Finding yourself scrubbing the nooks and crannies of your kitchen cabinets or folding the laundry when you actually have time to work on your business?

Your preferred procrasti-habit is cleaning…

Your physical body needs to release some energy, or your fight or flight system has taken over and you’re avoiding.

 

You are a Cinderella style procrastinator

Your preferred business procrasti-habits are primarily cleaning and organizing. Anything to get your body moving and out from behind the laptop when you are overwhelmed, anxious or even scared about doing something new in your business.

There’s actually a really good chance that you don’t even like cleaning!

What’s the best thing about being a procrasti-cleaner?

It’s easily identifiable, which makes it easy to change.

Here are some examples of what procrasti-cleaners might find themselves doing INSTEAD of making progress on their business

  • You go to record that live video or reels and spend 30 minutes tidying the background of your video or until the next thing on your calendar for the day “bumps” that video til tomorrow. 
  • Maybe you’ve spent a small fortune in physical planners, trying to organize your time, and your bookmarks are a collection of different online tools you’ve tried for a hot minute. 
  • Or maybe you find yourself using the best part of the day to do laundry or vacuum the house or scrub the kitchen cabinets and floor (a 100% sure sign that I’m avoiding or anxious!), and at the same time the Wicked Witch in your head is verbally abusing you for not wisely using this time to work on your online business.
There's hope to change these procrasti-habits

Imagine this…

You can walk past the pile of laundry to your computer to email your list without hesitation.

You start work creating content as soon as the kids are off to school instead of diving into the pile of books on your desk to find the magic answer to getting motivated.

You can get in and out of Facebook groups in a reasonable timeframe, completing your goal of networking, yet not getting lost in offering all the advice, or just simply distracted by #allthethings.

You spend a resonable amount of time in self-care so that you aren’t pouring from an empty cup, yet you still have time for business and the family without working 16 hours a day.

 

Anxiety

Overwhelm

Confusion

Frustration 

These are the primary reasons why our brain leads us to choose our favorite procrasti-habit instead of #allthethings you said you were going to get done for your business today…this week…last month. 

It’s.  Not.   Your.  Fault. 

 

Procrastination is a favorite method that our brain uses to keep us “safe” and it’s time to challenge that habit

 

Today, the daily stressors – including ones that have NOTHING to do with your biz- put your brain in an almost constant state of fight-flight-freeze, and we find ourselves engaged in our favorite procrasti-habit instead of doing the thing that makes us a little uncomfortable in our business.

So what’s so different about this challenge?

EFT tapping is the tool you didn’t know you needed 

End procrastination without time-blocking, timers, meditation or other time-sucking techniques you’ve tried.

With this 10-minute tool, you’ll turn off the fight-or-flight response that suddenly made the cleanliness of the bathrooms intolerable.

Hi, I’m Sara, and I’ve had all the Procrasti-Princess-Personalities. Click to watch the video below.

Repeat after me: I am not sabotaging myself. My nervous system is in overdrive, and I can do something about that right now.

Enter EFT tapping.

EFT=Emotional Freedom Techniques

EFT tapping works directly to calm down the parts of the brain that are responsible for the fight-flight-freeze response. 

How is this challenge different?

You don’t need more information.  In 4 short days you’ll experience how EFT tapping can transform your procrasti-habits:

  • You’ll know how to do EFT tapping, and use it to feel immediate calming of the nervous system
  • You’ll identify your #1 procrasti-habit that is your go-to when your brain is having a hard time making a decision about something (SPOILER ALERT: it probably has something to do with your mobile device)
  • You’ll use tapping to mitigate your procrasti-habits
  • You’re even likely to become crystal clear on the emotions that trigger your procrasti-habit
What is EFT tapping?

Emotional Freedom Techniques use tapping on meridian points to rewire the emotional response that the brain is having to a perceived situation. What that means is that we can take the emotion that you are feeling when you think about taking that next important step in your business (like doing that live video, starting an email list, or publishing that blog or website) and use EFT tapping to calm down the fight or flight response that is causing you to procrastinate instead of doing the thing.

How can EFT tapping help my procrastination?

Example: Sara (a hypothetical online business owner) was planning to go live in her Facebook group today for the first time in a month. First she tidied up the area where she was going to go live because she doesn’t want people to think she’s a hot mess, and then she brings some dishes into the kitchen and 30 minutes later finds herself deep cleaning her kitchen floor in the middle of the day when the kids are at school and the house is quiet. 

Sara is procrasti-cleaning to avoid doing the video. The next thing she knows, the kids are home and she has to put off the video for yet another day. 

What could she have done differently? 

Sara recognizes that she is avoiding something because she actually hates cleaning. Sara could have set the cleaning bucket aside (after all, the cleaning can be done when the kids are home), and started tapping, asking herself how she feels when she thinks about doing the video.

Sara identifies that “I feel pressured to put valuable content up in my group everyday and I question if it really matters.” If she stops to do some EFT tapping now, Sara can harness the power of EFT tapping to voice how she is feeling and to calm her stress response

After tapping, it is much more likely that Sara will go do the video – she will make progress instead of procrastinating – because she has used EFT tapping to reduce the intensity of the pressure she feels. Now, her body and brain are not sending the same fight or flight response that was making her procrastinate before she did the tapping.
