Exercise! Your lungs get stronger when you make them work. Run, bike, swim, or pick up something heavy, anything that gets you using those lungs will help.
Staying hydrated is important for every part of your body and especially your lungs. Healthy lungs have a thin layer of mucus coating them, and drinking enough water throughout the day helps to keep that mucosal lining from building up.
What’s better for your body than its natural environment? Getting outside of your house and taking in fresh air is an extremely easy way to make sure your lungs are getting fresh, clean, and healthy air.
Plants keep air fresh by removing toxins and carbon dioxide from the air. Having some plants around the house will improve your overall air quality and maintain a healthy level of oxygen indoors.
Good hygiene is good for your lungs. Making a point to regularly clean your hands and phone will help keep bacteria and viruses out of your lungs. This is especially important during flu season!
Many artificial scents in candles, essential oils, and air fresheners irritate the lungs and cause respiratory inflammation. Replacing them with all-natural scent products will help your lungs keep breathing strong.
