When game designer Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better. She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter. In this moving talk, McGonigal explains how a game can boost resilience — and promises to add 7.5 minutes to your life.
I just watched this talk and immediately wanted to share it with everyone here. It is good one. Jane does not get to the part about her brain injury until about halfway through but watch the whole talk. It is only 19 minutes long.
I love the list of Bad Guys for the challenge of healing from a TBI! It includes things like Balance Problems, Sensitivity to Light, Sensitivity to Noise, etc.
