October is mental health month and the theme this year is Tune in. Breathwork helps us tune in to our bodies and be present in the moment. It increases our confidence and reduces the feeling of overwhelm, fear or anxiety.
I’ve been practising breathwork for a few years now and love the physical and emotional benefits I feel. This week I connected with Jennylee from Breathe and Be You to understand more about this simple and effective tool we can all use to improve our ‘Mental Wealth’ as Jennylee puts it.
At the end of our conversation, Jennylee shares 2 basic breathwork techniques that you can do anywhere to feel a sense of calm and reduce overwhelm.

See my other articles to find more ways to increase your confidence and reduce stress and anxiety or the impact that long term fear, stress and anxiety has on our nervous systems.
With a career in work health and safety, I’ve always understood the importance of mental health and how anxiety and overwhelm can diminish an individual’s confidence. I’ve been on a journey of recovery from burnout and love sharing the tools and techniques that have helped me along the way.
