Summary for Combining Tapping With Vagus Nerve Stimulation and Box Breathing:
To combine tapping with vagus nerve activation, start by tapping the Karate Chop point or Collarbone point. Hum a favorite song, engage in random humming, or chant AUM or other mantra type sound as you continue tapping. Continue the process for one to four minutes or for whatever time you choose. To finish, place hands to heart, right hand over left or left over right, either is fine. Allow a loving in and in out breath, smile, and say the word "Peace".
To combine tapping with Box Breathing, begin tapping your Karate Chop or Collarbone point. Inhale through your nose for about four seconds, hold your breath for about four seconds, exhale gentle through pursed lips for about four seconds, and allow the lungs to remain empty for about four seconds. Continue the process for one to four minutes or for whatever time you choose. Close by placing hands to heart, allowing a gentle, loving in and out breath, and saying "Peace" with the exhalation.
Remember, modify either of these methods as needed to stay calm and comfortable.
