Tapping Meditation: Overcoming Resistance to Exercise

Written by: Nick Ortner

If you’re not exercising, you’re just not going to be at your best. - Nick OrtnerMy wife Brenna knows exactly when I’m planning to go exercise. Maybe the shorts and t-shirt are a clue, but it’s also when I get super chatty and procrastinate!

If part of you procrastinates about exercising, Tapping can help. I’ve put together a short, under-12-minute Tapping Meditation for you on “Overcoming Resistance to Exercise”. I can’t make it long because you’ve got to go and exercise!

And you’ll find that if you listen to this meditation a few times, you’ll get insights into what’s actually stopping you from exercising. From there, you’ll form new, positive habits.

The importance of exercise is almost cliché, but I PROMISE you, it’s one of the absolute keys to living your most productive, happy, fulfilled life. If you’re not exercising, you’re just not going to be at your best. Full stop. End of discussion.  So try this short Tapping Meditation and then let me know about your workout.

It’s my gift for you today because we all need to get out there and move. And I’ve made it available for you to download and keep, so you can have it on your phone or iPod when you need it most.

(I’ve also included the transcript if you’d rather read and tap along.) And please do let me know of your experience using this meditation. If you’re new to Tapping and realize that NOW is the best time to get started, you can learn the basics in minutes here.

AND… my NY Times bestselling book, “The Tapping Solution,” goes into even more detail on how to clear out the old baggage and those mental patterns depleting your energy and drive to move. So if you haven’t already, you can pick up your copy here.

Until next time…

Keep Tapping!

P.S. Make sure to share this meditation with anyone you know who might need it. Perhaps you can even challenge each other to work out – nothing better than an accountability partner. They’ll forever thank you for it!

    I just came across this meditation. I have created so much distraction and excuse around exercise. I formally exercised religiously. I was passionate about it, I loved it, I enjoyed it. Something shifted. I thought maybe my hormones changed or I just was “over it”.
    Well- it wasn’t until today after tapping on why I suddenly realized why I have been completely disinterested and almost apathetic to it. Eight years ago my best friend died suddenly and traumatically. She was my exercise partner, my motivator, the pull for me to get up and going. We exercised together so often. If we didn’t do an exercise together we talked about our individual exercise that day. I am blown away at what I discovered today. Clearly I can see that after her death I built a wall of excuses and justifications around not exercising but I never thought to get right down to the why. I don’t want to work out because I’m reminded of how deeply I miss her! This is a huge epiphany for me. I didn’t know I was that blocked off. I created 8 years of resistance to exercising thinking it was something wrong with me. That I was just being lazy. That I just settled into this life of feeling bad about not exercising and not actually doing anything about it!
    I will continue to tap on this. To tap through this pain that her death hit me in every way imaginable; including my disinterest in exercising. After tapping- I accept that this has happened to me. I accept this resistance and I completely and deeply love myself.
    Thank you Tapping Solution! 🙏🏼

      That’s such a wonderful insight, Jamie! It’s also a great example of how our emotional connection to others greatly affects so many areas of our lives. While missing your friend is natural, your continued tapping will help eliminate that resistance to exercise. And who knows, maybe you’ll even make a new friend at the gym to partner with. 😉
