Too busy to take care of yourself? We get it --you are busy taking care of patients, taking care of your family, taking care of just about everything else except for yourself. If you are reading this and nodding your head, then these TED Talks are for you. They offer simple ways to stay healthy -- both emotionally and physically. You matter and we hope these self-care talks inspire you to take care of your emotions, your minds, and your health.
The new breed of high-tech self-monitors (measuring heartrate, sleep, steps per day) might seem targeted at competitive athletes. But Talithia Williams, a statistician, makes a compelling case that all of us should be measuring and recording simple data about our bodies every day — because our own data can reveal much more than even our doctors may know.
Check out these TED Talks and then let us know which are your favorites and your thoughts on self-care in the comments section below.
