You will learn:* How our minds become unsettled by doubts and unwanted thoughts* Strategies for developing greater willpower and self-control* Control skills for self-discovery, mental de-toxification and mindful self-acceptance* Way to maximise positive intrusions and be mindfully accepting of yourself
