This is a favourite topic of mine! It seems to be a natural byproduct of EFT (Tapping) that you increase energy, or feel ‘better’ in general (even if you are not sure if the tapping helped the issue you were tapping on).
But what if you just feel tried all the time? And you haven’t yet tapped on it?
How tired is TOO tired? Fatigue is a lingering tiredness that is constant and limiting. With fatigue, you have unexplained, persistent, and relapsing exhaustion. Tips to fight fatigue include drinking lots of water, limiting caffeine, improving your diet and getting enough sleep (more on that in future blogs). Activity and physical exercise help fight fatigue. Fatigue can have a medical cause so please check with your doctor. Fatigue can also be a symptom of stress, anxiety, grief or depression.
For everyday tiredness, or general fatigue, you could try EFT.
Use some setup phrases such as:
- Even though I am just too tired, I accept this is how I feel right now
- Even though I wake up feeling exhausted every day, I choose to do something about this with tapping
- Even though I can’t get out of bed / feel tired all day / feel tired after lunch / …. I deeply and completely accept myself.
Focus on the feelings, thoughts and beliefs that are present for your reminder phrases – or focus on any sensation in your body you might be aware of. There may be layers so stay with it.
Brad Yates (EFT leader) shares a video on tapping for tiredness and I include it here for your viewing pleasure.
Until next time, happy tapping!
