Many people suffer for their feelings and thoughts, they fighting them and try to push them away, which is a behavior that worsens the situation. While your mind is hazy for this kind of intrusive thoughts, is so difficult to become estranged and focused on the present moment. This type of negative escalation can have an exaggerated influence on your life.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a proven-effective treatment for numerous mental health issues like depression, anxiety, stress, eating disorders, and addiction; and is a scientifically based psychotherapy meant to help people embrace their feelings and thoughts instead of struggling with them or feeling guilty for having them. The only thing that happens when you try to run away from your problems is that you get further away from the solution. The best thing you can do is to solve the problem. ~ AMAZON -- Link to source of summary:
