When it come to self development, TEDx the source where you definitely can find very quality content mixed with interesting point of you which make think us (well, perhaps most of us..)

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. Format was founded in February 1984 (by Richard Saul Wurman) and the annual conference series began in 1990. The main TED conference is held annually in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can.

Interesting fact that back then in 1984 first event was financially unsuccessful. But in 2006, attendance cost was $4,400 per person and was by invitation only. In January 2007 to an annual membership fee of $6,000. The 2017 conference will be $17,000 per attendee 🙂

So I would like to share with you first portion of TEDx series.

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

I would like to here your opinion!
