How Acceptance Reduces Stress [2:33]
Acceptance is the ability to embrace any situation, any moment, or any experience life happens to throw at you. Many of us have a hard time accepting things when they don’t go their way. Acceptance isn’t about agreeing with or condoning what is happening, it’s about accepting the emotions you are going through.
Any time life doesn’t meet our expectations we react to it. But there is no reason for us to make it complex. We need to have the moment and then not add any of our stories and expectations around it.
Luke explains the exact process of how to get through it with clarity, and allow the energy around it to settle. And how to go at the situation with clarity and peace.
Strategies to Relieve Discomfort [8:17]
Luke says it’s important for us to remember that our problems are ours. If we get triggered by something it may be only us that is affected. Someone else may not respond at all to the same thing happening to them.
And, it’s natural for humans to move away from discomfort. We will do anything we can to push away from anything unpleasant.
If you avoid accepting the experience and try to rationalize it with a story you are settling.
Ask yourself if you are in this life to simply settle for good enough?
Weapons of Mass Distraction [24:26]
Ask yourself what is it you use to distract yourself from discomfort or something you don’t want to feel. Is it social media, working too much, exercising, or wine? The problem with quieting your discomfort is that the discomfort is surfacing for a reason. Life is calling your attention to something you are meant to work through or to acknowledge.
We all have an inner teacher and when we distract ourselves we don’t listen to them. Our teachers beg is to take action to achieve growth, not just think about our discomforts.
Taking action requires our ongoing mindfulness. Or, our discomfort will become an ongoing cycle that will repeat itself over and over again and show up on dates or in our relationships.
