When we experience negative emotions, our heart rhythm patterns becomes erratic, and the emotional center of the brain, when it receives these patterns, recognizes them as stressful. In response, the brain sends out an SOS signal to the rest of the body – stress hormone levels increase, blood vessels constrict, blood pressure rises, and the immune system weakens. If the body experiences prolonged stress, heart disease and other stress-induced illnesses are a likely possibility. How then, can we stop the brain from responding to stress the same way? Heart Math has shown that consciously recreating a feeling of gratitude will harmonize heart rhythms, reduce emotional stress, and improve overall health.
