Stillness in our accelerating life

What is it?

TED talk The Art of Stillness by Pico Iyer

Why should we watch it?

We love to travel. Seeing new places, discovering new cultures, it brings magic to our lives. Pico Iyer, however,  shows us that you can only experience the true magic of travelling by bringing the right eyes. The British writer found out that the best way to develop more appreciative eyes is by going nowhere, but to instead sit stil, taking a break. Taking a few minutes out of every day – in order to sit still long enough to recall where your true happiness lies. Pico lets us know that making a living is quiet the opposite from making a life. An inspiring talk in which Pico reminds us that we might easily make contact with someone on the other side of the globe, yet we often seem to lose contact with ourselves.
