Mind fulfillment is my own expression (previously explored under the site mindfulfillment.com).
I’ve come across a combination of mindfulness and acceptance called ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) where those two concepts were combined with value work and coming up with a plan (that would be the commitment part).
It turns out (my personal experience) that with mindfulness and acceptance (especially the last one) alone, one tends to become pretty docile and able to happily accept whatever life throws in one’s way. It’s great. Harmonious. But if you live in a place where you can’t live on the streets without getting frostbite (I do) you’ll need a bit more.
That bit more is where the commitment part comes in. I like to think of it as the Getting Things Done part.
I have a bunch of half-written articles and even more ideas on this subject, but as of now, it’s just going to be this overview of things I hope to talk about in this section of the site.
Some of the subjects will be:
- What is Mindfulness and Acceptance, and what do I mean when I talk about them?
- Mindfulness and acceptance exercises and my personal thoughts on when to use them to get the most out of them
- Combining mindfulness, acceptance, and productivity
- How mindfulness and acceptance can be used to further the Getting Things Done methodology
- Working with values and how they can help inform goals as well as facilitate acceptance
My actual training in these matters consist of one term of psychology studies so I won’t be giving any form of professional advice. My goal is rather to see if my approach to life might help someone else. (Not to mention getting it down on “paper” for my own benefit!)
