How to Overcome Depression and Add 10 Years to Your Life by Playing a Game

Jane McGonical The game that can add 10 years to your life

While browsing TED I found a really interesting video called “The game that can give you 10 extra years of life”. I decided to watch it, and after doing so, I knew that I just HAD to share it with you guys.

In short, it’s about how the author (Jane McGonigal) got through a very tough and dark period in her life by …playing a game.

If you feel depressed, sad or like your life is not moving forward the way it should be, I think that you will like this video. And if you don’t – it’s still darn interesting.

As a bonus, just for watching it, you will earn 7.5 minutes of life. Yep, 7.5 minutes.
