Military Family

HeartMath training and technology have been proven to improve cognitive functions and reduce symptoms of operational stress such as sleep disturbance, fatigue and overreactivity.

Military families have unique challenges and concerns that can arise because of a family member’s service. The absence and the return of a spouse, parent, son or daughter, can place tremendous stress, emotional pressure and other strains, including financial, on the rest of the family. To help bring more balance and ease into their lives, HeartMath provides the following resources and invites you to share them with family or friends in the military or support IHM’s non-profit efforts to provide these resources to more servicemen and women and their families.

H.E.A.R.T. DVD: The HeartMath Education and Resilience Training (H.E.A.R.T.) DVD and booklet are available at no cost to all military service members, veterans and families. The 3 hour DVD describes practical tools to increase personal resilience and mental focus and improve performance and decision-making. If you are interested in receiving a free H.E.A.R.T. DVD for a military service member, veteran or spouse, fill out and submit this form.


Note: All resources for military service members, veterans, and their families in this article are free, including the H.E.A.R.T. DVD. The Resilience and the Emotional Landscape e-Booklet, which is provided for free, is for anyone that would like it. HeartMath is providing these free resources as a community service to help others out.
