EP247: How to Naturally Reduce Stress and Cravings in Under 5 Minutes a Day with Alex Ortner

Anxiety. Resentment. Sadness. Overwhelm. 

Feelings so many of us are experiencing right now. 

And feelings that can negatively impact our health if left unaddressed.

Fortunately, there is a SIMPLE research-backed way to work through negative emotions and shift your body into relaxation mode in under 5 minutes. 

It’s called tapping, or the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).  

EFT has been empirically shown to reduce cortisol (stress hormone) levels more than talk therapy AND reduce cravings for foods like chocolate.  

So if you’re feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, sad, and want to learn about a simple way to feel more relaxed anytime, anywhere, please check out today’s podcast with co-owner of The Tapping Solution, Alex Ortner. 

Here are some of the things you’ll learn:

  • What is EFT?
  • How to consciously shift from the stress response to relaxation response (and why it matters)
  • How to access your full brain to make your best decisions
  • Why tapping can rewire the brain and reduce cravings
  • HOW to tap
  • A fun way to teach kids to tap

And so much more!

Learning to relax is one of the most important things we can do for our health! I hope this conversation inspires you to make it part of your daily routine...
