EFT Tapping for Stress

Anxiety Holding Head

Your biggest problem or difficulty today has been sent to you at this moment to teach you something you need to know to be happier and more successful in the future.
Brian Tracy

Stress can be physical and/or psychological. It is anything that triggers the fight or flight response. The body responds to any thought as though the event is happening now, in the present. It is an internal reaction to an outer situation that we perceive as endangering us.

Basically with stress, we feel we are up against something and we are not sure we have what it takes to meet the challenge.

Anxiety and stress are slightly different:

  • Anxiety is associated with a vague threat, whereas stress is a feeling of being overwhelmed.
  • With anxiety, our thoughts lend toward the worse case scenario. With stress, our thoughts are dulled from the fatigue, or hazy and out of focus.
  • With anxiety, we feel revved up, nervous, tense, on edge, and jumpy, whereas with stress, we feel exhausted, sad, depressed, resentful, and/or moody.

Our thought process can have a profound affect on our emotional and physical well-being. Each time we think a negative thought about ourselves, our body reacts as if it were in the throes of a tense situation. If we feel good about ourselves, we are more likely to feel well.

The reverse is also true. Words such as “always,” “never,” “should,” and “must” add to our stress because of the unrealistic demands they make of us.

The beliefs we have about ourselves and how we handle stress will dictate the level of stress in our lives.
