How to breathe properly?

In order to do most exercises that help strengthen your lungs, you need to learn how to breathe properly and deeply. One of the methods is diaphragmatic breathing, a technique that allows the lungs to expand and fill in with oxygen:

  • Relax the upper part of your body and place one hand on your belly.
  • Inhale deeply through your nose, letting the air in towards your belly and then exhale as slowly as possible.
  • If your belly contracts during the exhale, you are breathing properly.
  • Repeat this exercise five times. Take a rest after each repetition. Try to repeat this exercise several times throughout the day.

Blowing up a balloon is another commonly recommended lung exercise. You can also take a deep breathe through your mouth and hold it for five seconds – this is the time required to fill in all cells. Then breathe out through your mouth making ‘ha ha ha’ sounds as you exhale, until you feel that there is no more air left in your lungs. Maintaining a good posture can also help. Make sure you keep your back straight at all times. That way your lungs will be able to absorb 30 percent more of air in a natural way.
