HeartMath Resilience Programs for the Military

HeartMath resilience training programs incorporate research-based self-regulation techniques and technologies that reduce symptoms of operational stress and promote sustained resilience. Benefits also include improved mental and physical performance, focus and enhanced decision-making in adverse environments, heightened situational awareness and reduction in the physical, mental and emotional symptoms of operational stress.

The techniques HeartMath teaches are intentionally designed to be simple, easy-to-use and adaptable to virtually any culture, setting or age group, regardless of religious belief or background.

The Resilience Advantage™—Building Stress Resilience and Optimizing Performance

The Resilience Advantage training helps service members build character, strength and resilience. As military personnel learn to “take charge” of and self-regulate their mental, emotional and physical energy, they are better able to handle stress reactions and develop more intelligent approaches to self-managing and renewing energy. As people increase their energy reserves, they can more easily prepare for stressful events and establish a cushion that prepares and protects them from the damaging effects of many common stressors. This enables them to perform at their best and sustain greater balance and operational readiness for deployment and day-to-day challenges.

Practicing the self-regulation and resilience-building techniques helps service members:

  • Sharpen and maintain situational awareness.
  • Increase mental clarity and flexible and focused thinking, especially under pressure.
  • Improve reaction times and coordination.
  • Reduce fatigue and sleeplessness.
  • Reduce symptoms of operational stress.
  • Strengthen connection to the mission, unit and team.
  • Decrease friction in relationships and improve communication with unit and family members.
  •  

    Resilience Advantage training programs can be tailored to suit tactical training windows. Introductory content can be delivered in two- or four-hour workshops. More thorough training can be delivered over one, two or three days. Programs can be delivered by HeartMath or certified military trainers.
