Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or ACT is an empirically-based psychological intervention that uses mindfulness, acceptance, commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. 

The objective of ACT is not the elimination of difficult feelings but rather to learn to accept them to effectively handle them.

ACT skills include defusion, expansion and connection. The idea is to help identify your values and help you translate them into committed actions rather that to pursue goals that might make you more distraught and feeling inadequate.
