Een interessante TED Talk van deze jongeman die voorstelt dat scholen onderwijs gaan geven in hoe we gezond en gelukkig kunnen worden.
When 13 year-old Logan LaPlante grows up, he wants to be happy and healthy. He discusses how hacking his education is helping him achieve this goal.
Education is important, but why is being happy and healthy not considered education, I just donâ€™t get it. So Iâ€™ve been studying the science of being happy and healthy.
It really comes down to practicing these eight things.
2) Diet and nutrition
3) Time in nature
4) Contribution; Service to others
8) Relaxation and stress management
8) Religious or spiritual involvement, yes, got that one.
So these eight things come from Dr. Roger Walsh, he calls them Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes or TLCs for short. He is a scientist that studies how to be happy and healthy. In researching this talk, I got a chance to ask him a few questions like; do you think that our schools today are making these eight TLCs a priority? His response was no surprise, it was essentially no. But he did say that many people do try to get this kind of education outside of the traditional arena, through reading and practices such as meditation or yoga.
