Apart from drinking water. Water is magic.. And sleeping, and meditating, walking in nature..
Okay... So are there many single best things but why is acceptance so important to your health and wellbeing?
Firstly, for life changing tools and tips from all things from self acceptance, to reviving your mojo, to feeling strong and supple, come on over to my newly minted Facebook live in my Limitless Facebook group every Wednesday at 9:30 (Central European Time).
Acceptance is where is all begins. Its like the prequel to forgivenss. If you don't accept what's going on for you, past or present, then you get stuck in judgements and resentments and the stress these emotions have on your body can wreck havoc. and illness can manifest..
"To carry a grudge is like being stung to death by one bee" Anonymous
You can't make good new choices for yourself when you are unaccepting. Accepting doesnt mean condoning or saying it's okay, not at all, so many things are "unacceptable" but accepting allows you to take constructive action or move forward and make your peace.
Unacceptance is like denial which keeps us trapped and in a funk, and acceptance is one part of the recipe for a free, lighter and limitless life.
In accepting people and situations around you, including your stress levels and your crazy boss, it's absolutely essential to accept yourself.
"If you accept and learn not to criticise yourself you will find true health - physically, mentally spiritually" Yogi Bhajan
Studies have shown, one in particular by Harvard Medical school that self acceptance has physical and emotional benefits.
So how do we do it?
We have to accept others, when you accept others you can accept yourself. You will feel light and free. Let that stuff go!
Acceptance exercise.. Just for one day try and notice how you are judging and when you do catch yourself breath deeply and choose to Let it go. You can even say "I let you go".. Then consciously go through your mental list - accept your parents, your boss, your spouse, and people who have hurt you in some way. There might be things you cannot accept, but that's okay, just accept that you arent ready yet. One day you will be and you will feel light and free and alive. You can decide if you its worth doing again tomorrow, no pressure - self accptance all the way. I talk you through it in my live.
We have to take responsibilty that our feelings about people and stuff are our own contruct, and we have a choice feel better about things.
"There is nothing good, nothing bad -thinking makes it so" Yogi Bahjan
