By choosing to fully accept things as they are in the moment we release the struggle and the stress that results from it. We can stop our fear based reactions, move from the flight, fight or freeze response to a calm, rational state of mind and we will immediately feel better at every level and regain a sense of being in control. More importantly we can then think clearly, see the bigger picture and address the situation from a place of rational or even intuitive perception.
Simply put the act of full and unreserved acceptance can quickly transform our sate of our mind, our body’s stress levels, our perception of reality and our ability to function effectively within it. Unless we choose this simple step in dealing with our problems we will tend to continue in the stress cycle and be forever reacting to life’s trials as crisis to be overcome rather than a challenge to be met, mastered or even milked for it’s opportunities.
