100 Words: Ten Extra Years

(see “Helpful Info” to the right for more on “100 Words”)

Watch Jane McGonigal’s TED Talk.

Boost four essential resiliencies!  Extend your life (or at least add more aliveness to life)!

  1. Physical Resilience – Move your body!  Sit still no more than an hour at a time.
  2. Mental Resilience – Use your willpower; face a tiny challenge without giving up.
  3. Emotional Resilience – Experience three positive emotions — pleasure, curiosity, love, compassion – for every one negative emotion.
  4. Social Resilience – Make connections of gratitude and encouragement with others.

Enhance all four resiliencies in one Nia class or find other ways!
