What is stress and how does it affect your health
Stress can kill or shorten your life. There are steps you can take to reduce the stress triggers and overwhelm in your life.
Stress can have a negative impact on your mental and physical health. There are many factors that can contribute to stress, including work, relationships, and finances.
One of the most common symptoms of stress is an elevated heart rate. This is also known as tachycardia and it’s often caused by a fight-or-flight response. This response is triggered when the brain perceives a threat to your safety or well-being.
Stress can cause many other physical symptoms such as headaches, digestive problems, muscle tension, sleep disturbance, heart disease, depression and anxiety.
You deserve to live a life free from stress and overwhelm. Learn how to erase those feelings and reclaim your own power with the help of this proven technique.
EFT Tapping Steps to Reduce Stress & Overwhelm
EFT tapping is a technique that has helped thousands of people remove stress, anxiety, and pain from their lives. EFT is an easy technique with proven benefits for physical, mental, and emotional well-being that you can use in just a few minutes anytime and anywhere.
EFT tapping is a form of psychological acupressure that helps to release physical and emotional tension. This technique is often used for stress management, overcoming addictions, and healing from trauma.
The EFT tapping steps to reduce stress and overwhelm are:
- Identify the event that triggered the stress or overwhelm
- Rate the intensity of your event on a scale of 0-10 (0 being no anxiety or overwhelm at all, 10 being the most intense you have ever experienced)
- Think about how you feel in your body when you think about this event
- Identify any thoughts or emotions that come up when thinking about this event
- Tap on each energy point while stating an affirmation until you feel relief
HOW TO USE THIS SCRIPT
Read through the statements, and give each one a number. The number is how true the statement feels to you on a scale of 0 to 10.
Consider your initial reaction to these statements. You might say that you don’t believe them at all. But if you feel into each statement for a moment, you may notice a secondary response. While your intellectual side may reject the statement, the statement may feel true for you. If it feels true for you at all (meaning that it’s a 2 or above), tap on it
These scripts can be changed in any way you want to make them work better for you. Some might suit you and some might not. Just use the ones that suit your experience and feel true, or convey an emotional charge.
You may notice that when you start tapping on these statements, thoughts and feelings will arise that you can then use as new tapping statements. This will then lead to even more thoughts and feelings. Tap into all those ideas and create great new tapping statements.
You have a lot of stuff to use. It’s important to remember that tapings sessions shouldn’t be too long. Doing a few statements per tapping session will help you pace yourself and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed. You can return to this script at another time to tap out the rest of the statements that have a charge for you, either in terms of believing it, or in terms of carrying an emotional charge, or both.
When doing EFT/tapping on your own, if you get stuck, aren’t getting the results you want, or would simply like to have the support and guidance of an experienced professional, I recommend working with an EFT practitioner.

“Lack of self-esteem is what causes wars because people who really love themselves don’t go out and try to fight other people … It’s the root of all the problems.”
— Oprah Winfrey
