Breathwork: Breathing, Tapping, and an Affirmation

By November 22, 2021February 17th, 2022No Comments

Welcome to a three-part exercise that utilizes breathing, an affirmation, and a technique called tapping to help you quickly recenter in a moment of tension. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about what’s challenging you mentally at this moment? Let’s create an affirmation to use while tapping. Example: “Even though I feel anxiety at this moment, I am okay.” Then we take 3 breaths releasing the exhale out the mouth. After we tap along the collarbone with a few fingers repeating our affirmation! What makes this practice so useful is we are acknowledging the emotions rather than resisting them. We use tapping and breathing to get them moving rather than storing themselves in the body. In doing so we create room for joy, play and creativity!
