accept stressThere is so much happening in our everyday lives and through-out our enormous planet. An endless amount of news to watch and an endless amount of tasks to complete. There is so much to take in and so many goals to move towards. Time feels like it is speeding up and it can feel like an enemy working against us. There are so many happenings and so many subtleties to our everyday life, it makes it hard to stay balanced. One of the most powerful stress reducers in life is acceptance.

Accept the current moment as it is. There is NO reason not to. When you accept the world and its conditions a lot can open up for you in your life. Just think about it; you are in the conditions of your life and that’s the way they currently are. If you can accept where you are in life, if you can accept yourself for who you are then you can really get control of your life. Acceptance is a direct pathway to a better life. It is as powerful as it is simple. There are no reason or excuses to not bring the power of acceptance into your life.

When you feel like you are losing control of life take a step back, breathe, and affirm that the current moment is as it is and you are okay with it. This doesn’t mean rolling over to people and being unassertive, it doesn’t mean sacrificing yourself and your goals, it simply means to be ok with everything as it is. A peace will come over you and you will feel the stress float out of your mind and body. We must take back our lives so we can improve them for us and those around us. To be an example of peace and thoughtfulness to those in our lives whom we care about.

As far as a stress reducer goes, acceptance is a great choice to use in your life. It is empowering and enchanting, it is truly a method of joy. Take this skill in baby steps, don’t try to accept everything and when it gets tough give up. Just quietly make the change and build the habit one step at a time. There is NO reason not to!
