I learnt EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) many years ago and was taught the technique by my amazing Head Doc. When I find myself discombobulated with any of my ‘stuff’ I breathe and do some EFT. It is one of the main tools in my self care toolbox that I use to take care of my mental health. I have done a few rounds of EFT at different times over the last month, it has helped me in moments of unease. I thought I would share it with you in the hope that it may do the same for you.
If you google EFT you will find many different explanations, methods and a huge array of people sprucing the benefits. It is, in its basic form, simply tapping on meridian points on the body. It is derived from acupuncture and can help reduce anxiety or worry and induce a sense of calm. Truth be told there are some that claim it is a load of old bollox and that there is no scientific evidence to support that it does anything. This has not been my experience at all. My advice is to ignore all of that and give it a go. If nothing else, you will be meditating and reinforcing positive affirmations of self-love and acceptance. That is the good shit right there!
Please please give this one a go and learn how to do EFT for yourself. It is such a great tool to have to chill yourself out when life deals shitty cards and/or when you feel sad, anxious etc.
Let me know how you go.
