Measuring Workplace Stress – In A New Way

Researchers studying the effects of stress on employees undertook a new approach in their research to improve upon what they said may be outdated and obsolete tools for evaluating workplace stress. As a result, they said, some of their findings were "astonishing."

The researchers, Adrian Low of the Hong Kong Association of Psychology, and study advisor HeartMath Institute Director of Research Dr. Rollin McCraty, used HeartMath’s emWave® Pro Plus as a quantitative assessment tool for the study.

Helping Children Reduce Anxiety in School and at Home

Join Jessica Minahan MEd, BCBA, and host Jeffrey Goelitz, HMI’s Director of Education, for a free webinar Helping Children Reduce Anxiety in School and at Home on August 3, 2019.

Anxiety is the leading mental health issue among today’s youth, and it is rising. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that one in three thirteen-eighteen-year-olds has already experienced a major anxiety disorder. Without intervention, these children are at risk for poor performance, diminished learning, and social/behavior problems in school. Understanding the role anxiety plays in a student’s behavior is a crucial first step. Then clear prevention strategies follow. A successful intervention avoids the old-fashioned reward and punishment-based system from traditional behavior plans and instead focuses on the use of preventive strategies including explicit instruction on coping skills, self-monitoring, and alternative responses.

Raise Your Vibration With Appreciation and Compassion

Practicing genuine appreciation and compassion raises our heart’s vibrations.

“When our vibrations are up … we respond to stressful situations with soundness, resilience and clearer discernment. We are less vulnerable to frustration, impatience, anger, anxiety, and we feel more self-secure and less critical of others and of ourselves. We are drawn to notice nature, flowers and trees that we usually sleep-walk past, as our preoccupations rob us of this gift of conscious connection.”

Study Uses Paced Deep Breathing to Measure Dutch Workers’ HRV

The researchers who conducted a recently published study using a short breathing protocol to measure heart rate variability (HRV) in a large group of Dutch workers say it’s the first of its kind.

"This is the first study," the researchers explained, "to explore a 1-minute paced deep-breathing HRV protocol as an objective screening measure for multiple future health issues in a working population."

A Holiday Message from Doc Childre

The holidays can magnify our care, kindness and connection…yet they can also magnify separating energies like blame, chaos and emotional instability. To consciously rise above and reduce these downspiraling tendencies, practice having genuine compassionate care for each other’s views and concerns. Make heart-firm commitments to add compassion, kindness, patience and latitude as you interact with others and with yourself. Realize that we are all doing the best we can, even if it’s not always the best of who we are in that moment.

Study Finds a Little Quick Coherence Good for College Students

Editor’s note“Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation. It is a state that builds resiliency – personal energy is accumulated, not wasted, – leaving more energy to manifest intentions and harmonious outcomes.”

Dr. Rollin McCraty, HeartMath Institute

Know someone about to begin or continue college this fall? Naturally, you’ll want to offer encouragement and helpful advice for coping and succeeding in what is sure to be one of the more stressful ventures of his or her life. Think coherence. Even better, think quick coherence:

A newly published study assessing the efficacy of HeartMath’s Quick Coherence Technique® (QCT) found significant improvements in a group of students’ heart-coherence levels, as measured by heart rate variability (HRV). Study participants were undergraduates at the Universiti Putra Maylasia, in Pahang, Malaysia.

How A Pause Can Save The Day

How A Pause Can Save The Day

From time to time, we all need to take pause, a brief stillness, a moment to review "our initial reaction so we can move to the place where a calm, thoughtful response is born." L.R. Knost

Through hindsight, we often realize how much stress we could have prevented by pausing to reconsider our choices before taking action. Many of us have learned this lesson many times over: for example, sometimes our heart nudges us to take a pause before releasing an angered response to an e-mail and we don’t listen. We mechanically press send and often second-guess ourselves the minute we click the mouse.

Study Shows Geomagnetic Fields and Solar Activity Affect Human Autonomic Nervous System Functions

Did you know geomagnetic and solar activity can affect your autonomic nervous system (ANS), which controls your breathing, heartbeat and digestive processes? It’s true: A recently published long-term study whose researchers included HeartMath Institute’s Rollin McCraty and Mike Atkinson, reached that conclusion.

"These findings," the study states, "support the hypothesis that these energetic environmental factors act as energy sources that outplay in different ways depending on an individual’s health status and maturity level and capacity of self-regulation."
