I’m getting really good at saving links that I want to post on here and then…forgetting to post them. Below are some random, great articles and videos that I’ve accumulated over the last week or two. I think it’s always important to be reminded how there are so many facets of health. Education on brain fitness, body posture, happiness, and food intake, for example, are all part of health; all part of YOUR health.
My favorite link in this post is the “What Makes a Good Life” TED Talks video. In college, I traveled abroad in third-world countries where people didn’t have much besides a cell phone (crazy, right?), but they still managed to be welcoming and grateful for the resources they had. During those times of awareness I also read Blue Zones by Dan Buettner and fell in love with the book’s message about living a long, happy life. Happiness really isn’t about having “things,” it comes down to…well, I’ll just let you watch the video. Enjoy!
