3. Practice Breathing Exercises
Practice pursed lip breathing frequently – at least twice a day. That way if you have an asthma attack, you will know how to exhale slowly with your lips pursed as a means to reduce your symptoms. Ask your health care provider to recommend other breathing techniques that strengthen the lungs, expand your lung capacity and prevent secretions from accumulating in them.
