TED Talk Thursday – Reclaim Your Self Esteem

The Student Activities Office will be hosting a weekly TED Talk Series this spring in the new Student Life Center!

Join your Student Activities department and fellow students every Thursday at 1pm on the 3rd floor of the Student Life Center (S307) to sip caffeinated beverages, watch selected Ted Talks (www.ted.com) and after, stay for some enlightening (or just plain silly) conversations.

This week's talk: 
Meaghan Ramsey: Why thinking you're ugly is bad for you - About 10,000 people a month Google the phrase, “Am I ugly?” Meaghan Ramsey of the Dove Self-Esteem Project has a feeling that many of them are young girls. In a deeply unsettling talk, she walks us through the surprising impacts of low body and image confidence—from lower grade point averages to greater risk-taking with drugs and alcohol. And then shares the key things all of us can do to disrupt this reality.
Guy Winch:Why we all need to practice emotional first aid - We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
