The Cares of the World – How to Transform Your Overcare into Balanced Care
The world needs our care now more than ever, and these days there is so much to care for – a pet, work, or our family, health and the planet. But, how do we deeply care without depleting our energy? What does it really mean to have balanced care? What happens when that care turns to overcare – when we excessively worry, over-identify or have anxiety about the object of our care? Overcare is easy to fall into because of its stealthy way of making us feel that we are caring more when worry is added. This is not the case.
Study Validates Effectiveness of Heart Lock-In Technique
The Heart Lock-In® Technique, one of HeartMath’s earliest tools, has helped individuals and groups increase heart-rhythm coherence for many years. Now a study* has validated the tool’s effect on synchronization between the heart and geomagnetic activity, which is significant because this synchronization is associated with better health.
Lifting Global Consciousness:Expanding Our Capacity to Love Webinar
Join Deborah Rozman Ph.D. for a free webinar Lifting Global Consciousness: Expanding Our Capacity to Love on September 28, 2019.
Many people are wondering what it will really take to shift the consciousness of humanity. I feel that love is the action word for raising the vibration of our awareness and achieving the next level of consciousness.
Increasingly people are experiencing the enhanced benefits of coming together with like intention to raise individual and collective conscious. Each year, HeartMath Institute sponsors a gathering of such people and provides research-based methods for lifting each other and our planet.
“As more of humanity practices heart-based living, it will qualify the ‘rite’ of passage into the next level of consciousness. Using our heart’s intuitive guidance, will become common sense — practical intelligence.”
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the effects of stress on employees undertook a new approach in their research to improve upon what they said may be outdated and obsolete tools for evaluating workplace stress.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."
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."
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.
