One of my most treasured books is A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle.
Tolle is known as one of the most spiritually influential people in the world.
He teaches that the main reason for your unhappiness is never the situation itself, rather it is your thoughts about it. The insight and exploration in this book really open your mind to a new way of thinking.
Do you ever have those days when you are feeling overwhelmed? Butterflies in your tummy, a knot in your throat, an ache in your chest?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as Tapping, is a tool that can help you overcome negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones and help you feel calm and relaxed.
It works so well for stress and anxiety.
A gorgeous neighbour of mine once told me to tap on my sternum over the thymus (a very important organ of the immune system) when I felt stressed. She is a very clever psychologist and I didn't realise at the time that she was introducing me to the Emotional Freedom Technique.
I never gave my thymus too much chance to respond, as the younger cynic in me took over. Recently though, when I was feeling more stressed than usual, I stumbled upon an article by Dr Mercola about the Emotional Freedom Technique and decided to give it a go. Take a look at Mercola's video on EFT here.
Why should you try EFT?
+reduce food cravings
+implement positive goals
Its so easy, it doesn't cost a thing, and I believe this technique can truly help reduce stress.
Emotional health is just as important as having good diet and lifestyle habits in finding balance, so it's important that we find ways to reduce our stress.
Check it out, give it a go and let us know how it works for you!
