Everyday Vitality

Turning Stress into Strength

by Samantha Boardman
Publication Date: 10/08/2021
A well-known psychologist offers science-backed, research-driven, actionable strategies for countering stress and building resilience

Everyday Vitality is a book about building what's strong within us, not just fixing what's wrong. It's filled with strategies for cultivating vitality--the positive feeling of aliveness and energy that lies at the core of wellbeing. While the concept is often associated with healthy aging, whether you're twenty or eighty, vitality helps you get the most out of each day and live your life to the fullest. Vitality is associated with positive health outcomes like productivity, better coping with stress and challenges, greater mental health and the ability to manage negative emotions.

Vitality comes, essentially, from living well within the world, and in her book Boardman discusses its three main wellsprings: meaningfully connecting with others, engaging in experiences that challenge you, and contributing to something beyond yourself. These activities foster resilience by boosting emotional stamina and supplying fortification in the face of daily stress.

Counter to conventional wisdom, Boardman believes that the contemporary emphasis on self-focus flies in the face of research that meaningful connections and other-oriented actions are what strengthen us, whether that means having a good conversation, doing a favor for someone, going for a walk, or reading an interesting article then calling to tell a friend about it. It is such commonplace experiences and micro-moments that serve as the building blocks of everyday resilience. Everyday Vitality explains how to identify them in readers' own lives, develop them, and use them as a foundation to counter any of the nagging stresses that burden us on a daily basis.
