How often should I tap if I have anxiety and depression?

If you approach EFT as an intervention when you start feeling anxious, or you are feeling down and depressed, it can help restore the state of your energy system. EFT can, in fact, provide some people with miraculous changes very quickly.

What I recommend to my clients with chronic conditions is that you spend 30 days re-educating your energy system. For thirty days, tap when you get up and before you go to bed. Tap before every meal or snack. Tap each time you take a break. And, tap everytime you notice a symptom. Let’s say this totals 10 times. A single round of tapping takes about 30 seconds. I encourage people to do three quick rounds each of these times. We’re talking a total commitment of 15 minutes a day! That’s it!

At the end of 30 days, your energy system will be significantly more robust. It will have learned to balance itself if you even THINK about tapping. In meetings or other stressful situations, you’ll just imagine that you are tapping and you will start feeling the shift. You’ll tap your favorite spot a couple of times and feel your whole energy system respond. You can go from starting to feel anxious to totally calm and confident in less than a minute.

Unlike physical exercise, which you don’t want to overdo when you start or you will injure yourself, you can definitely tap for 1-2 hours a day even at the start. Watch an entire Borrowing Benefits DVD and tap along for your own issues. That is what I did starting out. And I was thrilled with my progress. It didn’t protect me from some down or anxious moments. What it did do is allow me to use those moments as specific exercises to make my system stronger.

How often do I tap today? Well, I tap along with my clients. Today, with one client early this morning and a seminar on sugar cravings this evening, I tapped a total of two hours. And I feel great! You probably couldn’t depress me if you wanted to. If you are not getting the results you want, try tapping more often. If you are tapping for one long session, try the three quick rounds 3-10 times a day, and see if that makes a difference.
