Carstensen (Stanford) mentioned in Psychology Today on feeling more positive as we age
"The Right Side of 40" - Psychology Today. 7/25/2019.
"Laura Carstensen, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, highlighted this point in her 2011 TED talk. Her research team conducted a study and found that we feel more positive as we age. This is partly because we are better able to regulate our emotions and process conflicting emotions. This allows us to work through emotionally charged conflicts and view transgressions with compassion."
