TED Talk Tuesday!

I'm a big fan of TED Talks.  If you aren't familiar with these, they are short lectures from brilliant people on whatever they are an expert at.  The videos are free, and I don't think I've ever watched one and then thought it was a waste of time.  I want to share some of these that I've found helpful, and they're short enough for a study break and a snack! 

This talk is from Amy Cuddy, and she addresses body language and how we can actively use it to our advantage.  This talk is perfect for interview season, and should help you to build up the confidence you need.  She talks about "Power Posing," which I fully support!  The whole idea that taking on the posture of someone powerful and successful can increase testosterone (more confidence) and decrease cortisol (less stress) is amazing to me.  I definitely don't want to miss out on something because I'm slouching all the time and I don't want my patients to feel disconnected because of my body language.  I also love her idea of "fake it until you make it" because so many of us go through school and life feeling like we aren't ready to be where we are, but everyone feels like that so just own it!  Let me know what you think of this TED talk or if there are any that you love in the comments!
