As Dr. Rick Henson shared with us back in Podcast 349, it is important that we spend time not just feeling positive emotions, but reveling in them. By doing this we can do more than enjoy feeling good in the moment, we can turn it into a habit for life.
For most of us, including me, spending a lot of time feeling celebratory isn’t the most natural experience.
Celebration can feel embarrassing. It can feel boastful. It can even feel egotistical.
This week we talk and tap about how celebration can make us feel uncomfortable AND tapping in the spirit of celebration. All the tapping scripts from this audio can be found below the audio player.
