Change your mindset, change the game | Dr. Alia Crum | TEDxTraverseCity

  • Опубликовано: 15 окт 2014
  • This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Dr. Crum says the biggest game changer is “YOU, by harnessing the power of your mind." She explores scientific results that show the influence of the mindset on the body, and how changing the subjective mindset produced different outcomes. Dr. Crum's work is inspired in part by the placebo effect, and has implications that stretch far beyond the realm of medicine.
    Dr. Crum is a professor, psychologist, and researcher investigating how mindsets affect health and behavior.

    Dr. Crum's research focuses on how changes in subjective mindsets-the lenses through which information is perceived, organized, and interpreted-can alter objective reality through behavioral, psychological, and physiological mechanisms. Her work is, in part, inspired by research on the placebo effect, a notable and consistent demonstration of the ability of the mindset to elicit healing properties in the body. She is interested in understanding how mindsets affect important outcomes outside the realm of medicine, in the domains of behavioral health and organizational behavior.
    About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    This is so true, I have experienced w/people around me & in my own life, Why do we bash ourselves for not eating right, exercising enough or being on trend. it all mindset/perception. I am convinced that all physical disease is a result of wrong thinking. People who have a happy disposition & let mistakes,errors & stress "roll off their back" are much happier & healthier.

    I am very thankful to witness her talking about this very important informations and insights..I believe dr. Alia Crum is just aware of the impact of her work on us, I would be nervous/ or better excited as well as her. (I, too, get this voice, but only if I am not selling, but actually sharing important stuff to more than two persons. I am like a one to one person).

    This is so important. It seems to be what has been happening with me over the past 9 months. My mindset is being transformed. This lecture is confirming what I have found in life. Stress is good and enhances the mind's ability to receive information and activates the ability to apply it.

    Lo expuesto en el video es consistente con lo que hemos estudiado y experimentado en Mindfulness.
    Aunque la ponente habla de mentalidad, es realmente lo que llamamos "estar mindful " .
    El cerebro con sis partes y sistemas, domina al cuerpo; no se trata de "creencias", fe o autosugestión; se trata de no dejar las funciones orgánicas actuar en automático, de asumir el control cerebral (consciente) de los procesos orgánicos.

    You are not your mind?
    The most of us have been created to function automatically, work as robots. Solve the companies solution without ask. More of the people create habits to make the life easier to follow.
    We love the laziness and comfortable life.
    When you live the presence, you will force the brain to think all the time, you will do things not automatically, instead use your brain to solve the problem, that is why we love to create habits to follow, easy life with out to think.
    People that let their mind to force them, are not willing to live the presence.
    They will therefore not create a huge success.

    I teach English to non-native speakers of English. I know that I am not the only teacher who gets nervous before a new class starts. Even in the middle of a course, I'm still nervous. The only way I can cope with this is to plan my lessons very well so that I can answer any questions that come up. I knew a university professor who got nervous weeks before the start of every semester. It never really goes away. I force myself to teach, otherwise I would curl up at home and never leave the flat.

    Intelligent, goodlooking & well spoken. Calm but serious she takes us on a journey of her incredible adventures and discoveries in the amazing world of science. Meanwhile im getting the impression that her posture, enthousiasm and energy is a byproduct of the findings in her study. She is abusolutely mesmerizing in my opinion. If i was a cat, my definition of catnip would be an image of this professor.
    The theory sounds acceptable, and with that she has planted a seed in my mind, that tells me that the way i see and think about things, can be a definitive factor when it comes to my physical body and health. Guess we have to increase positive vibrations yeah!
    This lady is so inspiring! This kind of energy and motivation is what i envisioned a real teacher was before i experienced secondary school. instead we get a bunch of broken spirited souls that picked a new career route and are trying to teach without having actual knowledge or interest. I'd never miss a single class if a professor like Dr. Alia Crum explained things day in day out. Damn i'd be sitting front centre with a notepad making notes and probably a small but carefully drawn sketchy-doodly-image thingy of said professor on every pagecorner.

    The missing part of the story is how we CO CREATE .. people DO respond to their beliefs, but where do these beliefs come from ??? Answer : they are a response to what we are TOLD. ~ This is not a new finding; all the people in marketing know all about this. People tend to DO as they are told .. To liberate ones self , one has to extricate themselves from what everybody else thinks & believes about said subject, feel like an outsider, & probably have to deal with secrecy & some amount of self doubt ~ As for myself, I take everything with a grain of salt, & I don’t rely on what people say..

    Everyone likes skinship. People are easily comforted when they are spoken to, and cared for. Many diseases including depression and mental illness will be eased if someone listens to the sufferers. Loneliness and neglect are the root causes of modern day diseases.
