How To Think Optimistically In A Negative Situation
We’re sharing the best moments from #revitalize2016, our premier event bringing together wellness leaders and inspiring people. Want to get even more of the action? Check out the full talks here.
Positive psychology expert and psychiatrist Dr. Samantha Boardman shares three words that can help anyone—even pessimists—reframe a negative situation and think like a realistic optimist. Tune in to her interview with Jason Wachob, co-founder and CEO of mindbodygreen, to get the lowdown on the "3 Ps" and how they play a massive role in optimism and resilience.
Dr. Boardman's practice changed forever after a former patient shared that their sessions made her feel worse, not better. It was in that moment that she was inspired to get her master's (in addition to her M.D.) in positive psychology, which is what she's been practicing ever since. Her protocol, Positive Prescription, focuses on building resilience and life-enhancing change.
