It’s amazing what a deep breath can do, especially when you’re feeling agitated or stressed. Jenny Cheifetz, a certified breathwork facilitator joins us to dive deep into how we can use breathwork as a tool to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, and more. This week, episode 203 of the Positively Living Podcast is about how breathing can calm your body and better your mood!

Jenny Cheifetz is a certified breathwork facilitator and empowerment coach at Jentle Coaching. She helps women find peace, confidence, and self-love so they can finally feel good enough to course-correct toward happiness. She is a wife, mom of two teens and two dogs, native New Englander, and avid podcast listener.  

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, Jenny Cheifetz shares what breathwork is (and is not) and gives you actionable steps to take right now to use breathwork as a tool to manage your anxiety and mood. 

Jenny and I cover the following topics:

  • A glimpse into what a breathwork session with a facilitator may look like.
  • How breathwork helps regulate the nervous system and manages energy. 
  • Simple breathwork techniques you can incorporate into your daily life. 
  • Suggested breathing patterns to help you boost your mood or calm anxiety, depending on what you need in the current moment.  

Breathwork is a form of self-care and (as we have covered many times on the podcast before) self-care is a priority because YOU are a priority.
