Tapping Out Your Fears

By June 19, 2017Self Care

When you feel like you are having an overwhelming sense of fear whether a “fear of public speaking” or “fear of failure”, a quick way to diffuse your fear is to lay your left palm over your heart, and tap with 3-4 fingertips of your right hand, in the groove between your left ring finger and your pinkie on the back of your hand. Tap for 1 minute as you inhale and breathe through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Reverse hands on your heart and repeat tapping with your other hand. This point is also called the “gamut” point and is an acupuncture point on your triple warmer chinese meridian. The triple warmer meridian affects your “fight or flight” response and the tapping reduces your anxiety.
