A higher HRV has been linked to better immunity to stressful situations, and is said to bestow a greater survival advantage on individuals.

I have more energy, more patience with people and I feel less angry with the world – more appreciative of things generally. I also feel lighter and much more motivated to attempt and complete tasks. I feel calmer and more at peace – definitely less volatile.
