HeartCoaches Introduces Brain-Based Strategies for a Healthy Heart
Date:4/16/2010

HeartCoaches, which provides evidence-based behavior-change coaching individually tailored for people with heart disease or associated risk factors, today introduced 'How Your Brain Can Save Your Heart (And Your Life)'. This innovative 5-week teleclass presents 4 brain-based strategies which research has shown to be critical for making permanent lifestyle changes that increase our prospects for a healthier heart and longer life.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 16, 2010 -- A recent study showed that when doctors tell their at-risk heart patients that they will die soon if they don't change their lifestyle habits--diet, exercise, smoking, stress--only one in seven were able to do it. Why aren't more people able to make these important lifestyle changes, even when their life depends on it? How many more people attempt to start heart-healthy lifestyles habits BEFORE they develop heart disease, only to find themselves exhausted, discouraged and unable to achieve their goals?

Conducted live by phone and featuring an outstanding group of specialists from the fields of neuroscience, psychology and coaching, 'How Your Brain Can Save Your Heart (And Your Life)' goes straight to the heart of the matter--the neural networks and specialized functions within the brain that dictate how we think, feel and act in the present moment. Participants will be introduced to 4 brain-based strategies which research has shown to be critical for breaking-down old habits and building-up new neural networks that support healthier lifestyle choices. Along the way, they'll learn how to enlist the brain's 'higher order' functions--such as visualization, 'self talk', appreciative thinking, intention, and 'mindfulness'-- to do the work. Participants will learn to:

 
  • recognize any 'immunity to change' that may have played an important role in their lives, but now undermines efforts to create new lifestyle habits
  • engage their 'character strengths' to overcome obstacles, prevent relapse, and reinforce their determination to succeed
  • use 'calming techniques' to release the amygdala's grip on the sympathetic nervous system, which constricts blood vessels, accelerates our heart rate and inhibits digestion, while allowing the cortex to play a more dominant role in managing stress
  • foster 'heart-felt positivity' to encourage hope, optimism and resilience
  • naturally stimulate specific 'peptides and hormones' in the brain that not only make us feel good, but directly benefit the health of our heart, quality of relationships, and chances of living longer

"Even with the best intentions," states Paul Nelson, M.Ed., a Harvard-trained behavior-change specialist and Director of HeartCoaches, "only one person in seven is able to make the lifestyle changes that are required to save their life. Before anyone even starts a new diet, exercise routine or smoking cessation program, I recommend that they first learn how the brain works to create and sustain new behaviors. Then they'll have a much better chance of acquiring new habits and maintaining a healthy heart."

The cost of this 5-week interactive teleclass, which also gives participants an opportunity to see what it's like working with an experienced wellness coach, is $298. A new class is starting soon.
