We writers often stress about things.
Deadlines. New releases. Reviews. Dropping sales, and Kindle Unlimited…
And sometimes, that means we can’t sleep at night. Or that sleep isn’t restful.
Or – and this just happened to me – your dentist tells you that you’re clenching your teeth at night, and that this is not good at all.
In fact, I’ll probably get a mouth guard soon (or is there a better term?). But the truth is, that mouth guard only takes care of a symptom.
The real issue here is stress.
And then I remembered that I actually know this fabulous technique for stress release!
I’ve been tapping every night since then, focusing on releasing stress and allowing peace. My mouth is much less shredded… I think it’s working. And that’s why I want to share this with you.
In the video, I’m talking about some simple techniques, a visualization that might help, and about being aware of the signs and signals your body is sending you.
I would really encourage you to try a quick, simple tapping round before turning off the light – or even after! Test this for a couple of days and see whether your sleep is getting better and you feel more rested.
And here are some tapping phrases for you to play with.
Even though I am so stressed about everything I have to do, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I now give myself permission to let go of all that stress and get a good night’s sleep.
Even though I am so stressed about my writing and everything connected to it, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I now choose to let all this stress flow out and away, so I can sleep well.
Even though I feel all that stress in my body and it keeps me awake, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I now choose to let that stress flow out and away, so my body can heal while I sleep.
What is stressing you most about your writing?
Can you let go of it?
