Breath training for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

There are several things you can do to improve your breathing :

  • Relax. Being tense makes it harder to breathe.
  • Breathe out through pursed lips, like when whistling. This slows down your breathing and makes each breath do more good for you...
  • Lean forward while exercising. This also helps control shortness of breath.
  • "Belly breathing" may also help shortness of breath. This is done by allowing your belly to stick out while breathing in and then pulling your belly in while breathing out. Remember to purse your lips when breathing out! Launches!

roxlyngcd@comcast.netAfter a lazy Sunday morning reading, I got on the Treadmill (ozone is up around Denver CO) and walked 2 miles = 33:08 minutes. After dinner 7 minutes on the elliptical, and 25 minutes small weights upper & lower body. Total 65 minutes exercise-and tired.
