Item # 6030_ST
Helping Students Practice and Sustain Self-Regulation
HeartMath’s emWave® technology helps students quickly learn how to self-regulate attitudes and emotions and bring balance to their mental and emotional systems. This balanced state leads to positive behavior, improved academic performance and greater ease in social settings.
The emWave helps students reduce learning and performance blocks such as test anxiety, poor memory recall, low motivation and behavioral issues caused by peer pressure, anxiety and overstimulation such as from today’s media devices. The emWave has proven to benefit students in both the classroom and home.
Students Enjoy Experiencing the Shift in Attitudes and Behaviors
The easy-to-use software program with a real-time heart-rhythm monitor is based on current research that shows heart-rhythm patterns are influenced by our emotions. Notice the distinct difference in the patterns in the charts below.
Attitudes and emotions such as anger, reactivity caused by stress or emotional upset and discouragement produce an irregular pattern (displayed as red in the chart above). As the student is able to shift his attitude to one of appreciation, empathy, tolerance or engagement, his self-regulated state creates a smooth pattern (displayed in blue)
