Toby Eccles: Invest in social change
This was a very interesting talk. The idea of trying something new is definitely lost on many institutions. It was Einstein who said that "we can not solve our problems with he same level of thinking that created them". Yet we seem to attack each problem with past methods. But old methods even ones that worked in the past don't help solve a problem related to now. Allowing people and institutions to "Invest" money that supports new ideas and methods is different from giving to charities where we have no idea how the money is actually spent. At least with this system there is some accountability.

If we address the stress that Kelly speaks of we can move towards my idea of a "Healthy Mind = Healthy Body" theory of living.
I have recently investigated a more "Spiritual" view towards life. The simplified version is that we create our own reality by how we think and act. I find it amazing that science then comes along and does a study that supports this belief. What I took out of the talk was, that if you believe that Stress is not harmful to you, that it just makes you more able to handle stressful situations, that is how it manifests itself in your body. Conversely, if you think that stress is harmful, then that is what you get. Is that not the same as "creating your own reality"??? As far as it applies to weight, I agree with Andrea. I was told that much of my stress lead to carrying a few extra pounds. Now that I deal with stress differently, I have actually lost weight, and have decreased my appetite. Especially for foods that are not good for you. Candy, Soda, and Chips. It is interesting that stress leads us to want human contact. Is that why face book and twitter are now more popular, as we think we are mores stressed out??
