It’s not an exaggeration when I say lungs are one of the most vital organs in our body. I mean, it holds the oxygen which is required for our very survival. But studies suggest that the capacity of lungs begin to deteriorate with increased age unless we maintain it.
We often remain complacent towards our lungs unless a chronic condition appears which severely affects the functioning of the lungs. But as the elders say, “Prevention is better than cure”. There are simple breathing exercises and health tips that would keep our lungs ever-young and maintain its prime.
- Diaphragmatic breathing
- Simple deep breathing
- Counting your breaths
- Correcting your posture
- Staying hydrated
- Staying active
Following these simple exercises along with a healthy diet and exempting from excess alcohol and smoking will enable a long life free from any lung conditions.
