Tips to improve lung capacity amid coronavirus pandemic

Lungs are one of the most significant organs that keep you alive. A healthy respiratory system is needed to avoid bigger diseases. In this coronavirus pandemic, air quality is not good. Maintaining health capacity has become difficult. However, here are some of the useful tips you can follow to stimulate lung capacity.

Ways to improve lung capacity

Certain exercises such as brisk walking, running, swimming, or cycling will help improve lung capacity. As lockdown has been imposed and gyms are closed, you can walk briskly for a few minutes to boost lung capacity.

People having exercise-induced asthma are directed to take proper precautions. They should warm up for a few minutes before proceeding towards exercise.

Consume an adequate amount of proteins and antioxidants in your diet as they will help improve lung immunity and strengthen respiratory muscles.

Drink a lot of water and stay hydrated to improve the quality of muscles.

Practice deep breathing exercises such as diaphragmatic breathing to broaden lung capacity. Those facing emphysema, bronchitis, and asthma are especially directed to do so.

Try to reduce excess stubborn body weight, as abdominal fat affects lung expansion. The low expansion will reduce lung capacity.

Hygiene and precautions are a must. Try to avoid indoor or outdoor pollution. Stay at home and go out only when needed. If you go out, wear face coverings.

If you are allergic or have flu-like or pneumonia symptoms, you should be vaccinated properly.
Quit smoking and avoid e-cigarettes, flavored smoke (sheesha), and other such items.
