The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt by the heart.
HeartMath Stress Management
When the wisdom of the heart replaces the chatter of the mind, the power of love flows forth for it is only with the heart that one can truly see, because what is essential, is invisible to the eye!
As a HeartMath certified coach, I will help you create a customized program of change, capable of transforming your physical, emotional and mental well-being simply by accessing the wisdom of your heart. The science of HeartMath uses positive emotion to achieve health and well-being through the understanding of heart/brain communication patterns. Addressing self-limiting beliefs and negative thought patterns allows for a healthy emotional stress response which will bring your mind, body and spirit into a coherent, harmonious state thus enabling transformational health, wellness and performance outcomes.
HeartMath targets positive emotions and the powerful intelligence of the heart to:
Promote secure and balanced feelings to engage the heart and slow down the mind;
Effectively deal with stressful situations with a healthy balanced perspective so that solutions become clearer and more accessible;
Engage feelings of love and belonging which studies have shown has a greater impact on health and longevity than physical factors such as age, blood pressure, cholesterol and smoking.
Train the body to be able to activate a coherent state, reducing the risk of all disease exacerbated by stress.
Stimulate the bodies own natural regenerative processes to improve long term memory, enhance short term cognitive function, regulate sleep patterns and energy management, and reduce major health risks including cholesterol, triglycerides and high blood pressure.
HeartMath measures Heart Rate Variability (HRV) which is the timing changes between the beats of the heart.
HRV is a marker of physiological resilience and behavioral flexibility.
HRV reflects our ability to adapt effectively to stress and environmental demands, indicating the status of our emotional and overall wellbeing
Low HRV is associated with increased risk of future heart health problems
HRV has a major impact on brain function affecting:
Mental clarity and attention span
Perception and learning
Problem solving abilities
HRV is affected by our negative thoughts, behaviors and actions, which increases stress and affects physical pain.
HeartMath promotes coherence not relaxation
Relaxation is a low energy state in which the individual rests both the body and the mind disengaging from cognitive and emotional processes.
Coherence involves the active engagement of positive emotions and is a natural performance enhancer. It is experienced as a calm, balanced, yet energized and responsive state that is conducive to everyday functioning and interaction including the performance of tasks requiring mental activity, focus, problem solving and decision making, as well as physical activity and coordination.
Acknowledging your heart intelligence and its importance for making choices provides an intuitive and effective knowing that will serve all areas of your life!
