How to make hard choices

How to make hard choices | Bits & Pieces: Science-Inspiration-Fun | Scoop.it
Here's a talk that could literally change your life. Which career should I pursue? Should I break up -- or get married?! Where should I live? Big decisions like these can be agonizingly difficult. But that's because we think about them the wrong way, says philosopher Ruth Chang. She offers a powerful new framework for shaping who we truly are.
Sonia Nelson's insight:
Great Ted Talk about making hard decisions and described how values come into play when making tough choices. Looking at things as 'on a par' can change the way we approach these and moves us away from comparisons that are not easily quantified.

 and Pakistani educator Ziauddin Yousafzai reminds the world of a simple truth that many don’t want to hear: Women and men deserve equal opportunities for education, autonomy, an independent identity. He tells stories from his own life and the life of his daughter, Malala, who was shot by the Taliban in 2012 simply for daring to go to school. "Why is my daughter so strong?” Yousafzai asks. “Because I didn’t clip her wings."

Sonia Nelson's insight:

A beautiful TED talk by a courageous and humble man. He gives good insight into the difficulties faced by women and girls in patriarchal societies and what can be done to break the cycle of oppression.

How to make stress your friend

How to make stress your friend | Bits & Pieces: Science-Inspiration-Fun | Scoop.it
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.
Sonia Nelson's insight:

Stress response is critical! View stress as 'this is my body preparing helping me rise to this challenge'.
