New Year’s Resolutions… Friend or Foe?

TED has put together a series of presentations that focus not on the outcomes we are seeking, but rather on the process we take to get there. The presentations motivate us to walk more, sit less, read books that challenge our perspectives and ideas and even take breaks from our devices. It is these small changes that focus on regular process or patterns in our individual behaviour that have the potential to improve our overall health, broaden our knowledge and understanding of new topics and even help us sleep a whole night through without checking twitter!

Here at ZEST, our team is back in the office, fresh from the relaxation and sunshine of the Christmas and New Year break but before we pick up speed and launch into 2015 we are encouraging our team (and you) to hold on to a seemingly simple idea: Practice gratefulness daily. Monk and scholar, Brother David Steindl-Rast, states that the one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy. His TED presentation inspires listeners by suggesting it is not happiness that makes you grateful but gratefulness that makes you happy. He provides an inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking ahead and above all, being grateful.

Enjoy listening to his presentation and we look forward to seeing what 2015 brings!
