Wednesday, 2/14, 11:00 am - 11:45 am: Emotions and Your Heart
Here's an interesting fact: in the very earliest experiments in anatomy, the vast majority of nerves seemed to lead to the heart. Because of this, the heart was thought of as the seat of emotions. It is now known that the amygdala in the brain helps with emotional processing. When the amygdala is overstimulated by negative events and thoughts, the response is literally heartfelt - that is, negative emotions cause your heart to beat faster, increasing your blood pressure and your breathing rate. In this webinar, learn how reframing negative emotions can calm both your amygdala and heart!
