First, bring your focus to your heart and breathe in and out as if you are breathing through your heart. Then think about something you feel grateful for.
After a few moments, when you feel relaxed, then do a round of EFT. You can do the heart focusing exercise after the EFT if you want. This brings the heart into a state of coherence, which reduces stress and enhances intuition. It will help you to have better focus, more energy, and improved mental clarity for any issue you are working on.
The HeartMath® System introduces you to a powerful tool to help you increase physiologi-cal coherence. Use the Quick Coherence® Technique in your daily life to reduce the ef-fects of stress and the emWave® technology to enhance your coherence practice.

The Steps Step 1 – Heart Focus
Focus your attention to the area around your heart.
Step 2 – Heart Breathing
Breathe deeply but normally and feel as if your breath is coming in and going out through your heart area.
Step 3 – Heart Feeling
Activate a positive feeling such as appreciation or care, perhaps recall a fun time when you felt good inside, and try to reexperience it. Once you have completed the steps, you can ask yourself, “How could I handle this in a better way?” With practice, you’ll find you have more intuitive choices or options for what you can do next – even in the middle of a challenging or high-pressure situation.
