The Institute of HeartMath has been doing some fascinating research on the impact of the heart on the brain and how it influences how we feel. Along the way, they developed a simple, fast practice you can use to reduce your stress called the Quick Coherence technique.
This article on Huffington Post takes a look at the Quick Coherence technique, explores the science behind it, and outlines the simple three-step process. You can read the article for the science part (it’s pretty interesting), but here’s a nutshell of the process:
- Heart Focus: Focus your attention in the area of your heart, in the center of your chest.
- Heart Breathing: As you focus on the area of your heart, imagine your breath flowing in and out through that area.
- Heart Feeling: As you continue to breathe through the area of your heart, recall a positive feeling, a time when you felt good inside, and try to re-experience it. It could be feeling appreciation for the good things in your life, or the love and care you feel for someone.
If you’d like someone to take you through the process, here’s a video.
It’s a simple process, and easy to apply any time, anywhere.
