Top 5 Exercises For Short...



Exercising can be helpful in managing shortness of breath. Physical activity can strengthen the muscles used for breathing and improve lung function, which can help reduce symptoms of shortness of breath.
It's important to start with light exercises and gradually increase the intensity and duration as your lung function improves.

1.Breathing Control, Lips

Take a breath in through your nose, as if you are smelling something.
Pucker your lips like you are getting ready to blow out candles on a birthday cake.
Breathe out very slowly through pursed-lips, taking two to three times as long as the time spent to breathe in at the start of the exercise.
Continue on as directed.

2.Diaphragmatic Breathing

Take a slightly deeper than normal breath.
Use your stomach muscles to make a series of 3 rapid exhalations with the airway open, making a "ha, ha, ha" sound.
Follow this by controlled diaphragmatic breathing and a deep cough if you feel mucus moving.

3.Breathing Control

Sit upright in a chair or on a bed with your legs supported.
Relax your breathing.
Take a gentle breath in followed by a gentle breath out.
When you have breathed out, pinch your nose and hold your breath.
When you get the first signs that you need to breathe in, release your fingers, and gently breathe in through your nose.
Continue to breathe gently in and out of your nose, avoiding taking deep breaths.

4.Breathing Device Positive Expiratory Pressure Mask (PEP)

Begin by relaxing your breathing.
Place the PEP mask firmly to your face.

After using the device you may do some expiratory huffs followed by a cough to clear your chest

Place your hands on the lower part of your ribs.

When you feel you have filled your chest with air, hold your breath for 3-5 seconds and then gently breathe out through your mouth.
