Sleep Better EFT Tapping Script

Many of us suffer from sleep disruptions at the best of times, but add in a pandemic and it can really become a problem. Changes in our routine, too much screen time, not enough exercise and outings all add into the mix. The general stress and worry of the times we live in mean we need to make a real effort to switch off at night.

It goes without saying that underlying issues such as stress and anxiety need to be addressed properly in daylight hours as well. Check out my full series of blogs where I outline tapping scripts for different emotions.

Whatever your situation, EFT tapping can help with sleep issues. This tapping script is best used in the day time or before you get into bed. If you wake in the night, try simple No-Words Tapping or Touch and Breathe (see my videos).

*If you are new to tapping, first watch some of my free videos to learn how to tap.*

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.
