Building Personal Resilience Program

The Building Personal Resilience program empowers individuals to self-regulate their emotions and behaviors to reduce stress, increase resilience, and unlock their natural intuitive guidance for making more effective choices. This enables people to break through to greater levels of personal balance, creativity, insight and health.

When we’re stressed, we feel poorly, and our brain function and creative thinking become impaired. We might overlook or forget important details, overreact to small stuff, say things we regret, get overwhelmed, have trouble sleeping or feel exhausted and drained. But it doesn’t have to be this way!

Building Personal Resilience improves your ability to bounce back, reduce stress, increase your energy, and master new skills to better handle the day-to-day challenges and stressors for overall well-being. 


  • Resilience, vitality and overall well-being.
  • Mental clarity for decision-making, problem-solving and planning.
  • Emotional awareness and sensitivity to relationship issues.

Ability to communicate more effectively.

Cooperation among co-workers and team members.

  • Ability to maintain or reestablish composure in challenging situations.


  • Worry, overwhelm and feelings of anxiousness.

  • Sleeplessness and fatigue.

  • Generalized stress and physical symptoms of stress.

  • Miscommunications

Studies conducted with over 11,500* people have shown improvements in mental & emotional well-being in just 6-9 weeks using HeartMath training and techniques. * N= 11,903


True self-care is important for maintaining balance and well-being. More people are now recognizing that self-care is not a luxury — rather it is a necessity.

Building Personal Resilience with a mindset of well-being starts with renewing thoughts and feelings that uplift the heart to offset the stress accumulated from repetitive thought patterns and feelings that drain our energy and strain our ability to reason and make comfortable choices.

You will realize that you have the power to choose what you think, feel and how to respond to situations that are preventing you from achieving your desires for a better life.


HeartMath techniques provide powerful stress-reduction benefits. Learning to prevent and reduce the stress from today’s speed of change and uncertainty, while maintaining emotional balance and poise, is moving to the top of the list of self-care necessities. Optimizing our mental and emotional energy expenditures is often an overlooked aspect. By learning how to plug emotional energy drains, we renew our resilience and self-security as we move through daily challenges and experiences.

Access the Personal Well-Being Survey. This survey is a scientifically developed assessment giving you a snap shot of your current level of well-being. It provides critical information you can use to build and maintain resilience and optimal health. 


Practical Intuition is more than "Just a Hunch". More recently, scientists are recognizing it as a skill that anyone can develop. Most of us have had some experience with what we call a hunch, a heart feeling, gut feeling or just a sense of “inner knowing” in making decisions in business, or having a strong sense about something with our children or someone we care about, or even in everyday activities like an inner prompting to drive defensively.

Research reveals that the heart receives intuitive information before the brain, according to published research conducted by the HeartMath Institute. As we slow down our minds and attune to our deeper heart feelings, our natural intuitive connection begins to flow.


Bring your physical, mental, and emotional systems into balance and alignment with your heart’s intuitive guidance. This unfolds the path for becoming heart-empowered for your well-being.

As you learn to integrate the Building Personal Resilience skills into your daily life, you will become better at handling the day-to-day challenges and stressors that often leave you depleted. Using these skills has been shown to provide a wide range of long-term benefits, including:

  • Explore an expanded understanding of resilience

  • Discover an important physiological state called ‘heart-coherence’ which underlies resilience
