December Survival Guide… TIP 18

Acceptance?

Our inner chimp, the limbic system part of our brain, does not like change. So when change occurs we’re often given lots of stress ? hormones like adrenaline and cortisol that rush around our bodies ✨. It is unhealthy for us to remain in a state of stress for long periods of time. This is where acceptance comes in. ?

Acceptance is not always easy and doesn’t always happen overnight. However, when we move closer to acceptance of those things we cannot change, we can often feel like a weight has been lifted. ?

If you were to consider what is currently happening in your life that you are finding really challenging and have no ability to change, what one small thing would show you that you were moving closer to acceptance? ?

We can change our thoughts ? surrounding an event, even if we cannot change the event itself.
