HeartMath is one of a number of companies with apps and devices that use biofeedback technology to relieve stress and anxiety, and help support mindfulness.
What is biofeedback?
A good definition is provided by Wikipedia:
“Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions primarily using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will.
“Some of the processes that can be controlled include brainwaves, muscle tone, skin conductance, heart rate…
“Biofeedback may be used to improve health, performance, and the physiological changes that often occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts, emotions, and behavior.”

An article on the HeartMath site notes:
“Stress comes from our perception and emotional reactions to an event or idea.
“It can be any feeling of anxiety, irritation, frustration, or hopelessness, etc.
“Stress is not only created by a response to an external situation or event. A lot of daily stress is created by ongoing attitudes, that is, recurring feelings of agitation, worry, anxiety, anger, judgments, resentment, insecurities and self-doubt.
“These emotions are known to drain emotional energy while engaging in everyday life.”
