This is an altered copy of a blog from last year. It will keep you sane should the pressure be getting to you.
When a Superwoman feels challenged! A tapping resource
We rate the negative issue – O is low, 10 is- Action Time!
We state where we feel the distress in our body eg in our head, on our shoulders, in our legs (If you are indeed a Superwoman you would have understood all that already !) Begin….
Karate point 3 times
Even though I think I may be trying to cram too much into my day, I Love And Accept Myself Deeply And Completely( If unable to say that, say ‘ I am growing to like myself as a person)
Even tho I might seriously be attempting to do too much, I love and A M D A C
Even tho I’m actually knackered but pretending I’m not! I still can love and accept M D A C
Tap on all these point gently with fingers
Top Head This isn’t good
Corner of Eye Gosh! I can’t do it all
Side of Eye What will they all say if I can’t do it all?
Under Eye Maybe I can pretend I CAN do it all, just for a little longer
Under Nose Yes that’s what I’ll do
Under Mouth I WILL MANAGE
Collar bone I WILL MANAGE
Under Arm Oh dear, I’m not actually sure I can manage
Take a few deeps breaths. Consider what number of stress level you are now at and repeat
T H Why can’t I manage?
C E What’s going wrong?
S E I don’t believe this!
U E Why can’t I keep being Superwoman?
U N It’s still a blooming 9
U L My (Whatever your discomfort is) Stomach is still churning
C B I just can’t believe this
U A Goodness me, maybe I can’t DO IT ALL
Deep breaths- Allow reality to creep in and change the Karate phrase- actually, to whatever you want – but try this if it helps!
Even tho I actually am just like everyone else but I can barely admit to it, I do feel a bit overburdened,
But, I love and accept myself deeply and completely.
Even tho I will admit that I need to ease up otherwise I might not actually enjoy the festive season, I Love A A M D A C
Even tho I do admit I need to SLOW UP – I can STILL Love and accept M D A C
T H I need to slow down
C E I accept I need to slow down
S E ahh! I do need to ease up because I FEEL TIRED!
U E I need a rest!
U N Easing up
U M Being kinder to ME
C B I choose to ease up on what I try to achieve at Christmas………………( or what is relevant to YOU)
U A I allow myself to be kinder to ME
Repeat and take Deep breaths
T H I allow myself time
C E I give myself time
S E I ease up on all that I THINK I need to achieve
U E Wanting to survive Christmas
U N If I need to, I will tell loved ones how I feel (but that could be very difficult for me!)
U M However, I recognise I do actually need to look after myself
C B Gosh that feels nice
U A I could get used to this! I really could get used to this!
Deep breaths. Consider what Number between 0 and 10 you are now aware of – Consider where you feel or NOW feel discomfort.
For those superwomen who know how to keep a balance – Keep doing it!
For those who recognise that THIS COULD HELP – please practice as often as you can.
Happy Christmas Wishes to all

Apologies for lack of ability to get it all in line neatly – it’s the message that counts
