The "reality slap" takes many different forms. Sometimes it is so violent it's more like a punch: the death of a loved one, a serious illness, a major injury, a freak accident, a shocking crime, a disabled child, the loss of a job; bankruptcy, betrayal, fire, flood, divorce or disaster. Sometimes it's a little gentler: envy, loneliness, resentment, failure, disappointment or rejection. But whatever form it takes, one thing's for sure: it hurts! And most of us don't deal with the pain very well.This book is based on a scientifically proven mindfulness-based approach called "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy" (ACT).Within these pages, you will learn how to cope effectively when life hurts: not just how to survive, but how to thrive. Using the proven principles of ACT, you'll discover how to: find peace in the midst of your pain; find calm in the midst of your chaos; anchor yourself in the midst of emotional storms; increase your sense of connection with yourself and others; use your painful emotions to cultivate wisdom and compassion; find fulfilment even when you can't get what you want; heal your wounds, and come through stronger than before.This is a book that has the power to change your life.
