Lifestyle Modifications

Improve your Breathing

LIFESTYLE-MODIFICATIONSWhen living with lung disease, lifestyle modifications are some additional ways you can improve your breathing.

  • Stop smoking today. Breaking the habit is a definitive way to slow the advancement of lung disease. It is difficult, but making the decision to quit is the first step. Consult your doctor regarding options.
  • Exercise. After consulting your doctor, initiate an exercise routine. Exercise is proven to improve pulmonary strength and endurance. Thereby, helping you battle with lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and emphysema.
  • Eat Well. Maintaining a healthy weight is important. Talk to your doctor about a nutrition program that will work for you.
  • Be Aware of your Environment. COPD flare-ups are caused by many environmental triggers. Allergens and chemicals are two of the most common, but different factors are triggers for different people. Awareness of this is key. And if you are able to pinpoint environmental factors that are irritants for you, make a conscious effort to avoid them.
