This is it! Part 5 of my STRESS CLEANSE CHALLENGE – the last video in the series. This video is a tutorial on how to use Emotional Freedom Technique. It is a simple strategy that involves tapping with your fingers on key points on your body while repeating a personalized phrase.

This technique helps to bring awareness to any issue you are dealing with and also helps your body discharge any tension or stress it may be holding around this issue. I have used it many times for a variety of issues, from physical ailments to emotional stressors. My favorite use is for my chocolate cravings, which is why I have used that as an example in the video. Check it out below – I hope you find this as useful as I have!

Lastly, I wanted to take a moment and thank you all very much for participating and being a part of this challenge. I hope everyone has found at least one tool they can use in their everyday life to help manage and reduce stress. And I hope this series has increased your awareness of how stress affects you and how easily it can seep into your life and cast a shadow on all that you do.

The good news is that with a little bit of attention and practice, it is simple to shift out of that stress mode and into a more relaxed one. I wish you all much health, happiness, and “resting and digesting” as you continue to use what you have learned here in the rest of your daily lives.
