Jane McGonigal: The game that can give you 10 extra years of life
Have you ever wondered how relating to people, just shaking hands, just moving constantly or placing a challenge on you, or feeling happy can prolong your life span? This is what Jane Gonnigal, a game designer, proposes in this wonderful TED talk.
Clinical researchers have documented the five most common regrets of people at their deathbeds:
1. I wish I hadn't worked so hard (lost the opportunity to relate to their loved ones)
2. I wish I stayed in touch with my friends (by doing activities to stay connected to their social network)
3. I wish I had let myself been happier (do things that make you feel happy)
4. I wish I had been able to express my true self (identified themselves with their idealized person; making you more courageous or ambitious.)
5. I wished I had lived a life more true to myself and my dreams
How playing a video game or any game, can achieve this for you?
