Grounding and Relaxing Tapping Script for Better Sleep

Back by popular request, here is another tapping script for sleep! This one is for you if you struggle to let go of the day and have racing thoughts and a busy mind at bedtime.

When I asked my Facebook group members what topic they’d like for my next tapping script, sleep was far and away the most popular request. My video on Tapping for Better Sleep is my most-watched video on my Youtube Channel.

It is obviously a really common struggle for many people, and that’s why I’m teaming up with my friend Angela Thompson, a yoga therapist and sleep specialist, to bring you an online course to help you sleep better. Want to be the first to know when it’s ready? Let me know via email: alice@tapwithalice.com

This script is for you if you struggle to let go of the day and have racing thoughts and a busy mind at bedtime.

My other tapping script for sleep is for those who wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep, who feel a heavy weight of worry in the small hours of the night.

You might like to print off this tapping script so that you can avoid the blue light from your screen for a few hours before bed.

Please bear in mind these tips for using tapping scripts effectively:

  • Tapping scripts are a guide, to give you ideas of what to say. Tailor it to resonate with YOUR feelings and words. If something doesn’t resonate with you, leave it out or change it to something that works for you. Be specific not global (‘frustrated with too many Zoom meetings’, not just ‘frustrated’).
  • If you get triggered or overwhelmed, drop the words and KEEP TAPPING. Just use No-Words Tapping until you feel calm, and seek the help of a qualified EFT practitioner or other healthcare professional.
  • Say the words out loud as you tap on each of the points.
  • Before you tap, rate your feeling on the topic from 0-10 where 0 is no intensity and 10 is very high intensity. Each time through the points rate it again. Keep repeating the tapping script, changing the words as you need, until you reach 1 or 0. If you get stuck around a 4 or 5, probably something else is coming up – please reach out if you need help.
