TED Thursday: A Gameful Life

Every Thursday I will be choosing and posting a TED Talk that I think should be shared with you. I will not go at length about the benefits of it; they speak for themselves! Instead, I will provide you with the quick presentation blurb for it from TED Talk. You take it from here! This week, the TED Talk I choose to share with you is:

The game that can give you 10 extra years of life
with Jane McGonigal

“When game designer Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better. She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter. In this moving talk, McGonigal explains how a game can boost resilience — and promises to add 7.5 minutes to your life.

I am certain this will be enlightening in one way or another for you. I’ve learned some things about myself because of her; I had never heard of post-traumatic growth. My new found knowledge of that concept has brought me a new perspective. Check her book SuperBetter on Goodreads or register to the site SuperBetter and play the game.
