The Holidays have begun for Americans: Ads for Black Friday. Sales at midnight.
Turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing and pie, yum!! We are grateful and most of us are happy to be at this table. I’d like to say a bit more about grateful..
There is a huge correlation between gratefulness-forgiveness-happiness. Research has documented it and everyday I affirm this for myself and with clients. I recommend every evening going over a few things-people-circumstances that you are grateful for; perhaps journaling them. Here are some of mine:
I am grateful for my supportive and loving family.
I am grateful for my home and surroundings.
I am grateful that I can thrive amidst world chaos.
I am grateful for my health and positive attitude.
I am grateful for my friends.
I am grateful for knowing all of you- my friend and colleagues.
Whether you are hosting a family dinner or traveling to one, you may find yourself experiencing some feelings of anxiety or apprehension in preparation for the holiday gathering. This is especially true for “caregivers” and those in the “sandwich” generation- See my EFT tapping scripts below:1)Holiday Stress Relief and added 2) for Caregivers.

1) EFT for Holiday Stress Relief:
Before you get started, choose a number 1-10 (10 the highest) that is your perceived rate of stress on this topic
Here is my simple tapping script for this:
Set up phrase (karate chop or massage on upper chest).
-Even tho I am feeling soo stressed about going to __ for the holidays, I fully and deeply love & respect myself
-Even tho I know this happens to me every year and it’s ridiculous to become so stressed, I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
-Even tho I know the holidays are about gratefulness & peace (inner and outer!)) and I feel full of dread, I know I can get thru this.
round of tapping (see points in link above): so stressed with holidays
round of tapping: being grateful
round of tapping: get thru it!
check in with your stress level about the holidays and I bet it’s much lower.
2) Caregiver EFT Holiday Stress (add on to above or stand alone)
Set up phrase:
-Even tho I feel like I’m being pulled in 10 directions and may be losing my mind I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
– Even tho I’ll feel guilty if I don’t visit, am not with ___on TG, I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
– Even though I really want to spend TG with__ and I’m having dinner for (or going to)____, I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
round of tapping: 10 directions
round of tapping: losing my mind
round of tapping: guilt
2 rounds of tapping: I’ll be OK
round of tapping: ____ (subject of caregiving) will be fine
round of tapping: once a year
Now, check in with your stress level about the holidays and I bet it’s much lower. Repeat this everyday. You may substitute words as needed. Visualize positive celebrations, take time for yourself and keep up the gratefulness lists.
