Here’s why you should watch this TED Talk...
Journalist Carl Honoré believes the Western world's emphasis on speed erodes health, productivity and quality of life. But there's a backlash brewing, as everyday people start putting the brakes on their all-too-modern lives.

Coming back to this talk reminded me that no matter how slowly I try to live, it's so easy to speed up without realising what's happening. Time to apply the brakes.

Hi TEDsters, we did it! We’re almost at the end of 2021, and with that, the TED team and I are reflecting on what a mind-blowing year it’s been. As you may know, this year we launched TED Membership as a way to support our work while bringing together an inspirational community of brilliant people who love TED as much as we do. As the Engagement Manager for TED Membership, I’m here to help our Members build meaningful connections with each other through thoughtful conversations, virtual events, socials, and more. This year our members attended 44 events on everything from how to make a difference at work with Luvvie Ajayi Jones to an exploration of consciousness with Anil Seth. And we have so much more planned for next year! As a TED Recommends subscriber, you know first-hand how big of an impact one TED Talk can have on how you see the world. As we move into 2022, we want to invite you to join our member community so we can continue to learn and grow together. I can't wait to meet you at our next TED Member event!
