Can You Use EFT Tapping To Improve Your Focus?
Have you ever had a task that required your attention… but no matter what, you just couldn’t seem to focus on it? There are a number of reasons why we might have difficulty focusing on a task, and some are things we have the power to shift. Here are 4 top tricks you can try to improve your focus with EFT tapping.
Let go of stress caused by difficulty focusing. Sometimes, the fact that we have difficulty focusing can be a source of stressful emotions. Unfortunately, this stress can create a downward spiral by making it even harder to focus! But don’t worry - I created this sequence that you can tap along with to help let go of these feelings and calm the nervous system, which helps our brains function optimally for most tasks.
Let go of internal resistance to the task. We occasionally have tasks that are tough to just sit down and complete not because of our own difficulty focusing, but because we have some kind of resistance to working on or completing them. For example, if I need to fill out paperwork for a driver’s license but something inside me says, “I don’t want to drive! I’m too scared,” then that internal resistance can show up as difficulty focusing on what might seem like a straightforward task to someone without the same resistance. These resistances might be fairly easy to see – or they might be flying under our radar. Here are a couple videos you can use to identify and let go of resistances (aka “reversals”). (Hint: You may need to change the wording slightly to make it fit your task instead of the target of the video.)
Let go of overwhelm related to the task. If you’ve ever had to deal with a task that is clearly large and unwieldy, or very difficult, you might understand this emotion. Feeling overwhelmed by a task (or set of tasks) can make it much more difficult to concentrate on completing it. You can tap along with this video to reduce the sensation of overwhelm (and related emotions), which can allow for better focus.
See what happens if you tap on aspects of the task itself. If you’re having trouble focusing on a task, it may be that you are experiencing an aversion to the task. For example, it might create feelings of boredom or a fear of missing out on other activities… or any number of other emotions. I know this first hand, from driving long distances on road trips… LOL! Eventually, the driving can get boring, and I just don’t want to do it anymore and end up stalling a bit and stopping for longer than I really should to stay on schedule. Here is a video you can tap along with to let go of boredom, if that applies to your situation.
Good luck! Hope that helps! :)
