Turning Stress into Strength

Connection Is Key.

by David Meyer

Psychiatrist Samantha Boardman advises you to strengthen your interpersonal connections, sleep sufficiently and eat well for a healthier and happier you.

Attending psychiatrist at Weill Cornell Medical College, Samantha Boardman holds degrees from Harvard, Weill Cornell Medical College and the University of Pennsylvania. She urges you to focus on increasing your happiness – instead of on reducing your unhappiness – by connecting with people, challenging yourself and creating meaning beyond yourself. Boardman explains that these wellsprings of vitality will help you become and stay happier.

Resiliency and Positivity

As a psychiatrist, Boardman focused on reducing her patients’ unhappiness and sought to nourish their enjoyment of life. Mid-career, she enrolled in the Applied Positive Psychology program under the aegis of the field’s founder, Martin Seligman. This led her to apply techniques that support her patients’ resiliency and positive outlook.
