No século XX, adicionámos um número de anos sem precedentes à nossa expetativa de vida, mas a qualidade de vida sera tão boa? Surpreendentemente, sim! Laura Carstensen, psicóloga e TEDxWomen, mostra estudos que demonstram que, à medida que as pessoas vão envelhecendo, tornam-se mais felizes, mais satisfeitas, e têm uma visão mais positiva do mundo.

Laura Carstensen is the director of the Stanford Center on Longevity, and has extensively studied the effects on wellbeing of extended lifetimes. Full bio
