The Cure For Summer Busyness

[Posted August 9th, 2011] by KimRuchAlegant

Remember how back in February and March we couldn’t wait until the lazy days of summer?  What happened to that? Graduations, graduation parties,  forth of July parties, hosting friend and family get-togethers, etc.  Even our vacations usually consist of running around! 

Why is it that when summer arrives we continue in our crazy busyness instead of taking time to slow down and relax?  Why can’t we just enjoy our lives?  And for most people, even when we do take time to relax, we fret about what we should be doing, or when we go back to what we were doing, we fret about the time we wasted.

Why do we do this?  Several reasons, I think.  These may not popular, but ponder these before you dismiss them.  One is that is our society places much value on being busy.  If we’re not busy, we’re not successful.  Therefore, we have much invested in being busy.  (especially as moms, right?)

Do many outwardly successful people that you know talk about how much fun their life is?  How peaceful they feel?  How fulfilled?  Or do they always talk about EVERYTHING THEY HAVE TO DO, like it’s such a burden.  If busyness is how we gauge success, when why do we complain about it?  Tap, Tap, Tap.

Another reason I think many people can’t relax (and I myself was one of these people until lots of EFT and other releasing work), is because if we sit down for too long, our internal “stuff” comes up. (this is not a conscious decision, mind you.  it’s our subconscious protecting us)   What stuff?  Anything we don’t want to face about ourselves or our lives.  Could be anger or sadness related to childhood, our marriage, our job, our children.  Staying busy means we don’t have time to be introspective.  We don’t have to look at our stuff.

But when we don’t look at our stuff, we never process it so we can move on. Talk therapy brings up our issues, but mostly just reminds us of them without removing the trigger.  Now, talk therapy with tapping, that’s a way to process and remove.  Working with a coach that uses releasing techniques (such as EFT or intuitive energy work) to help you feel better is another way.

Let’s do some tapping on summer busyness:

Karate Chop:  Even though I’m so incredibly busy, I love and accept myself anyway.  Even though I can’t sit down for too long, because I don’t want to think, I accept who I am and how I feel.  Even though I wanted my summer to be relaxing, and it is anything but, I choose to do things differently now.

Eyebrow:  I’m so busy!
Side of the Eye:  Busy, Busy, Busy
Under the Eye: Life is supposed to be busy, right?
Under Nose:  Busyness = success, right?
Chin: I thought my summer would be relaxing
Collarbone: It certainly hasn’t been
Under Arm:  What happened to the lazy days of summer?
Top of Head:  I want my summer back!

Eyebrow: Even when I have time, I can’t sit down and do nothing
Side of the Eye: Sitting down is lazy, not successful
Under the Eye: But I want to relax
Under Nose:  What a conflict!
Chin: I want to relax, but I don’t have time
Collarbone: What if I could relax?
Under Arm: Wouldn’t that be nice?
Top of Head:  Can I allow myself to relax?

Take a deep breath.  If you feel triggered by any of this, do that tapping again.  Otherwise continue on…

Now for some positive tapping:

Eyebrow: I’m ready to relax now
Side of the Eye: Next time I have free time, I choose to relax, rather than think up another project
Under the Eye: I’m allowing myself to relax
Under Nose:  I’m entitled to a break
Chin: I can take one day off a week and the world won’t fall apart
Collarbone: I feel more relaxed already
Under Arm: I’m done with all that busyness
Top of Head:  Relaxation is a priority for me now.

Do these tapping sequences as many times as you need, varying the words to fit your specific situation.

Now, stop wishing for a relaxing summer and, with the help of tapping, create one!
