Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Present Moment Awareness
Being aware of and tuning into your inner and outer experience of the world
Learning to let go of what can’t be controlled or avoided
Identify and cultivate actions that move you towards what’s important in your life as well learning what obstacles most often get in the way
Committing oneself to actions that may create discomfort (i.e. anxiety, doubt, fear) in the short-run, but ultimately lead you to live your life in-step with your values
Which generally means being able to observe one’s experience without taking things so personally all of the time
Stepping back from your thoughts so you don’t get “hooked” by the stories in your mind.
