Did you know there is an actual connection between our Heart and our Brain? Research by Judith E. Glaser supports just that idea. She actually goes as far as to called the Heart part of our "6 Brains" - The Heart Brain.
Research shows that when a puppy and a child come together in a room their heartbeats begin to sync up and they become connected on a deeper level. The same thing happens in our everyday conversations. When we come into contact with someone stressed, frustrated or anxious, our heart connected to that raised heart rate and without proper tools, we are likely to take on that increase in heart rate. Additionally, when we connect with someone with a calm presence, we often take on that relaxed heart rate.
In looking at the Heart as a part of the brain, we start to see the impact that our heart's connection has on our chemistry.
