Today on Facebook someone was talking about EFT for anxiety. I tried doing it and while it felt weird to do, I have to admit, it felt really good. I couldn’t wait to share it with you. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. This is an easy way to apparently reduce or even eliminate anxiety and panic attacks.
So Just What is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming and Thought Field Therapy. During an EFT session, the client will focus on a specific issue while tapping on so-called “end points of the body’s energy meridians”. Source
Basically, you gently tap on specific areas of your body while reciting positive affirmations for anxiety. Sounds weird right? Well it is kind of cool!
This EFT for anxiety video only takes about 10 minutes to do. You are supposed to rate your anxiety or stress level once you start and then rate it again once you’ve finished the tapping session. You will find that your anxiety level goes down significantly. Nice!
I have heard about EFT and tapping before but never really looked into it. It has no negative side effects and is easy enough to do.
The way I see it, this is one more anxiety self help strategy we can use when in a pickle. It would be easy enough to go to the restroom for a few minutes in the midst of a really horrible anxiety filled day and do a few minutes of tapping in order to feel better.

I wish you peace,
