The Centre for Optimism: Optimism and Pessimism: Your Health and Lifespan

06 May 2021 11:00 CEST - 12:00 CEST Zoom
We are happy to share the invitation to the event organized by The Centre for Optimism!
Do Optimists live longer? On average, yes!

"The association of optimism and pessimism and all-cause mortality: A systematic review" is a thoroughly interesting paper on the topic produced by optimism researcher Heather Craig and a team of global collaborators to be published in Personality and Individual Differences in July 2021.

Heather is going to join us via Zoom and we'll be asking her:

• What is optimism and pessimism?
• What's the evidence for optimism improving your life and pessimism shortening your life and make it more sickness-prone?
• What's the mechanism?
• What should we do? What should the government do?We want your viewpoints and questions in this event.
Registration is free for PWN members.

The Centre for Optimism ( is a movement supporting realistic and infectiously optimistic leaders to be beacons in the fog of pessimism and cynicism. They believe the times call for realistic and infectiously optimistic leaders.
We look forward to seeing you!
