The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Self-Esteem (eBook)
When we break free from negative self-talk and embrace a more expansive view of ourselves, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish. In The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Self-Esteem, two internationally renowned acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) trainers help readers recognize how the self-critical stories they tell themselves can limit who they are. Using the evidence-based, practical skills in this workbook, readers will develop the self-compassion and self-acceptance they need to lead more fulfilling, values-based lives.
You are more than you think. With this evidence-based guide, you’ll learn to break free from the self-critical stories you’ve created about yourself, and develop the self-compassion and self-acceptance you need to reach your full potential. We all have stories we’ve created about ourselves—some of them positive and some of them negative. If you suffer from low self-esteem, your story may include these types of narratives: “I’m a failure,” “I’ll never be able to do that,” or “If only I were smarter or more attractive, I could be happy.” Ironically, at the end of the day, these narratives are your biggest roadblocks to achieving happiness and living the life you deserve. So, how can you break free from these stories—once and for all?Grounded in evidence-based acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this workbook offers a step-by-step program to help you break free from self-doubt, learn to accept yourself and your faults, identify and cultivate your strengths, and reach your full potential. You’ll also discover ways to take action and move toward the life you truly want, even when these actions trigger self-doubt. Finally, you’ll learn to see yourself in all your complexity, with kindness and compassion.
