Have you tried EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Tapping?

Similar to acupuncture emotional freedom technique (EFT) focuses on the bodies meridian points to restore balance to your body’s energy. When energy gets stuck it disrupts our inner peace, we experience its effects with anxiety, depression, discomfort and pain. By using our fingertips to physically tap specific points along our meridians, it’s believed that EFT "taps" into our energy system to restore balance by sending signals to the part of the brain that controls stress.

EFT Tapping

EFT Tapping may seem radically different from mindfulness meditation, but the goal is actually quite similar. This technique requires you to tap on a few of your body’s meridian points – some of the same spots on your body used in acupuncture – as you focus on whatever it is that’s bothering you in the present. In so doing, you gradually work through the layers of feelings and stresses that have become built up in your mind and body. With time, you are able to acknowledge what happened to you in the past or what may happen in the future without becoming too stressed, anxious, or even sick about it.

EFT is a fantastic tool to use on the go, and people are completely oblivious to you doing it! I have personally used it whilst traveling in a car and in meetings, both times no one battered an eyelid.

Our personal favourite is 'The Tapping Solution' app which costs £7.99 per month. There's a whole spectrum of subjects to tap on including COVID anxiety, loneliness and much more.
