Did you know that positive emotions create positive
physiological benefits in your body?
It’s not the event or situation that creates the stress. It’s how we respond or react to stress. Emotions have a powerful impact on the human body, whether or not those emotions are remembered or in the moment. Positive emotions like appreciation, gratitude, and kindness feel good and are renewing for us. They help the heart and other systems in our body synchronize and work in greater health and energy. This is what neurocardioloists call “coherence”. Using the heart to focus the mind to develop our mind-heart coherence is a core HeartMath tool that is easy and always available.
Research has shown that a shift in heart rhythms to a more coherent level creates a favorable cascade of neural, hormonal and biochemical events that benefit the entire body. This means that learning to generate increased heart rhythm coherence, by sustaining positive emotions, not only benefits the entire body, but also profoundly affects how we perceive, think, feel, and perform.

The HeartMath Resilience Advantage™ Workshop
Tools and strategies to strengthen resiliency, improve communication and performance
HeartMath has worked with Fortune 500 companies, health care systems and social service sectors, such as educational institutions, the military and law enforcement. The HeartMath Resilience Advantage workshop offers tools and technology to help you identify when your thoughts or actions are reactions, and gives simple to use steps to shift from reaction to coherence.
Your HeartMath certified trainer, Betsy Barlow, will introduce you to this evidence-based program where you will learn practical tools and strategies to build resiliency and improve decision-making. Based upon the Institute of HeartMath’s research on the physiology of optimal performance, you will learn practical strategies that increase well-being, mental clarity and emotional stability. This HeartMath program offers practical tools to respond effectively and quickly to pressure, emotional challenge and change. Many years of client results have shown significant, sustained improvements in health costs, productivity, stress levels, resilience, cognition and emotional well-being.
At the program’s core are easy-to- learn self-regulation tools and resilience-building practices that help individuals become more balanced, aware and high functioning. Participants learn how their responses to challenges or stress can deplete their resiliency. They learn how, through improved self-awareness, they can effectively reduce stress, improve health and well-being and build effective relationships with colleagues, clients and family.
The Resilience Advantage workshop can be delivered in several different formats, allowing for scheduling flexibility.
Half day, full day
