If you are trying to take your game to another level, PPT may be for you. Studies have shown that stress can interfere with the body’s ability to relax, the mind’s ability to make good decisions, and one’s ability to manage his/her emotions. Whether you are making a shot, performing on stage, having difficulty focusing on a task, taking a test, making an executive decision or trying to lower your blood pressure, getting into the zone is beneficial.

GETTING INTO THE ZONE. The zone is playing without thinking. When one is in the zone there is complete mind/body synchrony. The zone is the state of consciousness where your higher motor faculties and intuition merge in liquid coordination. PPT APPLICATIONS *Sports/Entertainment *Business/Education *Health/Social Skills.

In general emotional stress creates erratic heart rhythm patterns, that in turn affects the body’s ability to function properly. Heart rate variability (HRV) coherence training systems have been used effectively to improve performance anxiety in the areas such as, but not limited to Sports/Entertainment Business , Health, and Education. Moving from chaos to coherence by learning to control HRV in real time, with the use of cutting edge technology is the goal of HeartMath strategies.
