a bunch of good TED talks that have been published recently, including a talk by tristram stuart on the global food waste scandal, something i’ve liked to point out many times.

brené brown’s power of vulnerability is also a really great watch, and i’m pointing it out even though it’s been published for a while now, because she has a follow-up, listening to shame. i can highly recommend watching both in chronological order.

but my favorite recent TED talk was definitely amy cuddy’s talk on body language (above) and it’s influence on our self-perception. i like her reappropriation of ‘fake it until you make it’, and i think her points are really good. you probably have heard of the smiling example before, but i think we sometimes forget the fact that our body language is not only the effect of our emotional state, but also the cause. and while you’re watching the video, you actually have about 20 minutes to boost your emotional state with some wonder woman posing!
