The long weekend is the perfect time to enjoy friends, family and some interesting ideas. Here we share the TED Talks that we have lined up on our weekend playlists. From our team to your family, best wishes for a happy Easter!


Marine: 3 psychological tricks to help you save money Behavioural Scientist Wendy De La Rosa shares tips to help us bridge the gap between our intentions to save and our actions.

Fundamentally, we think about ourselves in two different ways: our present self and our future self. In the future, we're perfect. In the future, we're going to save for retirement, we're going to lose weight, we're going to call our parents more. But we oftentimes forget that our future self is exactly the same person as our present self.

Morgan:  Why we need more dogs in hospitals is a moving talk by dog handler and RN, Yuko Morita on the amazing work she and service dog, Bailey, are doing.

 For kids, Bailey is a teammate with a tail who fights against their illness.

Dan: Grit: The power of passion and perseverance Psychologist Angela Lee Duckworth explains her theory of grit as a predictor of success and tackles the importance of encouraging it in our kids.

Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it's a marathon, not a sprint.
