Summer Holiday Hell

Ok so you’ve booked your summer holiday. Got your bags packed, your tickets and passport at the ready. You get to the airport in plenty of time and that’s where it all starts to go wrong! Your flight has been delayed and you begin to feel the stress kick in. 


Several years ago this exact thing happened to me. I must admit that I completely freaked out and didn’t handle it at all well! Our flight was delayed which meant we missed our connecting flight. We then had to fly a different route with an extra stop over. I was really stressed by this stage and didn’t handle all the extra security at Miami airport at all well. By the time we reached our destination, we were 12 hours late and our luggage was missing. We had 2 hours sleep before starting our tour and I was in a right mood! My boyfriend managed to calm me down (God bless him!).  We were without our luggage for 3 days and it took me until the end of the holiday to see the funny side. It would’ve been a whole lot easier if I had had EFT to calm myself down. Well thankfully now I do! My boyfriend is very grateful too!!!

You can stay calm and enjoy your holiday even though it doesn’t go exactly as you planned it would. You just need to do a bit of tapping.
Tap on each individual thing that could go wrong with your holiday. Starting with the one that would stress you or upset you the most. 

Examples include:

  • Stressing whilst packing
  • Getting lost on the way to the airport
  • Arriving late at the airport
  • Flight being delayed or cancelled
  • Missing your connection
  • Lost luggage
  • Missing the bus to the resort
  • The hotel not being what you expected
  • Getting food poisoning 

Use a different setup statement and reminder phrase for each of these different aspects and keep tapping until you have covered them all.

Here is a tapping script that covers the flight being delayed, your luggage going missing and the hotel being sub-standard. These are some of the most common things that can go wrong and stress you out before your holiday has really begun.

Tap on the Karate Chop whilst repeating three times:

  • Even though I really want the whole holiday to go smoothly and it will stress me out if anything goes wrong, I’m open to the possibility that I can remain calm no matter what happens
  • Even though I want this holiday to be perfect, I’ve been waiting all year for it and I just can’t handle anything going wrong, I accept myself and my feelings anyway
  • Even though I want the holiday to go smoothly and that there are no flight delays, lost luggage or sub-standard accommodation, I’m open to dealing with any mishaps calmly and rationally

Eyebrow: I want this holiday to be perfect
Side of Eye: I’ve waited the whole year for this holiday
Under Eye: It’s so important that I be able to relax on this holiday
Under Nose: If anything goes wrong it will spoil it all
Chin: I hope the flight is on time
Collarbone: It will stress me out if it is delayed
Under Arm: It has to go perfectly otherwise I can’t switch off
Top of Head: If my luggage goes missing, I’ll feel so anxious I won’t enjoy my holiday
Eyebrow: I just can’t cope if the accommodation isn’t what I expected
Side of Eye: If my bags get lost I’ll stress right out
Under Eye: I want this holiday to go smoothly otherwise it’ll be ruined
Under Nose: I hate it when something goes wrong
Chin: If the hotel isn’t up to my standards, I’ll want to go home
Collarbone: It’s so frustrating if the flight is delayed
Under Arm:  If the holiday doesn’t start perfectly I’ll feel stressed and I won’t enjoy myself
Top of Head: I get so upset if the flight is delayed
Eyebrow: I’m open to remaining calm no matter what
Side of Eye: What if I could just relax if the flight was delayed
Under Eye: Maybe I can enjoy my holiday if my luggage goes missing
Under Nose: Maybe the flight being delayed just won’t affect me
Chin: What if I could remain calm even if my luggage went missing
Collarbone: Maybe I can cope if the hotel isn’t up to my standards
Under Arm: What if I can relax and enjoy this holiday even if it isn’t perfect
Top of Head: I’m sure I can focus on having a good time anyway

Use your words where appropriate to really tune in to how you feel. Remember to keep tapping until the issue has fully resolved.
