EFT is a healing tool that helps us in catching a good sleep by keeping our mind relaxed.
It has been observed that EFT provides positive results for emotional, physical and performance issues. The therapy is similar to acupressure therapy but instead of using needles; tapping methodology is used on various parts of the body.

EFT’s main purpose is to aid us in feeling powerful against all odds. It helps clears different kinds of fears and anxiety issues that keep us awake. It relaxes our muscles and thoughts from the physical and emotional discomforts like:
The therapy is quick to do, simple to use, and quickly heals the body from pain caused by stress and anxiety. The technique includes a mental exercise and can be practiced any time of the day.
EFT can be done within 10 minutes so you can easily fit it into your busy schedule.
To start doing the therapy, it is important to find out about the negative or emotional issues that are causing your sleep disorder problem. Remember that the main motive of EFT is to help you get rid of emotional imbalances and make you feel more positive each day. Simply, rate the issues on a scale of 1-10. 10 being the most important cause of lack of sleep, and 0 will be the least.
It is recommended to write down the problems on paper so that none of the issues that are constraining quality sleep are left out. It is vital to remind the mind of all the points that hurts the most and disturbs sleep. It is important to not shy away from your problems.
After scaling your worries and writing them down, it’s time to come up with a very specific “setup statement.” The setup statement is also called the “reminder phrase.” For example: ‘Even after facing _______, I completely forgive and wholeheartedly accept my situation.’
You can also use any of the following traditional phrases to use as your setup statement:
While constantly repeating the power statement / setup, tap through all of the below mentioned important points of the body at least 7 times. It is important not to focus on counting but, rather, to happily repeat the setup statement as you’re tapping.

After repeating the second tapping round of Emotional Freedom Technique, keep in mind that you are free of emotional and disturbed feelings or any pain now, and you will never feel this feeling again. You can take some of the following phrases and repeat it in your mind:
