Wellness/Sustainability Healthcare

Senior Leadership endorsed HeartMath as a wellness initiative – to address and transform the chronic stress employees were experiencing at work and in their lives.


After several weeks of practicing HeartMath tools and techniques, employees tell this story:

My life is deeply fulfilling 13% increase
I am peaceful 16% increase
I am fatigued 27% decrease
I am worried 21% decrease
Experience body aches 18% decrease

Does HeartMath sustain or is it short-lived?

For employees who participated in a HeartMath training within the last 5 years:

  • 72% reported using the techniques at work.
  • 67% reported using the techniques at home.
  • The bottom-line: 3 out of 4 continue to use HeartMath techniques months and years later.

Comments:

Our LiveWell team trained over 1,000 employees. We celebrate the dramatic improvements in our staff’s quality of life. They feel less fatigued, less worried, have fewer body aches and pains, are more at peace and describe their lives as more fulfilling. All HeartMath participants earn 150 LiveWell Points.

Delays in GI lab schedule – had to go tell room full of families in waiting room about the 1.5 hour delay. I used Quick Coherence Technique, calmed down, spoke clearly and was relaxed. Families took it well and I walked away thinking: that went well…
