Radical acceptance is all about fully accepting your reality in situations that are beyond your control. This doesn’t mean you approve of the situation, are giving up, or that it isn’t painful. You are still allowed to (and should!) feel however you feel, but by accepting that it is what it is, you give the problem less power over you and you can begin to move forward. To learn tips to use radical acceptance in your own life, check out: https://mhanational.org/accepting-reality.

The Best Way to Improve Your Well-Being? Practicing Mindfulness

If you want to work on improving your well-being, try incorporating mindfulness into your daily life. This can be as simple as sitting still and taking note of the space around you, letting your thoughts come and go. Mindfulness isn't exclusive to structured moments like meditation, you can practice it on a walk, during a car drive, or many other moments throughout your day.

A systematic review found that people benefit from different types of therapies when addressing their mental well-being.
