What It Means to Be Happy: Lessons from My Self-Exploration Journey


What It Means to Be Happy: Lessons from My Self-Exploration Journey

This is how my journey to self-discovery helped me focus on my own success and change my priorities – instead of jumping on the bandwagon.

Empowering Women on a Journey of Self-Discovery | Ep.155: Gia Fracalossi

My journey to self love | Dr Andrea Pennington | TEDxPeterborough

NOTE FROM TED: While some viewers might find advice provided in this talk to be helpful as a complementary approach, please do not look to this talk for medical advice. We’ve flagged this talk for falling outside TEDx’s curatorial guidelines. This talk only represents the speaker’s personal understanding of and experiences with depression, mental health, and visions. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf

For decades, Dr. Andrea Pennington hid her battle with depression and anxiety. As a popular American medical journalist and TV host she survived her high powered media career as a functional depressive. Denying her true passion for artistic expression became so painful that she hit rock bottom with depression and burnout. In despair she went on a journey that led to a surprising musical epiphany, an out of body experience and an awakening, which helped her reconnect to the essence of her Authentic Self. This inspired her to go on a journey of inner work, self-exploration and self-expression.

Now, Dr. Andrea speaks globally to reduce the stigma of mental illness and to support people on their journey to overcoming trauma and embracing authentic living. She also sings and teaches the principles of real self love through the non-profit Real Self Love Movement as part of her mission to help as many people as possible who’ve also battled self-hatred, ‘imposter syndrome’ and depression.

Dr. Andrea Pennington is an integrative physician, acupuncturist, meditation teacher and international bestselling author of several books. She is also a documentary filmmaker, visionary brand strategist for Light workers and Founder of the #RealSelfLove Movement.​ ​Andrea’s latest book and song, both entitled ​I Love You, Me!, ​explores her personal journey from depression to real self-love.

As shared in her first inspiring TEDx talk entitled ‘Become Who You Really Are’, Andrea candidly explains that overcoming long history of hidden depression and anxiety came via an out-of-body near death-line experience which allowed her to break free to love and express her authentic self. She believes that true happiness comes from within and it comes naturally when we integrate our whole being.

As a sought-after media personality Dr. Andrea has shared her candid, empowering insights on vitality and resilience on the ​Oprah Winfrey Show, the ​Dr. Oz Show​, iTV ​This Morning, C​ NN, the ​Today Show,​ LUXE-TV, Thrive Global and HuffingtonPost and as a news anchor for Discovery Health Channel. She also produced a 4-part documentary series entitled ​Simple Steps to a Balanced Natural Pregnancy​.

Leveraging her 20+ years of experience in broadcast and digital media she proudly helps people bring their brilliance to the world through publishing and media production. Her 21-Day Compassion Meditation Series is useful in breaking down barriers to self-love and deep intimacy. She is also the creator of The Attunement Meditation Process, a 5-step mindfulness meditation taught online and used around the world to lower stress, boost resilience and enhance intimacy.
TEDxPeterborough on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at The Key Theatre. Our theme was Variety Is The Spice Of Life. Dr Andrea’s extensive study of medical nutrition, positive psychology and biohacking led her to create a holistic media platform, In8Vitality, blending ancient wisdom and modern science for enhanced vitality and life mastery.

Andrea is also a highly acclaimed TEDx speaker, visionary brand strategist for light workers and Co-founder of the #RealSelfLove Movement.

As a sought-after media personality Dr. Andrea has shared her candid, empowering insights on resilience on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Dr Oz Show, iTV This Morning, CNN, the Today Show, LUXE-TV, Thrive Global and HuffingtonPost and as a news anchor for Discovery Health Channel.

Andrea’s latest book, I Love You, Me! explores her personal journey from depression to real self-love. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

How To Know Yourself

One of the hardest things in the universe to understand is the interior of our own minds: we can have spent decades on the earth before we’ve grasped even very basic things about who we are and how we function. It’s not for nothing that the Ancient Greeks felt philosophy had only one command: Know yourself! But however arduous, the journey can be facilitated by a few well-aimed bits of advice…

“In Ancient Greece, the philosopher Socrates famously declared that the unexamined life was not worth living. Asked to sum up what all philosophical commandments could be reduced to, he replied: ‘Know yourself.’ Knowing yourself has extraordinary prestige in our culture. It has been framed as quite literally the meaning of life.”
