The 5 best TedTalks to Completely Change Your Life

TedTalks cover so many topics, but in the self-improvement category, there are so many interesting ones. Below you will find the TedTalks that have changed my life the most, and I believe they will do the same for you.

The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz

Barry’s TedTalk points out something that I have never thought about before. His take on our modern world and all of our oppurtunities is very interesting, and everything he says can be used to be a happier healthier person. Overall he says that the more choices we have, the sadder and less satisfied we are. The key to happiness is to… well you will have to watch it to find out. 😉

The Happy Secret to Better Work by Shawn Anchor

This TedTalk is one of the most watched TedTalk of all time, and it is no surprise. Shawn Anchor spills a lot of beans on the secret to happiness and a successful career, while being hilarious. He says that while our whole society revolves around, “if I get this, then I’ll be happy,” when it should be, “I will be happy, and then I will get this.” I highly suggest this talk.

12 Truths I Learned from Life and Writing by Anne Lamott

This TedTalk is super insightful. Anne sat down right before her 61st birthday and decided to write down everything she knows for sure. These 12 truths dive deep into our world and ourselves and open up a whole new realm of thoughts and possibilities. Please watch it, and take notes! A lot of us could learn from a 60-year-old, who has had a lot of experience on this planet.

How to Make Work Life Balance Work by Nigel Marsh

This TedTalk deals (very hilariously) with an issue many of us face. The work life balance. Through many stories and jokes, Nigel tells us about what we can do to attain balance in life. It is all about the small things. This TedTalk is short and to the point, and reveals a very helpful truth.

Inside the Mind of a Master Procrastinator by Tim Urban

This has got to be THE funniest and maybe the most helpful TedTalk I have ever watched. (Some on this list might beat it for helpfulness, but none beat it for humor and clarity.) Tim Urban uses hilarious drawings to illustrate an issue millions, maybe billions of us face on a daily basis. Procrastination. He speaks as a procrastinator, helping us through the issue. If there is one TedTalk you should watch on this list, it would be this one, especially for the procrastinators out there.

Please watch all of these TedTalks and use them to change your life! I love TedTalks and I highly suggest you watch even more than these. Thank you for reading!
