Stress - It's the quintessential buzzword of modern life. It hangs on everyone's lips from the first miles of the morning commute until the screeching alarm clock starts yet another day. Countless articles and studies tell the same story: lives controlled by unmanaged stress end early and none too well.
This book describes a simple, straightforward method readers can learn and practice to literally transform stress by shifting the heart's own rhythms.
At the core of the HeartMath method of emotional regulation is the idea that, by focusing on positive feelings such as appreciation, care, or compassion, anyone can create dramatic changes in his or her heart rhythms. These changes precipitate a series of neural, hormonal, and biochemical events that dissipate stress and anger and lead to greater well-being. The benefits from using this system are remarkable and far-reaching: blood pressure drops, stress hormone levels fall, immune system activity increases, and anti-aging hormone levels rise.
Through its interactive learning system, this book teaches readers to use the HeartMath method, enabling them to see and experience in real time how thoughts and emotions affect their heart rhythms. It teaches them how to engage their hearts to bring emotion, body, and mind into balance, and helps them stay in a zone of focused clarity, optimal health, and high performance. Changes brought about through this method are fast acting and long-lasting-the perfect antidote to our chaotic and fast-paced lives.

If you are dealing with anger you can't quite seem to manage, this book can give you hope, as well as practical tools to successfully handle this emotion. You'll learn that the heart provides a unique access point from which anyone can regulate many of their reaction patterns. The heart is so powerful - generating sixty times the electrical amplitude of the brain - that it can draw your brain, nervous system, and emotions into its coherent rhythms and unlock more of your own innate intelligence.
The purpose of this book is to help you:
Adults with a long history of anger, children who are easily frustrated, teenagers with shifting emotional moods and raging hormones - all have used the power of the heart to change their feelings and their perceptions right in the middle of an angry reaction.
Managing your anger with the HeartMath techniques doesn't mean leaving yourself open to getting walked on. You don't become naive or cave in to others demands. You become clear and centred, and see what's best for you and others. You start to see life not in an overly idealistic way but in a realistic and hopeful way.

Anxiety has become rampant in today's fast-paced society. Why this is occurring and what individuals can do to overcome fear and worry and create more serenity, especially during uncertain times, is the important subject matter of this book.
Most people have some anxiety about themselves, their family, and their future. Anxiety about the world's problems - climate changes, terrorism, diseases - is also on the rise. But increasingly, people experience unremitting anxiety that can turn into an anxiety disorder. Why this is occurring and what individuals can do to overcome fear and worry and create more serenity, especially during uncertain times, is the important subject matter of this book.
The HeartMath solution for addressing anxiety differs in important ways from the usual interventions for anxiety. The HeartMath solution is based on new research on how the heart and brain communicate and how people can harness the power of their physiology to regulate their own emotions to expand intuitive perception. As people achieve their own intuitive heart understanding, anxiety begins to release and is replaced by increasing peace and serenity.
From the Publisher: Written by the leaders of the renowned HeartMath Institute, this book offers scientifically proven techniques that alter the body's physical response to anxiety, and shows readers how to attain a peaceful, positive state of being.
Could your life be any crazier and more overwhelming? You're bombarded all day, every day by deadlines, demands, and news, much of it bad, from across the street and around the world. After awhile, this constant sense of being overwhelmed, fatigued, and stretched to the limit can leave you feeling hopeless and uninterested in things that you used to enjoy. In other words, you have become depressed.
By using the HeartMath techniques in this book, you'll learn how to tap into new resources of energy and creativity and find new ways to connect with the people in your life. In no time, your feelings of depression will lessen and dramatic changes will take place in your mind and body that will result in better health and greater peace of mind..
"This book shows how specific practices of mindfulness and emotional mastery can help anyone regain control of their physiology, and therefore their mind. This is an important help in the treatment of depression."
David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PH.D., clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburg and author of Healing Without Freud or Prozac and The Instinct to Heal.
High blood pressure is a national epidemic. It's a condition that affects one in four Americans, most of whom have no idea they are at higher risk for heart disease, stroke, and other life threatening problems. Conventional treatments for hypertension involve drugs, and these can have considerable side effects and may not ultimately succeed in getting those numbers down. Fortunately, the Institute of HeartMath has researched techniques for managing stress and hypertension for more than fifteen years. Now, at last, these highly effective strategies for regulating blood pressure safely and effectively are available to you.
The HeartMath Program described in Dr. Bruce Wilson and Doc Childre's new book offers a unique opportunity in the arena of stress management. Recognizing a stressful situation and taking a quick timeout to begin a simple HeartMath technique to shift your emotional attitude has a profound effect on the nervous system. It changes your physiology from a "fight-or-flight" stimulated state to one of calm and clarity. The simple end result is a decrease in stress hormone production with a resultant decrease in blood pressure and heart rate.

Success is Just a conversation™.
Whether it is; with our children, business colleagues, clients, friends, or even ourselves - the conversations we choose to have are fundamental to our success in life. Just a conversation™ is changing peoples attitudes and behaviours to the conversations they choose to have in order to improve performance.... in sales, leadership, or the relationships (both personal and commercial) that we enjoy.
