Breathe easy for healthy lungs
- Take the stairs! Walking about 15 minutes at a time, three to four times a day, can improve breathing.
- Get at least seven servings of fruits and vegetables a day for a high amount of antioxidants (vitamin C, E, selenium and beta-carotene).
- Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Your nasal passages are designed to filter the air and regulate its temperature and humidity.
- Work in 10-20 crunches a day. By strengthening your abdominal and chest muscles, you're also practicing deep breathing.
