Best of December: inspiring TEDx to watch

To start the best of the month series, I’ve selected my favourite inspiring TEDx to watch so you can catch up during the summer holidays and start 2019 motivated.

2018 was a year that challenged me in many aspects. One of the ways that I found to keep my chin up and pursue the things I want to achieve was to be surrounded by inspiring content. Through e-books, videos and social media, there is a huge amount of amazing stuff on the internet. To help you with this search, I selected the most inspiring TEDx to watch before the end of the year to start 2019 on a high note.

1. The Equation for Happiness | Isabella Bernal

In this TEDxTalk, Isabella Bernal shares how she found the way to get out of depression when she left college. For her, happiness comes from combining your interests with helping those in need. Her discovery of this equation saved her life and changed the lives of four very special women in South Africa. She founded Neela, a women’s empowerment company that manufactures handbags. Neela hires, trains, and empowers African women in extreme poverty. If you like fashion and trends, take a look at her shop.

2. We Need to Talk About Menstruation | Henriette Ceyrac

Henriette founded social enterprise Pan Ka Lay in 2018, with the aim of equipping girls and women with education, products and positive values around menstruation. I decided to include this video on the list of the most inspiring TEDx to watch because 2018 was the year that I changed my relation with menstruation. And it was emancipating!

Since January I’ve take notes (almost like a dairy) about how I’m feeling, the moon phases and my cycle. With these notes, I realised that during the first 20 days of my cycle I’m more communicative and expansive. It’s a great time of the month to schedule presentations and meetings. At the other end, before my period starts I feel that I just want to stay at home, and not talk much with people. Perfect time for planning and strategy.

3. New Cities for a New World | Stefanie Giglio

The last but not the least on my list of recommendations of TEDx to watch is the one where Stefanie Giglio explains in an easy way her studies on the intersection of Climate Change and Urban Planning.

Last week I posted on my Instagram a photo about how I like the way that Brisbane City “uses” the river. I was born in a city where the two main rivers in the city smell terrible because of pollution. On top of that, I spent 6 years of my life living on an island where there are just 2 bridges that provide access. That is why cities need to plan for people and decrease the impact of human behaviour on the environment.

Which one would you include in this list?
