Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life offers five-step plan for coping with painful emotions such as anxiety and depression. It teaches readers how to learn life-enhancing behavior strategies that work to further the goals you value most. Readers learn to engage with and overcome painful thoughts and feelings with step-by-step acceptance and mindfulness-based techniques. You find out how to let go of control, and develop compassion and flexibility. The realization that painful feelings cannot be controlled will open the reader to the possibility of fully emotional living. Once present, engaged, and aware, readers can begin to build new lives for themselves filled with significance and meaning. This book is not about overcoming pain or fighting emotions; it's about embracing life and feeling everything it has to offer. In this way, it offers a way out of suffering by choosing to life a life based on what matters most.

Reviews

"With kindness, erudition, and humor, the authors of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life educate readers into a new way of thinking about psychological issues in general and life satisfaction in particular. Their combination of cutting-edge research and resonance with ancient, tried-and-true practices makes this one of the most fascinating and illuminating self-help books available. If you're tired of standard psychological parlance and still frustrated with your quality of life, this book can be a godsend." --Martha Beck, columnist for O Magazine and author of Finding Your Own North Star and Expecting Adam. "This manual, firmly based on cutting-edge psychological science and theory, details an innovative and rapidly growing approach that can provide you with the power to transform your very experience of life. Highly recommended for all of us." --David H. Barlow, professor of psychology, research professor of psychiatry, and director of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University. "This is the quintessential workbook on acceptance and commitment therapy. Written with wit, clinical wisdom, and compassionate skepticism, it succeeds in showing us that, paradoxically, there is great therapeutic value in going out of our minds. Once released from the struggle with thought, we are free to discover that a life of meaning and value is closer at hand than thought allowed. This book will serve patients, therapists, researchers, and educators looking for an elegant exposition of the nuts and bolts of this exciting approach." --Zindel V. Segal, Ph.D., the Morgan Firestone Chair in Psychotherapy and professor of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Toronto and author of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression. "This book is a user-friendly tool for clinicians who may be looking for adjunct handouts for clients with a wide variety of issues. Exercises found within can help deepen, structure, or guide experiences contacted in session. As a stand-alone self-help book, it brings to light the guiding principles that make ACT such an empowering approach. I highly recommend this book to clinicians and laypeople alike." --Sandra Georgescu, Psy.D., assistant professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

The team likes this addition to the 'library' of books that we're collecting as useful resources for our clients. This one is a much refered resource with loads of practical exercises, thoughts and challenges. Succinctly written to ensure that the reader is engaged in where the book is leading them. The title is fantastic as is makes sense and reverberates through the reader as a constant reminder of why they're reading it.

I think this is agreat idea - I especially liked the "Acceptance" of pain as a part of a normal and fulfilling life and that we can experience and cope with pain - it is only when we turn it into suffering by avoidance etc thatit becomes unbearable. If you are looking for a way of combining eastern wisdom and calm with western knowledge this is a pretty good way of doing so. The workbook aspect of it gets you to eally focus on what is happening for you.
