I am using ACT methods on myself in relation to my social anxiety. I remind myself that I'm a person that is separate from his experiences. Once I am 'reminded' of that idea, I feel considerably more relaxed.
@sleepytime for ACT you can read the Happiness Trap by Russ Harris and Get Out Your Mind and Into Your Life by Steven Hayes. I'm using the methods in these books right now and I'm feeling better and behaving better. I'm also using CBT methods in combination with ACT methods but I use more ACT methods.
