From my personal experience and practice, acceptance of the stressful circumstances we may find ourselves in is one of the main keys to problem-solving. Attempting to solve a complex problem from a state of distress and anxiety only builds layers and layers of stress on top of each other.
Acceptance itself is not a solution per se, but it is the neurological trigger necessary to exit survival mode.
Complex problem-solving requires creativity, which cannot exist in survival mode. And as I always like to translate words and concepts into concrete, applicable and functional terms, “acceptance” is a particular physiological action, a controlled series of moments of relaxation, dispersing physical tension throughout the body, all at once.
