Meditation isn’t for everyone. It can be really challenging to get into a meditative state which is why I am an advocate for breathwork. The power of your breath is easy to access and brings just as many benefits as meditation. When you have deep states of resource and are using your breath to access something deeper within you, you can hold it all without feeling as heavy. You have to increase your capacity, by increasing your energy. This isn’t about biohacking or having a cup of coffee because true energy comes from within our bodies. In this episode, I am talking about why you should consider the breathwork modality and a simple 90-second breathwork experience you can use whenever you need to tap into your wellbeing. 

 

Inside this episode I jam on:

 

  • A story about how I struggled with meditation and found breathwork
  • Why it’s so hard to feel yourself when you’re congested with the emotionality of other people
  • Why you need to use breathwork to unhook the mind
  • The beautiful shift of getting out of your mind and into your body
  • A simple 90-second breathwork experience
  • How breathwork gives you access without waiting for an opening

She shared what it really means to unlock your bravery and how you can do that by taking action and doing the things that make you realize, “if I can do that, I can do anything!” She gets real about honing in on your embodied feminine self and what feminism means to her (and why so many people have a problem with feminism). We also chat about unbinding yourself from trauma, issues she sees women face in their careers and her new book, The Most Powerful You.

You've been given everything you could possibly wish for from your creator. You have to wake up every day and choose to reclaim your joy. It doesn't have to be extravagant. We're all born with this ability to extract joy from life and one of the access points to pleasure is the breath. That's why I am so passionate about breathwork... While so many people have been conditioned to live in the fight or flight, it's not good for the body or mind. You deserve to be in the rest and digest state where your body can stabilize the state of ease. In this episode, I’ll explain how and why breathwork is so powerful.

 

Inside this episode I jam on:

  • The two ways you can use breathwork: integrative and meditative
  • How breathwork activates the limbic system and can open up emotions and memories
  • The physical benefits of breathwork: decreased cortisol, decreased size of amygdala, activation of the vagus nerve
  • How breathwork can improve vagal tone which in turn, improves your response to stress
  • Why you should use breathwork to release suppressed emotions 
  • How you can use breathwork to decrease human suffering and increase human consciousness
  • Why you are the drug that your body is looking for

When people come to me and tell me about how much breathwork has changed their life, it’s so exhilarating. I love bringing this work to so many people and helping them to understand how they can use it to overcome life’s challenges.

In this episode, I’ll be sharing what those are along with two different types of breathwork practices you can incorporate into your daily life. 

 

Inside this episode I jam on:

  • How this practice isn’t just about anxiety and stress
  • How so many people have suppressed anger that they need to deal with
  • Why pain (especially period pain) can be relieved through breathwork
  • Sounding the vibration of pain out through the mouth
  • How breathwork helps you to open the heart and overcome heartbreak

If you’re a highly ambitious person and have big goals set for yourself, you’ll need to learn to be a little more selfish. We only have 24 hours in a day and to achieve everything that your heart desires, you might have to stop overgiving to your partner, children, friends, coworkers, acquaintances and everyone else in your life. 

 

In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking to Lori Kennedy. Lori is a business coach for health and wellness professionals who started her own business after certain life circumstances came together and made her take action. She and I chat about what strategies she uses to find her wellbeing in times of uncertainty. Lori shares why you need to claim more time back in your day to chase your dreams and what you can do to take back that time. She also talked about her own process for finding her greater why and the sacrifices she’s made to grow her business as a single parent. 

 

Lori Kennedy is a divorced #hockeymom of 2 (girl and boy). Her professional designation is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist but she doesn’t self-identify with that title anymore. She’s the host of The Business Of Becoming Podcast and the producer of the The Wellness Business Summit Annual Live Event! Lori is a self-proclaimed introvert, highly sensitive person, intuitive empath and is very tone deaf. She’s a lover of the Universe and G-D (in a spiritual and non-religious way), karaoke, pierogies, Beyonce, fresh sheets and dance walks – usually with Beyonce playing in her ears. 

 

Inside this episode, Lori shares:

  • How watching others grow makes her feel most alive
  • How Lori got into her career as a business coach
  • What she believes about creating the person you want to be in the world and how life circumstances caused her to take action

  • What you can do to get in a better relationship with yourself during this time
  • Looking at the patterns in your relationship

Do you find yourself running into issues with the landscape of today’s dating culture? There’s so much toxicity out there with swipe culture. Not only that, but a lot of people are also sabotaging good relationships with toxic traits. The truth is that healthy relationships take work, and that’s exactly why I had to bring on today’s guest, John Kim. John is an author and a licensed therapist who practices transparency and shares his own story (which is not the norm in the therapy industry)! He talks about how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting dating culture. He shares his own experience of learning to surrender. We chat about what people do to sabotage their relationships and how your “relationship buds,” like taste buds will change over time. John also shares how to figure out the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship. 

About John Kim:
John Kim is an author and licensed therapist who pioneered the online life coaching movement eight years ago, after going through a divorce and rebirth. He started a blog called The Angry Therapist and quickly built a devoted following of fans who loved the frank and authentic insights that he freely shared on social media. He pulled the curtain back and showed himself by practicing transparency and sharing his story, something therapists are taught NOT to do. Kim became known as an unconventional therapist who worked out of the box by seeing clients at coffee shops, on hikes, and the gym. He quickly built a coaching team of his own and launched a sister company called JRNI COACHING, an online coaching school. Kim’s current obsession is sending out thousands of daily texts to change the way we change.

Inside this episode, John shares:

  • How meaning makes John feel most alive
  • The difference John’s found between meaning and purpose 
  • The human cycles of creation and destruction
  • What John’s seeing with the dating scene and swipe culture
  • His vision of healthy collaborative dating 
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting dating culture
  • His experience of learning to surrender
  • How defense mechanisms cause you to be a more lukewarm version of yourself
  • The toxic things people do to sabotage their relationships 
  • How to unbind and rewire your addiction to fantasy relationships
  • Why healthy relationships take work
  • How your “relationship buds” change over time
  • Discerning between healthy love and unhealthy love

The connection between anger and addiction isn’t something we can sweep under the rug. It’s clear that these have a direct correlation with each other and that’s something I talked about with today’s guest Karen Salmansohn. Suppressed anger in our body can cause us to want to numb and distract ourselves from it, which for Karen translated into food addiction.

She shares strategies to help bring yourself to a place of wellbeing even with the heightened anxiety of today’s world and how to lean into the contractions of life so we can enjoy the beauty on the other side.

Inside this episode, Karen shares:

  • How the people she loves make her feel most alive
  • Leaning into contractions so you can enjoy the beauty on the other side of it
  • Why Karen has a desire to help the world through her work
  • Why people’s childhood programming leads to a resistance of going after what’s good for them
  • How many people self-sabotage and “keep down with the Joneses” to maintain their masochistic equilibrium
