anxiety blocker #2: tap tap for energy

April 23, 2020

This post was inspired by my lovely colleague Laurence Bridot with whom I am co-leading a virtual team workshop for Google right now. She shared the “Energy Shower” which involves a sequence of tapping on our body to reduce stress and anxiety. It comes from the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) where the latest research and science shows that through tapping we activate the meridian system in our body which impacts the amygdala, our fight or flight response centre in our brain. The patterns of self sabotage such as worrying, procrastination, being stuck in old habits, at the most basic level, are stress responses, driven by our amygdala.

Tapping can create a balance in our energy system, can unleash self healing, and retrain the brain on how to respond to our inner saboteur and fear centre. Why not give it a try? Takes up about a couple minutes of your time, and if you feel the benefits you may find yourself volunteering for another round of tapping.
