ARE YOU STRESSED OUT?
The statistics on mounting stress and its detrimental effects on body, mind, emotions, and health shout at us. In 1991, the American Institute of Stress noted that 75-90% of visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related complaints. In 2002, Americans purchased nearly $17.2 billion worth of anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs.
These are very old statistics that are likely even higher today. The bottom line is that stress has become pervasive. Stress is at the root of so many personal, family, health and workplace problems. Sustained stress leads to exhaustion and breakdown in performance. It affects our sleep, our mood, and robs us of joy and peace. Stress can also lead to poor nutrition and lifestyle choices.

EXPERIENCE CALM, FOCUS & WELL-BEING
HeartMath® is a stress-reduction system which gives people the ability to meet life's many challenges with resiliency and poise. The HeartMath system has been proven to lower blood pressure, facilitate brain function, improve nervous system and hormonal balance.
HeartMath tools easily teach you how to reduce the activity of the sympathetic nervous system (that branch of the system that speeds heart rate, constricts blood vessels, and stimulates the chronic release of hormones such as cortisol) and increases the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system (the branch that slows heart rate, relaxes the body's inner systems and releases production of DHEA, the vitality and anti-aging hormone).
We will always continue to face stressful situations, but wouldn't you like to have the tools to help you navigate those moments? HeartMath is helpful for competitive athletes, students studying for exams, military personnel, educators, first responders/EMS, busy professionals, and overwhelmed parents. HeartMath can even be taught to young children!
