Why Should You Consider HeartMath To Lower Stress And Anxiety?

Heartmath helps with anxiety and stress

Why anxiety on the rise?

HeartMath understands that the burden of stress and anxiety has only increased over the years. Statistics Canada states that 23% of individuals above the age of 15 have to deal with severe or extreme stress. The percentage rises to 30% for people between 35-54 years of age. With such numbers increasing every year, it’s safe to say that yes, anxiety is a big deal.

Our society is the main issue. With the increase in social media, people tend to isolate themselves more than ever and many people are looking for gratification through that medium. Life expense has increased while most people have a hard time to meet both ends. Then, comes the expectation to be more productive at work and in our personal life.

There is so much distraction around us that people have a hard time to focus. What happened to relationships? Many couples would prefer to move on and separate instead of trying to figure out a solution to the problem. It is easier but behind the scene, a lot of people become anxious. Nobody talks about it. It is taboo to talk about anxiety or even depression. However, it affects so many of us!

So, what exactly is anxiety?

Anxiety is a mental condition that makes use of a range of emotions. Each mental response has its roots in a certain kind of fear. This could be unease, stress, concern, dread or hopelessness. These situations can be real or imaginary.
