How I use the HeartMath System
HeartMath information and tools are always part of my presentations in workshops and I include some of the techniques when I'm teaching people about different breathing and positive emotion generating approaches. Jeff Goelitz made available the program for adolescents as it was being rolled out. I used that in conjunction with mindful techniques, tapping, and growth mindset oriented approaches in an afterschool program that I delivered to middle schoolers.
