TED Talk

Dan Harris was an anchor in the news. After having a panic attack on air, he discovered the practice of meditation. For some people the concept of selflove and meditation might be viewed as ridiculous. But in this talk, Dan explains these concepts from a different point of view. Selflove when properly understood is not selfish. It makes you better at loving other people. He describes love as the ability to care. And it is difficult to care for others when you are stuck in a negative spiral of self-centered criticism. 

3 takeaways from this talk:

  • Selflove doesn’t have to be cheesy
  • Learn how to high-five your inner-demons
  • Love is the ability to care
