This season, Less Stress for the Holidays, Managing Time & Focusing to Attain Your Goals have been well received topics in my workshop venues. I’ve come to the personal-professional conclusion that what all participants relate to for an easier season is keeping things simple.

I’m an advocate of this philosophy year round- and I think we all go through phases and times where the “complicated version” is attractive. Extra seasonal demands point to staying with the basics and what matters most. “Being stressed” is about feeling overwhelmed and out of control- and sometimes circumstances are beyond our control. We always have a choice, however, about how we cope with these circumstances.

I work with positive psychology/energy modality EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping) and am a certified practitioner.

Here is EFT for Holiday Stress Relief and for Caregiver Holiday Stress…

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 “sore spot” below collarbone – upper chest either side)

  • Even though I am feeling soo stressed about going to __ for the holidays, I fully and deeply love & respect myself
  • Even though 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 though 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 photo 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. 

Caregiver EFT Holiday Stress (add on to above or stand alone)

Set up phrase:

  • Even though 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 though I’ll feel guilty if I don’t visit, am not with ______on Thanksgiving, I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
  • Even though I really want to spend Thanksgiving 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.

10 Tips to Stop Overthinking

1. Awareness is the beginning of change. Any time you find yourself doubting or feeling stressed or anxious, step back and look at the situation and how you’re responding. In that moment of awareness is the seed of the change you want to make.

2. Don’t think of what can go wrong, but what can go right. In many cases, overthinking is caused by a single emotion: fear. When you focus on all the negative things that might happen, it’s easy to become paralyzed. Next time you sense that you starting to spiral in that direction, stop. Visualize all the things that can go right and keep those thoughts present and up front.

Most successful people are less likely to be perfectionists as perfectionism impedes performance.  Facebook’s headquarters had “Done is better than perfect” painted on the wall. Imagine if Facebook had waited until it was “perfect” to launch. It probably wouldn’t be around today.

Perfectionism is often born of extra demanding parents or former schoolteachers.  While perfectionism is a “learned habit” it can be an “unlearned habit”.   Perfectionists spend more time than necessary on tasks that don’t require the extra care. One issue that perfectionists often run into is not understanding that all tasks don’t require the same amount of effort and time.  Consequently, they feel overwhelmed from not having enough time in the day.  When you’re so overwhelmed by work and anxiety, you can’t get anything done, and you become trapped in a loop of unhealthy thoughts, impulses, and behaviors.

A combination of coaching and EFTtapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques) can help you break the cycle and transform procrastination (often a product of perfectionism) too!!

ebook-cover-angerForgiveness has been said to be an antidote to anger  in your life because every time you remember the injustice, and you will remember it since forgiving is NOT forgetting, you choose to release the perpetrator from the debt that she/he owes you.  You may read about the Biehl’s amazing journey here:

http://thejourneyofhope.blogspot.ca/2009/03/amy-biehl-and-improbable-tale-of.html

And…The Mayo Clinic Staff reports that researchers are claiming that, in addition to improving your spiritual health, forgiveness may have benefits for your physical health, too.  This is definitely something that warrants our attention!  It is being said that “letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for compassion, kindness and peace, and that forgiveness can lead to:

  •  Healthier relationships
  • Greater spiritual and psychological well-being
  • Less anxiety, stress and hostility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • Lower risk of alcohol and substance abuse”

Well, this helps explain the statement I’ve heard and read again and again that if you experience a high level of gratitude you cannot be depressed.  This makes sense since depression is anger suppressed.  Imagine a line with frustration in the middle.  It can go either way- one end is depression(extremely suppressed anger) and the other is a high anger level – often in an inappropriate, aggressive way.

The University of Maryland School of Medicine  is researching the connection between anger and  “unforgiveness”. Anger is a component of unforgiveness and anger is a health risk.  Then is unforgiveness  a health risk  as well? Included in the research are studies with aids patients.  Knowing more about the nature and course of anger expression in the context of unforgiveness will ultimately help define and clarify this area of research.

Now I’ll share a few important points that can be helpful in letting go of anger- something I’ve learned as an Advanced EFTtapping  (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Certified Practitioner in a training I attended and has been reinforced in my trainings to facilitate Anger Management.

  • As the victim, it’s OK to forgive only a small percent.
  • Perhaps the other’s behavior was impacted by a chemical/emotional imbalance
  • *** The other was doing what he/she knew how to do – perhaps learned – no matter.
  • It’s possible that the action was not meant “personally” – it was simply an “M.O.”
  • It’s impossible to change another person’s way of dealing; only your own.

If you or someone you love gets help with managing anger and/or letting it go as a victim, then stress is automatically addressed and therefore health will improve too!

 Balance & Power, Inc. has been addressing stress and anger management issues for two decades, corporately and  in the educational and private sectors, and is now facilitating Workplace Bullying Prevention trainings.

Bullying in the workplace, the schools and at home has reached epidemic proportions – it is our goal to help eliminate these type of situations. I believe inner strength and being centered are keys to optimal productivity and happiness. I’m a Certified Anger Management Specialist accepted by the US courts, a former Biofeedback Practitioner and faculty member Hofstra University. My office is in Westbury, NY, the telephone, Video Skype or on your site.  

When you’re having difficulties with forgiveness or anger, success and career coaching, anger and stress management strategies, & EFT can turn it around!  I’m a certified Anger Management Specialist-1 Fellow accepted by the courts.
