‎TED Talks Daily: An aerialist on listening to your body's signals | Adie Delaney on Apple Podcasts

Trusting Our Intuition

  • As soon as there is an imposition from a parent, spouse, boss or partner, the body senses and provides us with signals of resistance. These signals are often overlooked or dismissed.
  • We need to trust the natural indications and signals that the body is providing us with, understanding the communication that is often neglected.
  • Youngsters need to listen to their bodies and trust their ‘gut instinct’ more than what is being thrust upon them.

Another bias could be the courtesy bias, where we tell our aunt we like something she made because it’s socially polite to do so.
