We’re digging into the research on how to manage stress with heart rate variability.

We all know that stress matters when we are TTC.

But how do we quickly identify and address the stressors in our lives?

Right now, you may be meditating, visualizing, practicing breathwork, doing yoga, progressive muscle relaxation, acupuncture and more to reduce stress.

And while we like all of those modalities, and we can use them to move us from the sympathetic (fight or flight) to the parasympathetic (rest and digest), many of these techniques may not be truly effective.

You can meditate and still experience an incoherent heart rate because you may be dealing with frustration, impatience, anger, and sadness that keeps you stuck in a pattern that drives cortisol production.

That’s why we love this simple technique that uses heart-focused breathing that moves us from stressed to calm in only a few minutes. And when done consistently, we can see improvements in energy, sleep, focus, calmness, anxiety and depression.

Today I’m excited to welcome Sheva Carr to the podcast. Sheva is the Founding CEO of Fyera! / Heart Ambassadors, the Fyera Foundation, and a Co-Director of HeartMath Healthcare and HeartMath’s Heart Mastery program.


In this episode, you’ll learn:

1) Why heart rate variability is crucial for hormonal balance

2) How to move from a stress response to a relaxation response using a simple yet powerful technique

3) What research tells us about this technique and why it is so effective for overall health (i.e. 25 years of research and over 400 peer-reviewed studies)

4) How we can move from impatience to trusting our intuition that everything is working for us
