About this event

Eric Edmeades will share the concept of the ‘hindsight window’. The hindsight window refers to the period of time between an event that you perceive to be bad and a point in the future where you have come to terms with that event. The shorter your hindsight window, the happier you will be. Find out how you can shorten your hindsight window, cultivate a content and accepting state of mind, and grow in the face of adversity. 

  • Presented by: Mr Eric Edmeades, Canadian Senate Award Winner (Canada)
  • Moderated by: Dr Vimallan Manokara, Head, MINDS Institute (Singapore)

About Time of Your Life Celebration 2022 

Connections: Past, Present and Future 

How can we make the journey of ageing a better one? By reconnecting to our past, examining our present, and striving towards the future, we will reimagine how this voyage can be made more gratifying. Join us to connect with gerontology experts and community partners as we delve into facets of ageing like caregiving, gerontechnology, lifelong learning, and physical and mental well-being. 

Jointly brought to you by the National Library Board (NLB) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).
