I have been contemplating for some time, writing an EFT article

on procrastination, but I simply didn’t get around to do it. 

Then, when I finally decided to focus my attention, I sat here looking at the empty page for a long time…

Has this ever happened to you?  Have you had an important project and you didn’t do it until the last minute?  Is it hard for you to get things done?  For example, you might have the desire to change something in your life, but somehow you don’t take decisive action.  Do you know what is stopping you?

One dictionary defines  a ‘PROCRASTINATOR”   as someone who delays action or postpones work out of laziness or habitual carelessness.

You probably agree that these  are strong words, “laziness or habitual carelessness/”   But…

  • Are laziness and lack or attention really the reason why you procrastinate?
  • Are there other fundamental reasons behind procrastination?
  • Do you think that procrastination may be  caused by childhood experiences?
  • Are you delaying or postponing your healing, your success and feeling good about yourself based on those childhood experiences?

What if there was a way to finally transform “procrastination  into action?”   How will you change if you finally decided that it is time to heal your life? click here: https://eftmindandbody.com/services

We are including a tapping script and video so you can begin to clear this habit of procrastination.

Note:  These videos and tapping scripts are generic in nature and not reflective of an actual EFT session with us.  Our sessions are specifically designed for YOU, Your special Needs, Circumstances and Specific Events in Your Life.  We help you neutralize the destructive emotions of anger, grief, self-doubt, fear, nervousness, lack of confidence, emotional pain or any other negative emotion, trauma  or memory that robs you of  your joy.  Then you are imprinted with positive beliefs and emotions for permanent change and well-being.  If you agree to follow this EFT Round,  you are agreeing to take full responsibility for your own well-being.  Further, these EFT phrases might trigger your own memories and emotions, write them down and then do EFT focusing on them, until you do not feel an emotional intensity.  You  deserve peace, so keep tapping.


Tap 7 to 10 times on your  karate chop point  (side of hand) or on your favorite point and say:

I have the intention to clear procrastination out of my life.  I intend to get things done today!

When you think about  not being able to accomplish what you desire because you have the habit of postponing it,   what emotion do you feel?  Where do you feel that emotion in your body?

Rate the intensity of your emotion on a scale of 0-10 (SUDS  Rating-Subjective Units of Distress)

10 meaning – your highest intensity (I feel terrible)

0 meaning  – no intensity at all  (I feel happy)    *  Remember to drink water before and during tapping

While rubbing the sore spot on your chest or tapping the karate chop point of either hand (7-10 times) Repeat the following EFT Phrases aloud:


Even though I have this frustrating habit of procrastination,  I deeply and completely love and respect myself

Even though for one reason or for many reasons,  I just can’t get things done,  I deeply and completely love and forgive myself for anything that I have done to contribute to my procrastination  problem

Even though it is the strangest thing,  I say that I want to accomplish my goals, but then I do everything in my power so I don’t reach my success!  I accept how I feel and how I react

Even though I don’t know why, but I just can’t move forward,  I accept myself and I accept the fact that I am stuck

Even though it is a real problem, that I cannot get things done,  I am open to the possibility that I can change because I do want to finish my projects

  Now tap on the following energy points while repeating your negative reminder phrases:  If possible tap on both sides of the face and body. (Use 3 or 4 fingers of one hand to tap on the energy points)

Crown of head:  I procrastinate in life

Beginning of eyebrow:  It is my habit

Side of eye:  I don’t know what is wrong with me!

Under eye:  I just cannot get things done

Under nose:  And then everybody is questioning me and giving me a hard time

Chin:  Did you do it?

Collarbone:  Why didn’t you do it?

Under arm:  I cannot move forward

Crown of head:  I am afraid to try something new!

Beginning of eyebrow:  I cannot get things done

Side of eye:  I am afraid that I am going to fail

Under eye:  I am sure that I will be a failure

Under nose:  What if I am success?

Chin:  Success frightens me too!

Collarbone:  I am feeling so confused

Under arm:  I have all these fears

Crown of head:  What if I could release all these fears and easily do what I want to do.  I am open to that

Take a slow healing breath in and out and release this procrastination habit,  release it from every neural pathway in the brain                                                                                                                                                         

How do you feel?

Rate your emotional intensity level on a scale of 0-10, do several rounds until your intensity is down to ZERO.

Now tap  REFRAMING AND POSITIVE CHOICES on each of the following energy points:

Crown of head:  What if could release this procrastination habit?

Beginning of eyebrow:  I am allowing myself to change

Side of eye: I would love to see my dreams fulfilled

Under eye:  I want to be recognized by my merits and my talents

Under nose:  Maybe, I just wasn’t getting things done so people will pay attention to me

Chin:  The problem is that it was the wrong kind of attention

Collarbone:  Sometimes when I do good things, I never get the recognition

Under arm:  Maybe as a child I learned to delay things so I could get some attention

Crown of head:  But I am an adult now, and I am acting in life with the mind of a little kid

Beginning of eyebrow:  I have decided today to change this old pattern

Side of eye:  I choose to be eager to try something new

Under eye:  I no longer need people’s approval to live my life

Under nose:  I am living my life on my own terms.  It is about time

Chin:  I am giving myself permission to reach out for the stars

Collarbone:  I am not postponing my actions any longer

Under arm:  I am clearing all the reasons why I procrastinate

Crown of head:  And I am feeling confident about achieving my goals.  It is getting easier to get things done and I feel great!

Take a slow healing breath in and out and relax your mind and body!

“Gratitude Process”

Put your hand on the middle of your chest (your heart center) and tap while repeating aloud:

I am grateful because I am getting things done

I am grateful because I am taking action

I really appreciate that I am feeling so confident

I am grateful because I am achieving my  goals

I am grateful because my dreams are coming true

I am grateful because I am embracing my success

Just remember, “Clearing the Habit of Procrastination  and  the beliefs  and patterns that no longer serve you, frees you so You can Love Yourself Unconditionally and then Love Others”

So my questions for you are:

Is procrastination blocking you from healing your life, your past or childhood?

How will your life change if you were free from the habit of procrastination?

What action are you willing to take today to ensure that you achieve your dreams?
