5 TED Talks to Increase Your Self Love

Anyone who's been around me for more than twenty minutes knows that I'm a fan of surrounding myself with inspiring people. And then sharing those people with everyone around me! I live for things that give me the chance to see something from a different perspective, bring more joy to my life and the world, and inspire creativity.

They could be people in my life, experiences or places I've been to. Or they could be the podcasts I listen to, books I read and the things I watch on the internet.

I find myself recommending similar things time and time again. If I see something I love, I have to share it. And a lot of those things are TED Talks.

So, I wanted to take some time today to share with you my all time favourite TED talks. Some of these are well know, some of the lesser known, but they all have one thing in common.

They share with us how to live a more truthful life, a life where we feel valued and a life where we're not afraid to love ourselves.

Watch them all at once, bookmark this page to come back to, take time to view them on a shitty day. Whatever works for you.

Today's the day to stand up and own who you are!
