Mindfulness is defined as paying attention and being fully in the moment.  Multi-tasking cannot be included in this definition, as most people cannot fully focus on more than one thing at a time.  The influence of technology in our fast paced world has often caused the problem of lack of focus on a particular task.  This has translated into the modern workplace, especially those who are not used to the fastest paced technology. Those used to it, mostly millennials, often inadvertently miss important details. In our modern often chaotic world, frustration levels rise quickly, giving way to stress and anger.  Impatience and frustration often go hand-in-hand.  A workplace culture of mindfulness, geared to all generations and cultures can be beneficial to all.

Another tool that is helpful in focusing as well as to reduce stress and anger is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), also known as tapping.  It is recognized in the field of Energy Psychology and has become globally popular.  The physical tapping on meridian points releases cortisol, a stress hormone and sends serotonin – a feel good hormone – to the section of the brain dealing with emotions, the amygdala. Most of us are not born with the recommended amount of serotonin for optimal functioning and it may be found as an ingredient in some anti-depressants.

Here are a few additional tips to help focus in the workplace:

  • Stay on task by not reading emails throughout the day; have two specific times to check and designate some to be addressed at a future time
  • Keep cell phone sound off
  • Take frequent stretch breaks, being “mindful of physical toll of computer and phones.
  • Keep a “worry list” to address late afternoon each day for ten minutes.

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.

When we label our emotions we find that their intricacy unravels to reveal only one feeling or thought. It often can seem like we are thinking hundreds of conflicting notions at a time. In fact, our racing minds are just reflecting the speed with which our brain processes our emotions. Slowing down and naming our thoughts allows us to see our emotions as they occur one by one. Being in the moment in this way can also alleviate some of the irritation we feel when our thoughts gallop through our heads. As you watch your feelings today, you will notice that the many layers of your thoughts will become less complicated.

When you meditate, your thoughts pass through in your mind and your ability to only focus on your breath (not the thoughts) will help to find one significant single thought.EFT (Emotional freedom Techniques), Tapping also helps in the narrowing down to onesingle emotion and stressor at a time.
