Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based intervention that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a type of mindfulness-based therapy. ACT can help you achieve greater well-being and psychological flexibility by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings and reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making actionable changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.
ACT focuses on 3 areas:
Accept your reactions (thoughts and feelings) and be present Choose a valued direction Take action.
