Here is a simple tapping routine to release the emotional bonds keeping you stuck in surroundings that are not working toward your best advantage.  Simple tapping, a variation of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Tapping, along the Chinese Medicine Meridians, can help to calm and soothe the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.  Once your mind is calm, your thinking is clearer allowing greater physical and emotional performance.
