Coherence and Feeling States

Study Looks at Coherence and Feeling States

Researchers at HeartMath Institute and elsewhere have undertaken numerous studies through the years that have demonstrated the ability of HeartMath® tools and technology to help people increase psychophysiological coherence. A recent one was a small study at a South African university in which people attempted to increase their positive feeling states and decrease their negative feeling states.

The Yoga of Self Care

I've been a meditator and had a yoga practice of one kind or another over many years. I've had periods when I've not sat or taken advantage of the benefits of yoga and meditation and every time I come back to my practice I wonder why I stepped away because each time I come back my practice is deeper and richer and I remember how much it helps me.

One of my favorite forms of yoga is a practice called Restorative Yoga which involves slow passive movements that I've find very helpful in managing stress and fatigue.

One of my favorite books in this area is Relax and Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times - By Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T.

I have it on my Kindle for iPad® and love it.

This link will take you to a nice read on Restorative Yoga.  Enjoy.
