It is not the events or situations that do the harm but the way you respond to them. How you feel about them relates to how stressed you become. Emotions or feelings have a powerful impact on the human body. Positive feelings such as appreciation, care and love not only feel good but are good for you. They help your body systems to synchronize and work better like a well-tuned car.
HeartMath’s research has shown that when you intentionally shift to a positive emotion, heart rhythms immediately change. The shift in heart rhythms benefit the entire body. The results are immediate and long lasting.
How does it work?
Negative emotions like anger, frustration, anxiety and worry – lead to increased disorder in the heart rhythms and the nervous system. However, positive emotions such as joy , appreciation, care and kindness can create harmony in the hearts rhythm and the nervous system which scientists call coherence. Coherence leads to more mental clarity, creativity and better problem solving abilities. It becomes easier to find solutions and better ways of handling stressful situations.
How can I create coherence?
