Why is HeartMath Resilience Training a Leader in De-stressing?
Resilience Training is a set of stress management techniques that increase capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, challenge or adversity. Our HeartMath Resilience Training will teach you strategies to build your resilience and boost your ability to "self regulate." The science-based techniques you will learn can change the way your body's physiology responds in stressful situations.

How do stress and different emotional states affect the autonomic nervous system, the hormonal and immune systems, the heart and brain? Over the years we have experimented with different psychological and physiological measures, but it was consistently heart rate variability, or heart rhythms, that stood out as the most dynamic and reflective of inner emotional states and stress. It became clear that negative emotions lead to increased disorder in the heart’s rhythms and in the autonomic nervous system, thereby adversely affecting the rest of the body. In contrast, positive emotions create increased harmony and coherence in heart rhythms and improve balance in the nervous system. The health implications are easy to understand: Disharmony in the nervous system leads to inefficiency and increased stress on the heart and other organs while harmonious rhythms are more efficient and less stressful to the body’s systems.
