I’ve put together today’s EFT tapping script to help us all eat mindfully.
I’ve been reading a lot about mindfulness recently and I’ve definitely been trying to be more mindful in all areas of my life but what I want to focus on today is eating mindfully.
I know that there are definitely times when I just eat and I’m doing it on autopilot. I’m not paying any attention to what I’m eating and I’m sure we’ll all agree that this can often lead to overeating. It does in my world anyway.
When you eat mindfully, you are completely aware of what you’re eating, the taste, the smell… You’re also fully aware of how much you’re enjoying the food.
When you eat mindfully, you slow down and become really aware of your food, your feelings, and your thoughts.
I’m a firm believer that the more mindful we are when we eat, the easier it will be to naturally lose weight and return to our naturally slim weight.
EFT Tapping Tips
Take a few nice, slow deep breaths before starting.
Get up and shake your arms and legs, jog on the spot, anything to get your body moving a bit.
As you’re tapping, take it slow and remember nice slow breathing as you go.
Drink water before and after tapping.
Before you start tapping today, just take a minute now to think about eating a meal – Really calm your breathing. Imagine the smell and the look of the meal nicely displayed on your plate.
Now just take a moment to really appreciate the food. Now start tapping.
Tap the EFT points listed below in turn and say the statement to the side. Tap gently and remember to keep your breathing nice and calm.
