If you still don’t know what face tapping is, it’s time to start doing it.
This technique, which consists of gently tapping your face while saying affirmations, has many benefits, and although it sounds strange and looks weird, it helps calm stress and anxiety levels to improve your mood.
What is tapping?
Tapping is a technique that mixes Chinese acupuncture and some elements of modern psychology. It consists of giving small taps with your fingers in different strategic parts of the body while saying positive phrases about yourself. It is a quick tool to regulate our mood and calm our anxiety because it only takes a few minutes, and the results are almost immediate.
It is ideal to be able to do it ourselves, we only need our fingers, to know the specific points and the phrases and thoughts to say to release our emotions and feelings.
How to tap?
As mentioned tapping is relatively easy, you need 3 to 10 minutes to see results and feel calmer.
The first thing you need to do is recognize how stressed or anxious you feel at the time, on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is not stressed at all and 10 is super stressed.
Then you must give yourself small blows under the little finger, where your hand joins the wrist, that fleshy part, while you give yourself the blows you must say your affirmation three times … An example is: “Even though I am stressed, I love myself, I accept, and know that everything is going to be okay.”
Then, you must tap five to seven times, before moving on to the next place, and repeat another phrase, an example is “I let go of all the stress” or “I allow everything to flow”.
The points to touch are:
The side of the eye
Under the eyes
Under the nose
Under the armpits
Repeat this sequence of strategic points and blows, until you feel calmer and that number on the scale from 1 to 10, decreases.
Tapping is not the solution to all our problems. Although it is a tool of great help to reduce our stress day by day, and we can do it as many times as we want as long as it does not harm us, remember that it is always important to see a specialist.
Now that you know Tapping and how it can help you improve your mood, it’s time to put it to the test and see how you feel calmer and more relaxed, after tapping yourself and repeating your affirmations.
