Meet Jane McGonigal. Meet her (free) video game Super Better. Half “Fitocracy”, half empowerment, Super Better is an online game in which you rack up points as you heal. Yes, it’s a game about getting better.
This is her on TED Talks: http://www.ted.com/talks/jane_mcgonigal_the_game_that_can_give_you_10_extra_years_of_life.html
Her game is the best source of step-based healing you could find on the internet. If you’re having difficulty getting started on something – from a novel to CBT to physiotherapy – this is the first place you should go.
More on this site next week, and on mindfulness! (I’m presenting my research at a conference shortly, hence panic and endless work!) I’m on Super Better as Lady Luck, a pseudonym chosen to blatantly defy the bad luck I feel follows me.
