Stress Relief, Resilience and Productivity
Let's move from Anxiety to Harmony
We often cannot do away with the causes of stress, but we can change how we react to themDavid Ward
Stress on the human system sabotages all our attempts to reach optimum performance and wellbeing. The good news is that we can learn how to manage and reverse the damage stress can cause; at individual and organizational levels.
Stress is a term used to describe the wear and tear the body experiences in reaction to everyday challenges, tensions and pressures. Too much stress wears down the immune system, increasing the risk of everything from colds to cancer. Chronic stress can contribute to heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, depression and sleep disorders.
The HeartMind psychophysiological system is unique in that it is grounded in science, much of it developed at the Institute of HeartMath in Boulder Creek California. The research puts our understanding of the heart into a practical, businesslike and common-sense way, that is useful in everyday life. It is also easy to learn. At HeartMind we have integrated all the best and latest research in neuroscience and psychophysiology with age old practices from the ancient wisdoms to bring the fastest and most sustaining methods of stress relief. These include the HeartMath emWave biofeedback device which for the first time shows us what is happening in our nervous systems in real-time.
The HeartMind System is an innovative approach to stress relief based on the fact that we can’t just think our way there. The mind on its own is not enough. It requires something more. It takes Heart.
You can’t eliminate stress from your life, but you can change how you react to it. People who feel good, do good.
We believe that resilience to stress is the greatest legacy that we can leave with our clients and future generations. This resilience must grow and be sustainable for future well-being and productivity in companies.
Resilience to stress and the heart power of discernment (choice making and the true use of the Will) are the greatest legacies that we can leave for our children. Releasing our own stress, the stress in organisations and the stress on educators makes this possible.
We need to develop and use the "heart-felt" power of mindfullness and compassion, at home, at work, at play and at school, so that we can pass these positive emotions on to the generations that will build a better world.
Even more than the power of positive thinking, we need to develop the power of positive feelings.
HeartMind integrates the very latest research into neuroscience, positive psychology, biofeedback, psychophysiology, heart energies, immunology and computer technology to achieve these goals of wellbeing
