Book Blurb:
You’re in college and college is stressful. Your stress impacts every facet of life, from classes to grades to work commitments. Even your physical health can be affected. Studies show that college students like you now face more stress than ever, leaving you with less time for relaxation and self-care. When you’re already overburdened, the idea of finding a way to relieve stress sounds like one more way to add extra stress to your life. But, what if you can relieve the stress of college in minutes? What if homework didn’t have to be so hard, and you did have time for school and fun? Tapped Out For College Students: Stress Relief Using EFT, is a guidebook that empowers college students like you, allowing you to reduce your level of stress and opening the door to success in college and in life.

In Tapped Out, college students are introduced to our unique BESD (Because, Emotions, Sensations, and Distress) system, which easily guides them through the tapping process. Once you’ve defined your personal BESD related to a specific issue, you can easily translate this into a tapping session. The book is full of tapping scripts relating to the most common stress-inducing issues you face in college. Students can tap through the scripts as they are written, or they can personalize them, using the responses they develop using the BESD system. 

The Table of Contents is the perfect starting place, allowing students to pinpoint their issue and flip to the appropriate section of the book. Some of the topics covered in the book include time management, homework, exams, relationships, money, health, and preparing for the real world following college.
Students no longer have to be stressed throughout their college career. With Tapped Out as a companion, college students can face the college landscape calmly. This unique book, intended to be used as and when needed, empowers students to control their reactions and respond to each situation successfully. College is stressful. Tapped Out for College Students can help.



My Review

What a fantastic book! If only I had had this when my kids went to college, I would have fewer grey hairs that's for sure. I wanted to read Tapped Out for College Students because I wanted to see if I could recognize any of our mistakes or at least tips that might have prevented all the stress that the whole family was going through, but more importantly, my kids. Now that my kids are grown and have families of their own, this is going to come in handy for when that day comes that my precious grandchildren will be heading off to college.

First, the authors are thorough. They left no questions unanswered. They took me through the different stress builders - failing grades, balancing jobs with going to school, getting homesick. And, yes, both my kids were homesick and this book would have surely helped. No college guidance counselors could have zeroed in on all the problems and helped more than this book could have.  Not steering you wrong, this is a really great book for college kids to help them with that very important transition in live - moving out of mom and dad's and into a world they've never been before. Just wish this was on the market years ago. I highly recommend Tapped Out for College Students as a must have for your college bound little darlin!

For creativity, writing style and potential to help college bound kids, I give this book 5 book trees!
