The science of vacation: Ian Cole at TEDxOrlando
While many know the health benefits of vacation, many still don’t take the steps necessary to reap the benefits. In this talk, Ian Cole discusses the scientific research behind vacations and provides a formula to increase the stress relief from your vacations.
Ian is a Vice President for Starwood Vacation Ownership where he
works to improve the lives of over 220,000 owner families both on and
off vacation. He also has a passion for sharing his love of science,
technology, engineering, art, and mathematics with his two sons and
others through educational groups such as FamiLAB, Orlando’s
Hackerspace & Community Lab in Longwood, FL and by co-organizing
Orlando Mini Maker Faire, an annual event where over 3,000 people come
together to celebrate hands-on innovation and invention.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
