The Stocktail Paradox and new research from NYU has shown that realistically optimistic people are better at articulating their dreams because they understand that there will be obstacles along the way. In this interview with mindbodygreen Founder and CEO Jason Wachob, Dr. Samantha Boardman, psychiatrist and positive psychology expert, explains the "WOOP" method and how it can help you set and achieve your goals.
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 Dr. Boardman 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.
