TED Talk: The Game that Can Give you an Extra 10 Years of Life (AKA Post-traumatic growth)

I highly suggest that you watch this TED talk if you have TS and if you have ever gone though or are currently going though a rough time with it. It is titled "The game that can give you an extra 10 years of life" and it's all about helping you get though a rough patch in life by playing a mental game.

Several years ago she suffered a serious concussion, and she created a multiplayer game to get through it, opening it up to anyone to play. In “Superbetter,” players set a goal (health or wellness) and invite others to play with them--and to keep them on track. While most games, and most videogames, have traditionally been about winning, we are now seeing increasing collaboration and games played together to solve problems.

It also talks about something called post-traumatic growth. Here is a quote from the talk: "It seems that somehow a traumatic event can unlock our ability to lead a life with fewer regrets".

Just watch it, trust me!!! You will be able to better cope with any struggle in your life after watching this :)
