EFT Tapping for Sleep

Updated: Jan 2


Affirmation: I sleep soundly and deeply and wake up refreshed and ready for my day


Tapping on specific points on the body can help release physical and emotional tension and promote relaxation.


Start by creating a safe and tranquil environment for yourself, making sure you are all ready to drift off into sleep. Make any adjustments you need to make for comfort. 


Now that you’ve prepared your surroundings and settled in for the night, begin by welcoming a sense of relaxation and peace into your mind and body. 


Take a few deep breaths to center yourself and bring awareness to your body and mind. And, using three fingertips, begin by gently tapping the Side of Hand (SH) point as you repeat the following statements out loud:


EFT Tapping Point Side of Hand

”I choose to have a really good night's sleep, and I deeply love and accept myself."


“I choose to have a really restful night's sleep. I'm letting go of my day now, and I choose to deeply love and honor myself."


“I am choosing to sleep soundly and deeply and wake up refreshed and ready for an amazing day tomorrow, and I choose to deeply love and accept myself."


Take a deep, relaxed inhale and exhale. Using 2 fingertips, gently tap each point as long as it takes to say the following reminder phrases…

To maximize the effectiveness of EFT for better sleep, it’s beneficial to combine it with other sleep hygiene practices. These practices include establishing a consistent sleep schedule, creating a soothing bedtime routine, optimizing your sleep environment, and avoiding stimulating activities or substances close to bedtime.


By integrating EFT with these practices, you can enhance the overall quality of your sleep.


Sweet dreams 😴🐑🐑🐑
