How to let go of Overwhelm with EFT Tapping

“A woman who lives with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule will often ache with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul.” Lysa Terkeurst

We live in a society where "being busy" is a sign of success.

You can't afford to slow down, you've got to be busy with something or the other.. no? And what does that result in?

Overwhelm.

Overwhelm builds up to stress... that in turn leads to burnout. Not to mention lifestyle diseases over time..

So today, we'll tap on reducing the feeling of overwhelm.

A little side note before we begin:

Do not be alarmed by the use of negative language that merely acknowledges the present state of things - such as "I'm feeling overwhelmed".

Tapping is a cleansing technique - you acknowledge what doesn't feel good and clear it out using simultaneous tapping.

Such thoughts are already going on in your mind. Tapping helps you to safely verbalize and purge them. Once the negative emotional charge clears, it spontaneously makes space for positive thoughts and creative insight to arise.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (tapping) is clinically proven to lower stress, tension, anxiety, past-trauma to enable health, happiness and vitality.

Before you begin tapping bring the feeling of being overwhelmed with lots of tasks to be completed urgently and very little time.

Feel how it feels and note down on a scale of 1 to 10 how intense is your feeling, 1 being very low and 10 being very intensely overwhelmed.

If you choose to feel restrained, every little thing can be overwhelming. 

Feel grateful for what you have. An attitude of gratitude can make you feel more content with yourself.

Reorder your priorities and work on them. Slowly but consistently.

You feel overwhelming when you think you have to figure out everything at once. Take a deep breath, you are strong. Take it day by day.
