How many times have you had either…
1) a TO DO list with so much on it that you find yourself being overwhelmed to the point that you are not getting stuff done? or
2) a job/chore you are not getting done because you are just “not feeling it”, and not even sure why you are procrastinating?
TAPPING to the rescue AGAIN! I have had this exact experience and several times have used this technique to get me moving OUT THE DOOR and on my way! A few minutes of TAPPING and before I know it, breathing deeper, feeling energized, purse on my shoulder, keys in hand, headed out the door, feeling pretty good about myself! FEELING PSYCHED! That is such a great FEELING.
When you become aware that there is lots to get done and you are spinning your wheels, feeling resistance, maybe even dread … START WHERE YOU ARE!
Here is a TAP SCRIPT to get you going.
SET UP STATEMENT
Karate Chop (KC)
Even though I don’t feel like doing this stuff on my list
(name what you are putting off, NOT wanting to do)
I love and accept myself anyway. (3x’s)
Now the REMINDER PHRASE as we go point to point.
Eye Brow (EB) I don’t feel like doing this stuff on my list.
Side Eye (SE) I reallllly don’t feel like doing this stuff on my list.
Under Eye (UE) I don’t feel like doing this stuff on my list.
Under Nose (UN) I don’t feel like doing this stuff on my list.
Chin (CH) same as Under Mouth (UM) I’m just not motivated to do it.
Collar Bone (CB) I am just NOT feeling like doing it.
Under Arm (UA) I don’t feel like doing this stuff on my list.
Top of Head (ToH) I wish I felt motivated to get this stuff done.
TAKE A NICE BIG BREATH – do the above round above 2-3 times.
Speak and TAP slowly. Take your time with it. Change the words to fit your own specific circumstance or just use what I have written, it will still work.
(EB) Maybe I could just go do a couple things.
(SE) Just getting out the door would be progress.
(UE) Maybe I could just get headed out.
(UN) Maybe I could get a few things done.
(CH) I always feel better when I get a few things done.
(CB) and even if I don’t .. that’s ok!
(UA) ! I can still CHOOSE to love and accept myself anyway.
(ToH) I love feeling PSYCHED and crossing stuff off my list!
Just try it – you got nothing to lose but the stuff off your list!
