Evening Routine: 4 Ways to use EFT Tapping

I recently posted a video including four different ways to incorporate EFT tapping into an evening routine to help you sleep better at night. I know some people prefer to read than to watch videos, so here is a transcript that you can use. It might be especially helpful if you are avoiding using screens in the hours before bed.

Some of my most popular videos and blogs are about sleep and EFT to help you sleep. I recently posted a video including four different ways to incorporate EFT tapping into an evening routine to help you sleep better at night. I know some people prefer to read than to watch videos, so here is a transcript that you can use. It might be especially helpful if you are avoiding using screens in the hours before bed. If you missed the video and would like to watch and tap along, here it is!

Evening Routine with EFT Tapping

I’d like to share with you a way that you can use EFT tapping in your evening routine before you go to bed. EFT is really good for promoting a healthy night’s sleep, and this is one way that you can do it. If you don’t know how to tap, you can start by watching one of my other videos, that explain all about where the points are and everything.

EFT tapping

1. No Words Tapping

So first of all, get ready for bed, and then when you’re ready, make sure the lights are really dim, and then I would suggest starting with just No Words Tapping. [Start tapping, 2 rounds.]

As you’re doing this you don’t have to think about anything special.
Any thoughts that come up, just let them go.
It’s OK if you start thinking about something, any images or sounds or words, anything that pops into your head, it’s OK.
But at this stage we don’t want to hold onto it.
If it’s something you’ve got to remember, just make a quick note on a piece of paper and let it go.
Really just giving the brain a chance to unwind.
And giving the body and physiology a chance to unwind as well.
Taking deep, easy, natural breaths while we’re doing this.
Balancing the body, balancing the energy system.
Balancing the mind and emotions.
Just reconnecting with your body after the day.

Now take a couple of deep breaths in and out.

2. Talk and Tap

And from that space of being a little bit calmer in body and mind, just run through the day – what went well and what went badly? What was the tone of your day? And if you’d like to and you’ve got time, you can tap around the points – not a full tapping session, but just talking about what happened in your day. So, for example: [start tapping while talking, 2 rounds]

Oh, I was a bit late for work and that was stressful,
and then I had a really good meeting at work.
My lunch was too rushed and I felt kind of sick afterwards.
I had that really difficult phone call with my mum,
and then I had a really nice relaxed evening at home with my family.

Just talking about all the things that went well or went badly, the feelings that you had when those things happened.

I felt really good when that happened.
I felt disappointed when that happened.

Just accepting ALL your feelings, whatever they were.
Accepting whatever happened throughout the day.

A couple of deep breaths in and out.

3. Gratitude

And the next thing – I’m sure you’ve all heard and probably practiced the gratitude practice, where you think of three things you feel grateful for. Again, everything’s better with tapping! Let’s tap while we’re practicing gratitude. [Start tapping, two rounds]

So, just think of three things you feel grateful for, and they can be really simple things:

I’m grateful for having food.
I’m grateful for having somewhere to sleep tonight.
I’m grateful for the love of my family.

Whatever your three things are, just keep tapping around.

And as you’re tapping, feel that gratitude in your heart.
Feel it building.
Feel the energy of the gratitude building.
That pleasant, calm, warming feeling of care and gratitude in your heart.

I’m grateful for the food I ate today.
I’m grateful for having a roof over my head.
I’m grateful for the love of my family.

Whatever your three things are, feel that love, gratitude and care, calmness and peace building in your heart as you tune into the gratitude.

And take a couple of breaths in and out.

4. Intentions

And then lastly, it’s nice to tap in some intentions about your sleep, so for example: [Start tapping]

Side of the hand: Even though there were some things that happened today that I didn’t enjoy, I choose to let them go now.

Even though there were times today when I felt stressed, I choose to let them go.

Even though I’ve still got some problems that I haven’t resolved, I choose to let them go for the night.

Eyebrow: I choose to let go of my day.

Side of the eye: I choose to release all thoughts and feelings about my day.

Under the eye: I can always pick them up again in the morning.

Under the nose: I choose to sleep soundly and deeply.

Under the mouth: I choose to fall asleep easily and quickly.

Collarbone: I choose to sleep soundly and deeply.

Under the arm: I choose to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and energized.

Top of the head: I choose to feel sleepy now.

Eyebrow: I choose to let go of all thoughts and worries about the day.

Side of the eye: I choose to let go of all thoughts and worries about tomorrow.

Under the eye: I choose to feel sleepy and completely relaxed and calm.

Under the nose: I choose to sleep soundly and deeply.

Under the mouth: I choose to let go of my day.

Collarbone: I choose to fall asleep easily and quickly.

Under the arm: I choose to sleep soundly and deeply.

Top of the head: I choose to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and energized.

Take a couple of last deep breaths in and out.

I really hope you sleep well tonight!
