HeartMath Brain Fitness Program – Connecting Heart and Mind for Optimal Performance
Emotional stress, the strains of modern life and aging all can hasten cognitive decline. Memory, focus and concentration are especially vulnerable, but you can actually learn to take care of your brain, improve mental functions, remain alert and develop your brainpower.
Explore how your brain works and learn how to make it work better.
The new HeartMath Brain Fitness Program explores the critical relationship between our emotions and the brain. It describes the heart’s role in shaping and controlling our emotions and communicating with the brain. When used along with the Inner Balance trainer, you quickly learn how to raise your heart coherence to promote emotional stability, optimal cognitive performance and harmonious function across all of your body’s systems. This wonderful research-based work lays out a practical and simple method for using HeartMath techniques and technology to improve and sustain your cognitive abilities throughout your life.
Improve your well-being and performance using your iPhone or iPadHow it works
The new Inner Balance App and Sensor is an innovative and fun way to improve performance and well-being through real time, precision feedback and training. Inner Balance shows your heart-rhythm pattern (HRV), as a breathing pacer with built-in coach guides you into a more aligned inner state. The Inner Balance App works exclusively with the, one-of-a-kind, HeartMath iOS Sensor that attaches to your iPhone, or iPad and your earlobe. The iOS Sensor feeds your heart rhythms into the app
Once you have downloaded the Inner Balance App, just plug in the iOS Lightning Sensor and you are ready to begin. Inner Balance incorporates an advanced heart-rate monitor, that measures even subtle changes in your heart rhythms. This type of measurement is known as heart-rate variability analysis, or HRV. HRV analysis is a noninvasive measurement that reflects heart-brain interaction and autonomic nervous system dynamics, which are particularly sensitive to changes in your emotional state.
Typical Benefits People Notice With 2 Weeks of Genuine Practice:
Heart Rhythms and Coherence
- Increased mental clarity
- More alertness
- Better focus and decision making
- Less friction in relationships
- Less worry
- Better sleep
- More positive attitudes
- Increased composure and calm
When you experience stressful emotions such as frustration, anxiety, irritation and anger, your heart-rhythm pattern becomes irregular and incoherent, negatively affecting your health, brain function, performance and sense of well-being. When you experience positive emotions such as appreciation, dignity, joy and love, your heart-rhythm pattern is more ordered and coherent.
These graphs contrast the quality of a heart-rhythm pattern when stressed to one when feeling a positive emotion.
Ordered and balanced heart rhythms are an indicator of your “coherence level.” High coherence is a state associated with positive emotional attitudes, which send signals to the brain that reduce reactions to stress and improve cognitive function, hormonal balance, immune response, coordination and reaction times, and your overall sense of well-being.
