More and more of us are feeling like we have too much to do. We are disappearing under a pile of expectations and obligations that leave us feeling exhausted and lost.
The ongoing experience of too much information and not enough time causes stress, anxiety and unwelcome emotions. We may also feel ineffectual because we simply can't keep up with it all.
The trouble with overwhelm is that it makes it very hard to do anything to find relief. We are already overloaded and confused so how can we figure out how to deal with it? It's just another thing to think about!
Yet from experience, I know that the answer is to tackle our stuff. Our baggage, limiting beliefs and negative emotions are draining us of our energy and we feel a lot better when we deal with that.
Twelve years ago I fell in love with a technique that I still use personally when I feel stressed or overwhelmed. I liked it so much I wrote a book and a college course about it and later created a workbook with audio support for anxiety relief.
I'm talking about Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT Tapping as it is now popularly known.
When I first learned EFT there was little information available and it took me a while to get my head around how to do it and what I could use it for. But once I realised the benefits I was amazed. I took the first ever workshop in the UK and got trained to share with others as soon as I could. People would travel hundreds of miles to attend our workshops and everyone who tried EFT was delighted with it.
Now things are much easier. EFT has been endorsed by Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay, Dr Merocola and many other leading names in the fields of wellbeing and personal development.
EFT Tapping is a great technique for dealing with overwhelm, emotional baggage and limiting beliefs and now there's the chance to learn it for free with 10 expert presenters at the 2013 World Tapping Summit.
It's great opportunity for dealing with your "stuff" and putting down those emotional burdens you've been dragging around with you for way too long.
