This book helps you experience freedom and cope with stress by combining mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy exercises in an accessible, 9-week programme.
Drop forestillingen om ‘at leve lykkeligt til dine dages ende’.• Opgiv kampen mod psykisk smerte.• Lær at lægge mærke til dit indre liv og at forholde dig til dit liv, som det er her og nu.• Find ud af, hvad der virkelig betyder noget for dig i livet, og handl derefter. Troen på evig lykke har dybe rødder i vores kultur, og derfor kæmper vi imod, når livet er svært. Vi jagter evig lykke og gør alt, hvad vi kan, for at undgå tristhed, tvivl, angst, smerte og usikkerhed. Men livet er ikke let. Når vi lærer at acceptere, at livet også er svært og gør ondt, kan vi leve mere tilfredsstillende liv. Metoderne i Mindfulness for begyndere er baseret på en accept af de psykiske bekymringer og på at øge den enkeltes psykologiske fleksibilitet. Accept gør det muligt at leve et nærværende liv, som er baseret på ens egne værdier. Når det lykkes, vil man dagligt opleve mere frihed og større livskvalitet. Forfatterne har sammensat et ni-ugers forløb med mindfulness og øvelser i Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), der lærer dig at leve i nuet og iagttage dine tanker uden at være kritisk over for dem. Ved at bruge et par minutter dagligt finder du ud af, hvad der virkelig betyder noget for dig, og du lærer at leve et liv, der er baseret på dine egne værdier.
