Best discovery of 2018: tapping

The previous three years I did best buy posts, but last year I didn’t really buy anything life changing (although I did get an InstantPot, which many people apparently find life changing, but so far I’ve only pressure cooked beans in it, so I can’t really judge that yet). But I did discover something that is really awesome and also (can be) totally free! It’s called EFT or tapping.

Tapping is a really simple technique in which you tap points on your head and body with your fingers, while talking about a problem you have, and which allows you to reprogram your mind and even your body to behave in a way that is better for you. It sounds really strange and I didn’t initially believe it could work, mainly because it seems too simple, but it does! When I tried positive affirmations before, my mind would immediately respond “no!” or “nonsense!” to anything positive I said to myself, but when I tell myself things through tapping, I actually believe them. This has made me feel much better. And there’s also scientific evidence that EFT works, so it isn’t a placebo effect (although I wouldn’t mind that much if it was, as there are no negative side effects, anyway!)

You can do tapping with a trained coach or therapist, but there are also plenty of YouTube videos which you can try for free. I find Brad Yates’s videos particularly inspiring – some almost seem to have been written just for me! And he’s got videos on just about any problem or challenge you could have.

Here’s one of my favourites:

This video on overcoming sugar addiction is also great:
