4. You let stress affect your breathing.

Stress tends to affect the way we breathe, taking our standard long, deep breaths and turning them into quick, shortened gasps. Not only that, but studies have also shown stress to be connected to overeating and obesity, the latter of which can make breathing even more difficult. If you’re feeling overwhelmed,  try taking some time out for yourself. Try meditation, simple yoga poses or just a mindfulness exercise. Anything that allows you to focus on your breathing has been shown to reduce stress.

    Ihave severe copd and i can’t believe the differance in me with the deep breathing i feel so much better wish i had done it a long time ago. And it is hard to concentrate on it but well worth the trouble to make sure u do it right.

    Learnig to breath properly and “making it a habit” was the most difficult part of learning to control and manage COPD for me . . and it’s been well over a score of years since my emphysema diagnosis, over a decade since the COPD diagnosis and there are occasions I have “anxiety or even stress attacks” because I can’t pull in that breath I need !
