3 Life Lessons You Can Learn From Your Couch


Are you as addicted to Ted talks as I am? My friends and I love the inspirational and educational talks on YouTube, but it’s very easy to get lost in the jungle of motivational videos…so I handpicked my favorites for you!

I promise that at least one of the following videos will teach you a great life lesson, but I hope you’ll like all three:

Why 30 is not the new 20
It sounds harsh, but every Career Girl needs to check out this Ted Talk by Meg Jay. She explains why you need to invest in your future right now, and not waste your younger years procrastinating. Don’t be afraid if you’re over 30, it’s more about the lesson than the number!

How to select the right relationship
Have you ever wondered why it didn’t work out with your ex? Alexandra Redcay really opened my eyes! One of her greatest lessons was “Don’t try to change someone who is perfectly happy!” Aren’t we all accidentally guilty of that one?

What if money was no object?
There’s more to life than money. Are you doing what you really love? Or are you working your ass off in a job you don’t like just to have that extra cash, or even to impress people you don’t like? Check out this awesome 3-minute life lesson about following your passion by Alan Watts.

Maybe you’ve got other favorites, please share them below in the comments! Let’s help each other in the jungle of motivational and educational videos!

    I really need to get back into watching ted talks more regularly! I was addicted to them at the beginning of last year, and the sheer amount of motivation I had to get stuff done was huge! I could definitely do with that surge again! Thanks for the recommendations! Stephie x
