Balance Your Emotions
Emotions and thoughts affect your heart rhythms, and the core of HeartMath’s method is emotion regulation. Focusing on positive feelings such as appreciation, care or compassion creates dramatic changes in heart rhythms and leads to neural, hormonal and biochemical actions that dissipate stress and result in greater well-being. The benefits of HeartMath’s system are remarkable and far-reaching: lower blood pressure and stress-hormone levels, greater immune system activity and anti-aging hormone levels.
You’ll soon engage your heart’s intelligence to bring emotion, body and mind into balance and create a zone of clarity, where you’ll enjoy optimal health and performance. These changes are the perfect antidote to a fast-paced, sometimes chaotic world. Replace emotional energy drain with new energy and vitality, eliminate judgments of yourself and others, experience the joy of stress-free living and be who you want to be.
