    The biggest problem with relaxing, going at your own pace, is that other people...usually when they see you take offense of it. If people'd just stop...before the hate on a person, they'd see that that's what THEY nerd to be doing.

    Thijs, je presentatie is superbelangrijk en vooral het gedeelte met de ademhaling vond ik zeer nuttig, meestal doen anderen er een mooi muziekje bij en dat voegt eigelijk niets toe. Hypertension of hoge bloeddruk is één van de voornaamste aandoeningen in het westen waarvoor doktors graag pillen voor schrijven en die helaas ook niet naar de kern van de zaak gaan. Dat is de prijs die ieder van ons betaald voor het industriële systeem waarin we van geboorte tot dood(voortijdig vaak) in geboren zijn. Gaan de 99.99 % de controle over hun leven terug nemen en zorgen dat productie is voor de mensen en niet mensen voor de productie. Groeten

    I will try to control my comment. This is very very unhelpful.
    The advice given here is old as the pyramids!!!!
    what he doesn't understand is that most of us work at a job that requires 40 to 60 hours a week. i can't find time to sleep even 6 hours a day not to mention 8. also, having a demanding job really makes eating a good diet harder.
    However, i am trying to do such things, they do not work much.

    This talk is really very derivative with no new original content. Just a rehash of other TED talks.

    Yeah, reducing stress and being healthy is really cool, but there are people who wake up at 5 AM, come home at 18 PM and have to take care of their kids. Others only come home at 22 PM because they need two jobs to pay their bills. Exercise? 8h sleep? No caffeine? It's not their fault for living in a world like this.

      you are on a treadmill, but you could choose to step out. Yr life only lasts an average 25.000 days and 5000 are spend sleeping. Are you going to waiste them by following the industrial consumeristic bureaucratic model where you are enslaved from birth till death
