Did you like the EFT Tapping video in my recent post? EFT is very useful for general anxiety and social anxiety. It’s very easy to do and very effective!
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It is a form of energy healing that combines Neuro Linguistic Programming with acupressure. It works by tapping on acupressure points that release feel-good hormones (including dopamine and oxytocin).
While you tap on the acupressure points, you talk your way out of a stressful situation. So as you do a few rounds of tapping, you start to feel better and better.
Tip: Like any good anxiety busing tool, the more you use it, the better you get at it. So do it at least daily, and whenever you feel anxious, stressed, or overwhelmed.
I’ve been doing so well with my tapping that I use it “one the spot” and just free form my words. I’ve used it in my anxiety trigger times: in the morning, on weekends when I feel stressed, before work and in the bathroom when I’m having a hard day. I’ve even used tapping to help soothe my anxiey when I wake up in the middle of the night.
The great thing is, it only takes maybe 3 – 5 minutes to go from feeling anxious to feeling better!
Remember: When your mind believes that you are safe, there is no longer a fight/flight/freeze response. So do the tapping for a few minutes, until your mind feels safe.
Here are the EFT tapping points:
Next is an EFT Tapping for Anxiety script that you can use. Go through the tapping points in order while you repeat the script out loud.
Note, you only have to do the karate chop once, in the very beginning)
