.” Hope you all enjoy this (14 minute 30 second – ample time for a study break!) lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.
Another link for Kyla and others interested in how to be happier – “The Science of Happiness – An Experiment in Gratitude.”
Sending you all good vibes during these chaotic next couple of weeks.
