Exercising with Asthma

If you have asthma, weight bearing exercises like walking, jogging can be a wonderful ally. It can reduce the effort of breathing, alleviate stress, and improve overall immunity-all of which decrease the risk and severity of attacks But, to workout comfortably without wheezing, chest tightness, or breathlessness, one must try these tips:

  • Ease into it. Buffer your workout with at least 10 minutes of warm-up and cool-down time because sudden changes in activity can trigger breathelessness.
  • Stay hydrated. Dehydration impairs breathing, so drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout.
  • Watch the weather. During peak allergy seasons, extreme hot or cold, or when air quality is poor, move your workout indoors.
  • Keep meds handy. Use your inhaler at the first sign of symptoms.
