Fitness & Lifestyle With a Tinsel Town Twist

TED Talks for Fitness Enthusiasts

If you have a few minutes and want to see some interesting research and arguments about living a healthy life, check out these TED Talks for Fitness and Health enthusiasts!

How Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me (AJ Jacobs)

Have you ever made yourself sick and obsessed over the number on the scale? Or how many macros you absolutely have to hit every day? Me too. And so has AJ Jacobs, who in this Ted Talk talks about how not to obsess and just enjoy a well-rounded life.

The Difference Between Winning and Success (John Wooden)

We’ve heard the quote: “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” But is that mentality damaging to the psyche? While most of us grow up conditioned to think that it is “the only thing,” recent research has suggested that pushing yourself no matter what the result is more rewarding.

Take a listen to the great Coach John Wooden and see what makes us stronger and more willing to strive for goals.

Try Something New For 30 Days (Matt Cutts)

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be a chore or a bore. Try something new!

Are We Born To Run? (Christopher McDougall)

You may have heard of this best seller Born to Run by Christopher McDougall which talks about the amazing and surprising ways running helped early humans live efficient and (relatively) healthy lives. In this Ted Talk, McDougall is back to inspire us to get off our butts and run like our early ancestors!

Keep Your Goals to Yourself (Derek Sivers)

You’ve seen the “fitspo” Pinterest boards or follow the shredded and bootylicious “Fitstagrammers” but is it ruining our goals to share them? Derek Sivers provides an interesting argument that claims that telling someone a goal decreases the likelihood that it’ll be reached.

Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are (Amy Cuddy)

Amy Cudy is a social psychologist who studies how humans judge and influence each other. Body language, she argues, can play a huge role in how we feel about ourselves too. Even a simple change in your stance can lead to more confidence and less stress!

I hope these TED Talks give you either an extra boost of motivation, or made you think about how to approach your fitness goals. Hope you enjoyed it!
