"Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune." - William James
Today, I want to share with you a powerful self-regulating advice that has the potential to transform your life by reducing stress and anxiety!
It's called "Except, Accept, Allow" a concept introduced by renowned psychologist Martin N. Seif, and I've personally found it to be incredibly helpful in navigating the challenges we face in our Software Development journeys.
As developers, we often find ourselves caught in the whirlwind of tight deadlines, demanding projects, and high expectations. The pressure can become overwhelming, affecting our mental and physical well-being.
That's why I'm personally excited to introduce you to the concept of "Except, Accept, Allow" and how it has made a significant impact on bringing a sense of calm and balance to my life.
The principles of "Except Accept Allow":
I've personally found great solace in embracing the "Except, Accept, Allow" approach in my daily life. It has allowed me to let go of the constant need for control, accept the iterative nature of software development, and be kinder to myself in the face of challenges.
Remember, reducing stress and anxiety is a journey, and it's important to prioritize self-care along the way. Take small steps towards implementing these principles in your daily practice, and observe the positive changes that unfold.
That was it for this week, I hope you are having an amazing week, taking it slow and being kind to yourself when going through challenges at work!
