Key Takeaways

  • Psychological flexibility is a modern approach to living that involves knowing what you care about, staying present, and acting on that care even in the face of obstacles.
  • When you act on your values, you act in a way that is consistent with the type of person you want to be in the world
  • Three questions to explore your values: What was a moment this past week when you experienced sweetness? When did you experience pain or discomfort? When did you experience envy? What do these moments tell you about what you care about?
  • Psychological flexibility is a good idea because it is science-backed, it’s personalized, it involves core processes that you can apply to many domains of your life, and you can grow stronger at it with practice
