Now, this is a very cool app. Now you can use your iPad or iPhone to access HeartMath’s technology.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with HeartMath, it’s a company dedicated to bringing health and mental clarity to adults and children through regulation of their hearts.
HeartMath’s research is grounded in hard science. Over the past 20 years their studies have shown how heart rate variability makes a difference. Say that your pulse is 60 beats per minute. Those beats are not even, like a metronome with beats precisely 1 second apart. As a matter of fact, people whose hearts beat with that kind of regularity are probably recovering from a stroke. Your heart rate is meant to vary, but in coherent, not chaotic rhythms. Chaotic rhythms indicate anger or some other upset.
But when hearts vary in a regular rhythm – slow…a little faster…fast…a little slower… slow… a little faster, etc. – you get massive health benefits. Your cortisol decreases, while DHEA increases. This benefits for your immune and cardiovascular systems tremendously.
You Don’t Have to Be a Yogi to Regulate Your Heart
I’ve used HeartMath biofeedback with my executive coaching clients for over a decade. In the early days, I had to hook them up to a computer program. With this new app, anyone can get his or her own feedback through their iPad or iPhone. People unfamiliar with meditation find they can regulate their hearts and enjoy the benefits with minimal training. It’s amazing.
