062. Watch 100 TED/TEDx TalksAfter only watching 30 between November 2014 and November 2017, I watched another 29 across two months!
Thanks to YouTube's suggested videos, it's very easy to fall into a TED talk-watching hole. Last time I logged on, I intended to watch 'just one or two' to pass some time.
Eleven videos later, I have this post for you: talks (mostly) on the psychology smiles and gratitude.

In this talk, she retells some of her experiences with this project, and the things she learnt throughout, and what it reveals about our society.
