HeartMath for Education
PRACTICAL SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL
HeartMath programs and technologies help students learn and develop greater social and emotional awareness and self-regulation skills. These critical skills build a solid foundation for improved mental and emotional health, positive social behaviour and relationships and academic excellence, all of which are essential for success and well-being in today’s fast-paced, complex world.
Benefits of Our Educational Programs
Students who participate in HeartMath programs and use its technologies show significant improvements in impulse control, readiness, academic focus, decision-making and in getting along better with teachers, peers and parents.
The HeartMath Institute has dedicated nearly 30 years of scientific research into the study of the physiology of learning, emotions and performance. Over a dozen education-related studies, most published in peer-reviewed journals, have shown statistically-significant outcomes with a variety of student populations.
Staying Cool Under Pressure in School
Many schools are adopting stress management practices in their classes to help students cope with exam pressure, peer and parent pressure, and communication challenges in general! It is very beneficial for teachers to be aware of what stress is and what it isn’t. If a school decides that Heartmath stress management programme would be useful for their students the first step should be training the teachers.
