Publisher's Summary

It's not so much what we think about creating problems and suffering, but the way we relate to what we think.

Are you struggling with negative emotions, pains, and suffering that afflict your life without ever solving the problem?

Have you been left without energy, realizing that fighting against some of your negative moods, anxieties, and worries creates more problems than the problem itself?

Are you struggling to be in the here and now because your mind is still stuck in the past?

Hey, wait a moment...

What if it's just your way of reacting to being wrong, keeping you in an endless loop of suffering?

Sometimes, you can't fight with something that is part of life itself.

Sometimes, you need to accept the problem to react correctly!

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a relatively new and scientifically proven psychotherapy that provides an innovative way of reacting to why we suffer from stress, anxiety, and conflicting emotions to become emotionally healthy.

In this book, you will understand how ACT is not about eliminating your pain or your negative emotions, but about creating a willingness to embrace them by accepting every situation that life has to offer you, becoming aware of this so that you can react to them with awareness by coming out of the trap of the mind.

Some of the important concepts on which ACT therapy is based are:

  • Psychological suffering is normal; it is important and accompanies every person.
  • It is impossible to voluntarily eliminate one's psychological suffering, even if measures can be taken to avoid artificially increasing it.
  • Pain and suffering are two different states of being.
  • You do not have to identify with your suffering.
  • You can live an existence dictated by your values, starting now, but to do so, you will have to learn how to get out of your mind and into your life.

When is this therapy used?

ACT has been used effectively to help treat workplace stress, anxiety, social anxiety disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis. It has also been used to help treat medical conditions such as chronic pain, substance abuse, and diabetes.

Start this new journey to discover this revolutionary therapy and buy this book, right now! Free yourself from negative thoughts and live a life worth living.
