감자칩을 와삭와삭 씹고 있다 보면, 단순히 허기를 채운다기보다는 뭔가 해소되는 유쾌한 기분이 들곤 합니다. 왜 그럴까요? 책읽는수요일의 자매브랜드 생각연구소에서 출간된 신간 『감정은 어떻게 만들어지는가?』의 저자 리사 펠드먼 배럿은 신체와 정신이 연결되어 있음을 강조합니다. 보통의 자기계발서에서는 생각을 바꾸면 감정이 달라질 것이라며 마음에 초점을 맞추곤 하지만, 이 책에서 저자는 마음은 신체와 서로 깊게 연결되어 있다고 말합니다. 불량 식품이나 수면 부족 상태가 우울증이나 다른 정신질환으로 이어질 수도 있다는 거죠. 월요병에 시달리며 벌써부터 마음이 복잡하고 불안한가요? 감정을 다스리고 싶다면 산책을 하거나 간단하게 몸을 움직여보는 것도 방법일 것 같습니다. #북스타그램#감정#감정조절#심리학#뇌과학#TED#월요병

Introducing Bal Arneson.
Bal Arneson infused her career with the same notable flare that inspired the countless recipes found in all three of her national bestselling cookbooks. This very spark led her to become the host of her own cooking show, "Spice Goddess". Bal emigrated to Canada from a tiny village in Punjab, India and went from having nothing, to moving to Vancouver after being forced into an arranged marriage, to becoming an internationally renowned culinary personality.
Sometimes I feel like I'm thinking too hard, diving too deep, and caring way too much about the soul way beneath the surface. Sometimes I feel like I should just be a little less passionate about spreading eternal significance and dim down the fire in my eyes when talking about my convictions and hopes. Sometimes I feel like I should stop using words like "manifesto". Sometimes I wish I'd just stop preaching on Instagram or being the person trying to have the most heart stirring conversation with the girl in the middle of the club.
But events like this help me remember who I am. I was born to preach, even if only to myself. I was made to notice the invisible that keeps us dreaming and speak to it. I am to be exactly who i am. One person satisfied most when creating moments, if only for a few hours, that speak as loud as my heart when describing the importance of you. It was an honor to help bring this vision and event together with a hardworking team, compelling speakers and the beautiful support of everyone in our community.
Incredibly proud and honored. TEDxGrantPark 17 was truly a one of one.
