Clinical EFT is highly effective in reducing depressive symptoms in a variety of populations and settings. EFT was equal or superior to TAU and other active treatment controls. 

The posttest effect size for EFT (d =1.31) was larger than that measured in meta-analyses of antidepressant drug trials and psychotherapy studies. 
EFT produced large treatment effects whether delivered in group or individual format, and participants maintained their gains over time. 
This meta-analysis extends the existing literature through facilitation of a better understanding of the variability and clinical significance of depression improvement subsequent to EFT treatment.

Yes, research shows it’s possible! with actively choosing new ways to think, new ways to behave, and new environments that best suit your emotional style.   We can change how the brain responds to emotional stimuli with researched strategies that include:

    • Find out what your “hot buttons” are – what triggers your negative emotions.
    • Observe your emotions in the moment, without labeling good or bad.
    • Investigate emotions by asking yourself questions like, “Why do I feel this way?” or “What are my emotions trying to tell me?” Sometimes there is a logic and pattern of our emotions than we can learn from and improve.
    • Practice responding to emotions in new and constructive ways (for example, dancing, writing, or painting).

I work successfully with clients and groups to do this with Peak Performance Success and Life Coaching that may include stress and anger management, guided meditation and the modality EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping – that speed up this process!

Taking advantage of when your brain is prepared to give you the best ideas is something successful people have been doing for hundreds of years.  Great thinkers have understood that the early “nodding off” stage of sleep, when theta waves predominate in the brain, is the best time to let the creative juices flow as well as while awakening before  getting out of bed  and doing stuff. Running through the day’s challenges early in the morning while you are still in this state (or even at night as you start to fall asleep) can yield amazing results! Theta waves are present during these times -and it takes takes some practice do do this easily and be in the positive habit that may take your productivity to new levels!!

Just as you start to become conscious in the morning, but while your eyes are closed and your brain’s still dreamy, think of the most immediate problem or task you have to face this day. Maybe it’s having a tricky conversation, writing a report, or creating a new marketing campaign. Choose only one and let the brain ruminate.If it morning, quickly record key words or write in smart phone. At night,use  pen and paper to quickly record your ideas, so that the electronic light doesn’t disturb your sleep.

Happy problem solving!

When you practice deep meditation theta waves are involved as well. I help clients learn meditation and they are accountable to me as their coach.

At your core is a reservoir of very positive energy, a world of quiet and stillness, and innate qualities of goodness, peace and love. This is your true inner self.  Through this time of global turmoil, it is helpful to retreat into your inner sanctuary several times a day when possible or at least once daily.   We can’t always go to the ocean or a forest, but can always go to the oasis of peace inside of ourselves. This creates well being, and lets go of a sense of overwhelm and helplessness that many are feeling.  Instead, you can feel calm, focused and empowered.  When any situations come, just go deep into your inner sanctuary, your reservoir of quiet and stillness  – an oasis of peace.  No matter how you feel, you can change simply by shifting into inner focus.

Notice that thoughts are slowing down as you move deeper into quietness and stillness in the guided meditation below.  Nothing to fear.  No worries.  Let thoughts just dissolve into space, as you move deeper and deeper into your inner being of quietness, stillness, peace.  This is your inner sanctuary.  

So…now get comfortable in your chair or lying down. Relax your body while staying alert.  Take a deep breath in through nose, belly expanding before chest. Exhale nose or mouth, belly deflating last.  Take another long slow deep breath,  paying attention to this feeling for a few moments.  When thoughts pop up, just gently bring the mind back to the breath, letting the thoughts go. Picture them just floating away on a cloud or down a stream.  If it is an important thought, just gently tell yourself to put it aside for now and that you’ll give it full attention after meditation. 

Release any tension in your body,  envisioning each part of your body, one at a time, starting with toes, and first tighten and tense, and then relax and let go of each muscle, all the up to your jaw and eyes. Take a deep breath and let out a loud sigh. 

And now relax your mind and let go of tense feelings and worry, beginning to feel light and calm. Envision a beautiful healing white light of positive energy entering your whole body as you breathe in, and the darkness of any tension, irritation, disappointment, or any negativity, being blown out and disappearing as you exhale.  Let everything of the day, the past, the future, just go.  When thoughts come, acknowledge them, and then watch them float by, and come back to your breath and to relaxing your body.  Breathe in relaxation – breathe out tension…letting all stress just slip away.

 Now, very slowly, prepare to return back to the awareness of your body, the chair you’re sitting on, the room. You feel very calm – relaxed and filled with peace.  Cherish and hold on to this feeling throughout the day.

Focus is one of the keys to success and necessary to be on your game.

Many people find it hard to focus, but it is a skill you can develop.  Do you know you can rewire negative patterns?? Try these suggestions for improving your focus:

  • Stop multitasking.  Research shows that dividing attention across multiple activities is taxing on the brain, and can often come at the expense of real productivity.  There is a small percentage of “supertaskers” out there, probably not you.
  • Train your brain. .   Invest time in mastering attention training or meditation — both are great ways to practice taming distractions and improving focus.  Any skill worth having requires practice; time well spent.
  • Screen out distractions. Start by turning off the TV, putting down your phone and logging out of email. 
  • Invest in Your Peak Time  .  When is your energy at it’s peak?  Plan your work for those times and use your less energetic times for leisure or a nap.
  •  Create off site storage for mental notes and unfinished business. Too many mental notes make for a cluttered mind.. Put whatever’s on your mind on paper or capture it digitally.
  • Revisit prioritizing and SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.  It’s your game!  Give yourself permission to change your mind and prioritize differently- in life and in business.
  • “Start with the end in mind. ” ― Stephen R. Covey, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
  • Visualize positive outcomes in your meditative time.
  • Learn EFT to help create new habits, increase focus, clarity and be on your game!Image

 Follow these tips to sleep soundly and wake refreshed.

Consistency

Adjust your schedule so that sleep time is consistent

  • Make sure you turn in and get up at the same time every day – even on the weekends.
  • Get your catnaps in earlier in the afternoon (before 3 p.m.)  and limit your naps to less than an hour.
  •   When you’re active and in shape, you are more likely to have a better night’s rest and more energy throughout the day.

Tranquil Atmosphere

Your bedroom can be a calm sanctuary

  • No electronics! Get cozy under the covers. 
  • Nightlights  in the bathroom  

 Bedtime Routine:  Take time to wind down before you go to sleep.

  • Quiet your mind: Read a book, jot down thoughts that may be keeping you from sleep, or meditate.
  • Nighttime music or a relaxation tape.
  • Still not sleepy? Don’t panic. Get out of bed and calm your brain with a quiet activity.  Try yoga or one of the activities above.

The following is an excerpt from the “Create Optimal Happiness & Productivity” on-line course by Eileen Lichtenstein.

How to Effectively Manage Time & Prioritize

“Are you challenged by time?

Is your time cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?

With this lesson you can Claim your power in the midst of chaos and movement…carry your stillness with you and you will have enough time to make the important things happen. It may be because you’re doing all the C’s (low priorities on your list), not because you haven’t time, that you don’t get to do the A’s.

Time can be elusive…don’t let it slip through your fingers. Remember, as The Rolling Stones said, Time is on your side.

“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.” – Alan Lakein

“If moment by moment you can keep your mind clear, then nothing will confuse you.” – ShengYen

Managing time effectively overlaps with a few other topics, including prioritizing, goal setting and “life balance”, meditation and the assertiveness trait of saying “no” effectively.
