What is Acceptance?
Accepting the ‘isness’ of the moment and not the situation.
Saying Yes to NOW
What happens when we don’t accept?
There is a tug of war between you and the situation
What you resist persists
You are focussing on the problem and not the situation
What happens with acceptance?
You are in the NOW
Judgement stops, Questioning stops.(why me, how)
It enhances the ability to deal with the situation
With acceptance comes presence,. with presence comes alertness and with alertness comes change
How to accept?
LET GO, Relax, NOW
Let go of resistance, let go of anxiety and worries (journaling, draw, silence, breathe, affirm)
Deeply relax (humming, music, dance, art, play)
Be in the NOW: (focus and snap out of past and future)
Accept and acknowledge where you are, before you figure out how to get out of the situation
