015: Dr. Deborah Rozman Ph.D, President of Heartmath, How daily Heart Rate Coherence / HRV training can change your life & sleep!

Listen to "The Sleep Is a Skill" podcast on these platforms

Episode Summary

💙Heartmath (or as I like to call it, a lie detector for your heart rhythm / HRV!) has been around for over 25 years and stands on a mountain of scientific research conducted at the HeartMath Institute on the psychophysiology of stress, emotions, and the interactions between the heart and brain. There are over 300 peer-reviewed or independent studies utilizing HeartMath techniques or technologies to achieve beneficial outcomes that have been published. Continued training to learn how to reliably bring your heart into a state of coherence, has been shown to result in improved sleep for many who use it.

I personally have found Heartmath to reliably sift out if I’m truly engaged in the training… or actually stressed out, distracted, or disengaged...and provide me with the real-time feedback to get myself back in the game. The color-coding system and end-of-training breakdown score speak to my own inner competitor nature. Additionally, I’ve found it to be a great tool to share with clients who are having difficulty with anxiety or depression to remind them that they really do have a say over their emotional state. It is also great for accountability since an easy screenshot on your smartphone will tell a compelling story of your emotional state in that session.


Deborah Rozman is a behavioral psychologist with 30 years of experience in wellness, performance, and behavioral change. For nearly two decades, she has helped to develop and oversee HeartMath training programs. The programs are designed to facilitate individuals in creating a deeper heart connection in ways that can empower them to reduce stress, build their resilience, and create a more heart-connected world at home, work, or with clients and patients.

Deborah is the President of HeartMath (www.heartmath.com) and the co-author along with HeartMath founder, Doc Childre, for Transforming book series, published by New Harbinger.  The five-title series includes, Transforming Stress: Transforming Anger, Transforming Stress, Transforming Anxiety, and Transforming Depression.

Passionate about exploring the heart’s intelligence, Deborah is committed to helping educate more people about the role that the heart plays in wellness, increasing performance, and in our personal fulfillment.
