During American Heart Month, we want to highlight the great work at the HeartMath Institute where the team offers evidence-based and quick methods for improving heart-brain coherence. Heart-focused breathing has been found to short circuit our sympathetic nervous system response to threat and results in clearer thinking; feelings of peace and ease; and improved results.
According to the CDC, “February is American Heart Month, a time when all people can focus on their cardiovascular health. The Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention is shining a light on hypertension (high blood pressure), a leading risk factor for heart disease and stroke.”
