Feeling Overwhelmed?

By September 4, 2020Blog

Ever felt overwhelmed to the point of overdrive or shutdown?⁠

Here are some ideas on targeting overthinking with tapping, in order to bring calm to your mind.⁠

First, rate any level of distress out of 10 (or any other feeling when you know you are in a cycle of overthinking). ⁠

Let’s begin with the Setup:⁠

Even though I don’t like how I’m feeling right now, I deeply and completely love myself.⁠
Even though I’m trying to think my way out of my emotions, I deeply and completely love myself.⁠
Even though I think too much and it is driving me crazy, I deeply and completely love myself.⁠

Reminder Phrases:⁠

EB: I am thinking too much⁠
SE: I need to stop overanalyzing ⁠
UE: Driving me crazy⁠
UN: Can’t sleep⁠
Ch: My mind is in overdrive⁠
CB: Don’t like this feeling⁠
UA: Too much in my head⁠
TH: Feel overwhelmed ⁠

EB: I am thinking too much⁠
SE: Feel paralyzed by this analysis ⁠
UE: Too much going on in my head⁠
UN: This feeling⁠
Ch: Can’t stand it⁠
CB: Driving me crazy⁠
UA: Overwhelmed ⁠
TH: Mind is full⁠

Remember to pause and check your rating out of 10. If anything else comes to mind as you are tapping, make note of it and start a new Setup Statement, or write it down to tap on it later. ⁠

We explore many of these types of topics especially for introverts –  in EFT for Introverts (available online everywhere).⁠
