Video: Today, I would like to talk a little bit about acceptance. Acceptance is one of the four key skills I discuss in my book, A Natural Approach to Mental Wellness. But exactly what is acceptance? And why is it important? Many of us spend a great deal of time and energy trying to exert control over our lives. We want things to go according to what we think works best.

We even try to control or feeling state.
