These lectures make me think of the happenings that go about everyday that play a great role in my life . I feel that because of these videos I can tackle the adversity I face with the power of mental strength.
I highly recommend these lectures! Kelly McGonigal did an amazing job with this course, as with every course she teaches. I got a lot out of the series. I recommend these lectures for everyone, both for people who study psychology, and those who are just casually interested.
Amazingly educational and entertaining
I wish my days in college were like this.
