Shift and Shine for the Young at Heart

The qualities of joy, caring, appreciation and openheartedness, which most children so naturally possess, have the power to transform our lives. So whether you are 6 or 60, the Shift and Shine® Technique can help you or children sustain these cherished and admired qualities.

HeartMath’s Shift and Shine™ Technique is a fun and effective tool developed especially for ages 3-6 that has proven beneficial in giving children an early start on how to manage their emotions and engage in socially accepted behavior, while also strengthening positive feelings such as love, caring and appreciation. Like adults, children, even our youngest, experience stress, and this tool can help lessen it by teaching them skills they can carry throughout their lives.

Parents/guardians, grandparents and teachers will find this technique easy to teach and enjoyable for children and themselves. It takes only a few minutes, so you and your children can practice it daily.

Emotions give meaning to our lives.  The power of emotion can enrich our lives beyond measure – meaning, color, texture.  Understanding the power of your emotions is vital for having a fulfilling, healthy life.  Click to receive this Free e-booklet, The Power of Emotion.
