Groggy and can’t take a nap? This blog teaches you an easy tool for an energy boost.

Next time you need an energy boost, try the Four Thumps. This is a simple body-based technique that will help you get your energy flowing. The technique comes to us from Donna Eden. Practice the technique right now by watching the video below and following along. You can also download written instructions in EnglishSpanish, and Portuguese.

How it works

Tap lightly under your eyes. Then tap or rub under your collarbones, on the middle of your chest, and on your bottom rib.

Follow along with the video above and give the Four Thumps a try! Take notice of how your body feels both before and after you use the technique. This technique is just one of many you can use to get your energy flowing again.

Why it works

When you use techniques like the Four Thumps, you are interacting with your body’s energy system and increasing the flow of energy through your system. This technique turns your circuits back on and gets your energy flowing again.

This technique is also helpful if you feel discouraged, numb, shocked, or paralyzed.
