STRESS is a condition of feeling, experienced emotionally, mentally and/or physically, when a person perceives that demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize.
RESILIENCE is the capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, challenge and adversity.

Strengthening resilience has become a critically important strategy for improving personal and organizational efficacy, productivity, mindfulness, health and well being.

Build Resilience founder, Meg Hogan, teaches simple, highly effective, evidence-based techniques that can be used any where, anytime, to calm reactive emotions and neutralize stress in the moment.

Supporting mental and emotional self-regulation, Meg helps to identify sources of stress and energy drain.

"My biggest challenge before learning about HeartMath was the ability to let things go – negative feelings I tend to drag throughout the day, or maybe even the week. Holding onto negative feelings made me angry, like I was a bubble about to burst. At first, HeartMath Resilience training was hard for me to understand. I thought how can this really help me? My doubt quickly changed as soon as I felt that first sense of ease. The Quick Coherence technique truly changed my feeling of upset – it was instantly gone. I ended up loving this training."
