30-day TED Challenge
Today I'm going to introduce about my friend's 30-day challenge!
It's watching one TED talk every day!
Here are TED talks that she has watched from 1st day to 15th day with her comments.
Please check them out if you are interested in. These made me want to try this challenge next time!! :)

Day 1
Nature. Beauty. Gratitude.

My 30days challenge started with this TED talk. The most appropriate one for a start.
Beauty : Jewels and flowers come out of the mouth of the seraphic.
Nature : No one can have everything. But everyone can have extraordinary beauty and wonder of nature at any moment.
Gratitude : I have loved-ones who call my name.

Day 2 Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model.

Not very inspiring one to me...
Watched a lot for training though.

Day 3 Less stuff, More happiness

It's December, so I've chosen this!

Day 4 Your body language shapes who you are

Always feeling like being lack of confidence, I should try this 2 mins posture!

Day 5 Free or cheap Wii Remote hacks

For me, it's just magic!
Field of Science, invention or computer related things.... All Greek to me.

Day 6 The history of our world in 18 minutes

Want to repeat it, cos
1: it's well-constructed and interesting talk I like. Attractive way of talk.
2: the history of this planet is always my favourite story✨

Day 7 Teach every child about food

Jamie Oliver's talk !
Watched this many times and this is very important issue. Eating is living.
We are what we eat.

Day 8 Why we love, why we cheat

Most curious topic ever!
Will repeat it now.

Day 9 The secret to desire in a long-term relationship

The speech went on the way I didn't expect, but feel like I watched one film.

Day 10 The transformative power of classical music

One of my favourite !
Super amazing ! Love it.

Can't stop repeating Jamie's talk! Addiction to British accent, truly my Achilles' heel🙈
Thirst for more TED of British people!

Day 11 How schools kill creativity

Great talk with full of humor! Love his talk but was hard to understand what he said.

幸せな人生の秘けつ 1000 Awesome Things
前回の記事のThree good thingsをやってみたけど良いことがなかなか見つからないという人へオススメのTEDが12月3日のスーパープレゼンテーションで放送されていたので紹介します。

The 3 A's of awesome

3 As とは Attitude, Awareness, Authenticityのことなんですが、この中のAwarenessというのがまさに小さな幸せに"気づくこと"で彼はこのように語っています…
Having a sense of awareness is just about embracing your inner three year-old. Because you all used to be three years old. That three-year-old boy is still part of you. That three-year-old girl is still part of you. They're in there. And being aware is just about remembering that you saw everything you've seen for the first time once, too.

彼が1番辛かった時期にどうにかして前向きに物事を考える方法を見つけなくてはと始めたブログが1000awesomethings.comです。日常の些細な幸せを1000個書くと決めて#1000からカウントダウンする形で始めて、最初は読者が母親だけだったブログが最終的には「世界最優秀ブログ賞」に選ばれ書籍化までされてベストセラーになるというまさにAWESOMEなお話です。このブログを見ると日常の小さな幸せを見つけるヒントが満載でさらに英語の勉強にもなるのでぜひチェックしてみて下さい。
書籍はAmazonで見たら2011年発売とのことですが今もカテゴリHumor EssaysMotivational Self-Helpでベストセラー1位となっていました!

また、アプリにもなっているようです!

30日間チャレンジ Three good things
今日はママ向け英語サークルの他の方が挑戦中の30日間チャレンジを紹介したいと思います。
それは"Three good things"1日に3つ良かったことを書くというものです。
詳しくはこちらのライフハックブログでも5年近く前に紹介されています。

まいにち、就寝前に、その日にあった『よいこと』を三つ書き出し、これを一週間続ける」
たったこれだけで、うつの改善に驚異的な効果を発揮するのだそうです。


とのことですので落ち込んでいる方、ポジティブになりたい方、ぜひまずは1週間、できれば21日以上続けてみて下さい!

ちなみにTwitterには#3goodというハッシュタグがあり、検索すると色々な人の良かったことが見れてこちらもハッピーな気分になれます♪

私も一時期手帳に書き込んだり、たまにTwitterでつぶやいたりしていました。
そしてこれを機にまた再開しようと思い、以前使っていたこちらのアプリに記録し始めました!写真も付けられたり、過去の良いことをスライドショーで見れたりとなかなか良いです(^_^)

あとはこちらのTEDにも似た様な話が出てきます。
The happy secret to better work

We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards?
「一生懸命がんばれば成功できる 成功すれば幸せになれる」というほとんどの企業や学校で 考えられている成功の法則は実は科学的に間違っていて逆だというお話です。成功するから幸せなのではなく幸せだから成功するということです。
この幸福と成功の法則をひっくり返すために「脳がよりポジティブになるよう訓練する方法」が最後の11分以降に出てくるんですが・・・
We've found that there are ways that you can train your brain to be able to become more positive. In just a two-minute span of time done for 21 days in a row, we can actually rewire your brain, allowing your brain to actually work more optimistically and more successfully. We've done these things in research now in every single company that I've worked with, getting them to write down three new things that they're grateful for for 21 days in a row, three new things each day. And at the end of that, their brain starts to retain a pattern of scanning the world, not for the negative, but for the positive first.

three good thingsではなくてthree new things that you are grateful forということでしたが…それもthree new things each dayということです。そうするとネガティブ思考からポジティブ思考になれるようです。数え出してみると感謝するべきことは身の回りに数えきれないほどあるということに気づけるということでしょうか…是非皆さんも一度お試しください(^_^)

ママ向けの英語サークル&30日間チャレンジ!
今日は月に1度のママ向けイングリッシュサークルに参加してきました!
いつもは本を読んできてのディスカッションですが、今回は特別編ということでTEDを使ってやることに。
以前Online Study Groupで取り上げたトピックだったのでリーダーをやらせて頂きました。
こちらのTEDです↓

Here are the questions.
1. What did he learn while doing these 30-day challenges?
2. What have you ever tried to do for 30 days in a row?
3. What kind of challenge will you start with in your life?
最後の質問の答えとして私はこのサークルのブログを30日間毎日更新することにしたので、今日からチェックしてみて下さい(^_^)
