Thriving on Stress 2-2-1 (KNOW WHEN TO TAKE ACTION) by NAVY Stress Management

2. STRESS SKILLS

(2) KNOW WHEN TO TAKE ACTION …

A simple example: A young child is ready to cross a busy street alone when that child learns to accept that traffic will ebb and flow to allow for a safe crossing.  The child will first imagine or create a vision of traffic clearing and then stepping off the curb to safely cross the intersection.  This realistic vision allows the child to take action by both patiently waiting for traffic to clear and then taking a first brave step, to match the initial vision of safe crossing. The child follows the ACT principles naturally and without any thought about the process. As adults, we sometimes need to relearn what we did naturally as children.
