In the summer of 2013, I read NIck Ortner's The Tapping Solution - and quickly added a stress & pain relief tool to my routine. Tapping works. Jessica Ortner (Nick's sister) recently released The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence - and it's another winner. Jessica tackles emotional eating, confidence, exercise, and self-care (among many other weighty topics).
What I loved... There's a mix of practical advice, real life situations, and motivational quotes throughout the book. Jessica has done a terrific job of addressing all of the obstacles that pop up on the journey to self-care. The chapter on The Power of Beliefs resonated a lot. Jessica writes,
"As we being to identify limiting beliefs, we often find that we have many of them and that they are spread across different areas of our lives. Over time, these beliefs become the larger story we're telling ourselves about who we are and what's possible for us. Once we use tapping to address the limiting beliefs that have shaped our story, we can create a new story and make incredible progress in ways that feel natural & enjoyable."
I eat well and I exercise - I generally take pretty good care of myself. Even so, I know that there are some limiting beliefs about weight & appearance that hold me back from feeling confident. It's great to read a book that addresses the underlying beliefs, rather than simply laying out a daily menu & exercise routine that can be followed short term.
I know that I'll be incorporating many of Jessica's tapping sequences into my daily routine!
