Are you shoulding on yourself?

Are you telling yourself all day, every day, what you should be doing (and feeling bad about what you haven’t done?

Sometimes we have so many ‘shoulds’ it’s difficult to know what we want.

A should is a rule you ‘should’ live up to, a demand you ‘should’ meet, an expectation of how you ‘should’ behave.

  • I should lose weight
  • I should be more assertive
  • I should be more patient
  • I should …

Shoulds are often intended to be motivating, to help us do what we want or what is best for us. In theory our ‘shoulds’ should help us get things done.

But, you may have noticed that even though ‘shoulds’ are supposed to be motivating, what you should do often doesn’t get done!

In this ChangeCamp presentation Andy Hunt will explain three reasons why shoulds don’t work and demonstrate a simple EFT/’tapping’ method to help find and dissolve them.

A little bit of EFT/Tapping experience would be helpful but it’s not essential.
