Obviously, I’m a big fan of talk therapy, too but loved sharing some information around some body based alternatives, EFT (emotional freedom technique) and yoga which I often incorporate into my counselling and coaching, when appropriate – thanks for including me, Charlotte Haigh.

Have you ever talked about something too much?

What helped you get unstuck?

Feel free to share below.

Join my free #30dayeftchallenge and boost your self-care

I had the plague (‘flu) over Christmas and New Year and lost the will to take even the most basic self-care steps for days as I wasn’t up to it.

Have been well again for nearly a week and am doing regular Happy Dances at having energy and being able to do things. This renewed appreciation of life has also coincided with my effort to tap daily – I’ve meditated and done (at least a little) yoga daily since 2013 but would normally only tap on myself when feeling pretty dire.

And every time, I’d be amazed at how quickly it helps! There’s something so powerful about VOICING our upsets, even just to ourselves. Then, the concentration of tapping specific points helps stop rumination, getting us back into our bodies and the present moment. And, of course, the fact that we’re working with meridians, tapping acupressure points, means we’re releasing blocked energy.

It might take a minute or two or, if something’s especially upsetting, much longer. But by doing it daily, I’m noticing how much happier I am feeling in general. It’s helping me get out of my own way and be more open to opportunities.

By creating this simple challenge, we’ll tap daily and share #day1 (or whatever day it is for you) and #30dayeftchallenge and, if you want #pain #niggles #anger #grudges #stress #anxiety #worry #block #cranky #gratitudes #sleep #whateveritisyouvetappedonwithoutsharingmorethanfeelsgoodforyou

To give you an example of how I’ll be sharing, today’s tweet will be as simple as:

#30dayeftchallenge #eft #day1 I launched this challenge today and hope you’ll join me – today, I tapped around #health What did you tap on?

I’ll be sharing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and hope this will grow so please share with anyone you think might benefit.

EFT is a transformative (and simple, and free) tool. I qualified in 2006 and became an advanced practitioner a few years ago. I included some tips around it in my book, 365 Ways to Feel Better and you can access a free video below if you don’t already know how to tap or want a reminder.

I’ll also be answering questions on my social media pages so please connect with me there as anything you’re unsure about is likely to help others, too.

For facebook, my book group (with extra support for people reading the book) is accessible HERE

You can also like my page HERE if you’d like regular updates

I’m on Twitter @wellbeingeve

You can find out more about some of the research around EFT, my approach and access a couple of interviews I did about EFT in general and for trauma for BACP’s trauma conference a few years ago HERE

Hope you find tapping as helpful as I have!

It can be as simple or complex as you want to make it – I’ve shared instructions to the Short Cut for simplicity but a quick Google will bring up loads of resources.  I include EFT as part of some of my coaching if that’s of interest – I’ll also be tagging other EFT practitioners in case they’re more local to you and you want to work face to face.

It’s also worth checking out the Tapping World Summit (HERE) and registering for this free event with loads of big names (created by Nick and Jess Ortner). The world can be your lobster!

Feel share to comment below as well as on social media. I’ll be answering as many questions as possible.

love,

Using diaries to enhance your self-care

Wow. It’s a really long time since I blogged – the last few weeks, I’ve been experimenting with videos. From now on, I’ll be blogging each new video and I’m planning to make them mostly #feelbetterfriday videos as, apparently, it’s better to do such things on the same day each week.

This week’s video is sharing my love of stationery, especially diaries. As well as a blank one for journalling, I use several each year for different purposes:

  • appointments
  • things to do
  • keeping track of finances
  • keeping track of habits and how I’m doing in terms of making the new improved behaviour habitual

The video above shares some simple tools to help you do the same as well as ideas for becoming a mood detective into what helps YOU feel better so you can do more of those things on purpose.

There are also lots of great planners available – I’ve used Danielle LaPorte’s and the Daily Greatness in the past.

What kind of diaries do you use?

What is your top tip?

Wishing you lots of fun in planning your best year yet for 2018.

love,

Eve

Thanks again, Chelmsford Waterstones!

Eve Waterstones Chelmsford

I had a lovely Saturday afternoon at the Chelmsford branch of Waterstones, attempting to look ‘friendly but not creepy’ as people paused to look at my book and I signed copies for those who wanted to buy one.

Looking forward to the next, at Billericay Library (click HERE) on 25th and am also now offering personalised signed copies for people who can’t get to various signings and events but want their own copy or a gift for someone else (click HERE).

love,

I know, I know, but, in case you’ve started your Christmas shopping…

giftideashomepage

I can already hear the outrage. It’s only the start of November! And yet, some people LIKE to sort Christmas and other holiday shopping early. Some people (including me) are already REALLY looking forward to making 2018 the best yet.

If you’re interested, I’ve put together a few potential gift ideas – maybe treats for yourself, maybe a gift for a loved one.

My book, Sleep Yoga classes, 9 Week Chakra Coaching Programme and any integrative therapy session (ie, you can choose which you’d like to include – some coaching alongside yoga? Crystals? NLP? EFT? Meditation? Recently, I’ve been working with yoga and crystals at the same time – really interesting, powerful work) are a few potential gift ideas.

Click HERE for more information and ideas and get in touch if you have any questions.

I work with individuals and groups in Essex (Witham, Colchester and Frinton on Sea) and worldwide via Skype/Vsee and telephone.

I look forward to working with you (and your loved ones!) the rest of this year, in 2018 and beyond.

love,

Eve

My Frinton Literary Festival workshops

EveOct17

It was SUCH a pleasure to facilitate a couple of workshops in one of my favourite places, Frinton on Sea, yesterday.

FrintonLibrary

I was offering a couple of the Community Events and was able to do two very different workshops at the library as different groups showed up in the morning and afternoon.

SeasideEarlyMorning

The morning workshop was more cognitive with a goal setting exercise that participants can apply to other areas of their lives. We did some mind/body connection work to aid confidence, too.

I had a lovely lunch break paddling, reading and enjoying the sea.

BeachLunch

FrintonBeachHuts

Then the afternoon group did some Chair Yoga and a cleansing meditation.

Both groups did a simple breath practice and chose little crystals to ground the workshops.

Gorgeous start to the week!

love,

Eve
