Inaction → Committed Action

Clarifying our values and learning a new relationship with our thoughts and feelings is great, but if we don’t do anything differently, our lives ultimately won’t change.

Committed action is about finding places in our lives where we might shift our behavior to be more aligned with our values. It’s about using the skills above to work with whatever thoughts and feelings are sustaining unhelpful behaviors, and then taking small steps in new directions.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy tells us to focus on bringing our actions in line with our beliefs (to interrogate both) - aligning our behavior with our beliefs brings the only true satisfaction.
