Exercise in Increments
We all know how important keeping healthy and being active is. But unfortunately, it's not that easy for most of us.
Watch the video above to learn more about exercising with asthma, or read the written summary below.
If you want to exercise for 30 minutes but your asthma just can't hack it, you can split this up into 10-minute increments throughout the day.
Use Your Inhalers!
If your asthma is prone to get in the way of your exercising, be sure to use your inhalers before you start, during (if you need them), and finally again once you've finished.
If you want to exercise outside but the cold triggers your asthma, wrap a scarf or something similar around your nose and your mouth. This will heat the air before it gets into your airway making it much easier for you to breathe.
If exercising outside is an absolute no-go because your asthma just can not stand the cold, try light exercising inside. You could use a yoga mat, a treadmill, or a spinning bike.
Keep Your Rescue Inhaler on You
Always keep your rescue inhaler on you at all times. You never know when you might need it.
