7 Ways to Support Your Lungs

Your lungs are constantly working for you (even when you’re asleep!), so why not return the favor? Following these simple tips will help you maximize lung health, minimize respiratory problems, and give your lungs the support they need.

This is some text inside of a div block.

1. Put them to work. 💪

Exercise! Your lungs get stronger when you make them work. Run, bike, swim, or pick up something heavy, anything that gets you using those lungs will help.


2. Drink plenty of water. 🌊

Staying hydrated is important for every part of your body and especially your lungs. Healthy lungs have a thin layer of mucus coating them, and drinking enough water throughout the day helps to keep that mucosal lining from building up.


3. Make time for fresh air. 🍃

What’s better for your body than its natural environment? Getting outside of your house and taking in fresh air is an extremely easy way to make sure your lungs are getting fresh, clean, and healthy air.


4. Get plants in the house. 🌿

Plants keep air fresh by removing toxins and carbon dioxide from the air. Having some plants around the house will improve your overall air quality and maintain a healthy level of oxygen indoors.


5. Sanitize your hands and phone. 🧼

Good hygiene is good for your lungs. Making a point to regularly clean your hands and phone will help keep bacteria and viruses out of your lungs. This is especially important during flu season!


6. Use all-natural scents. 👃

Many artificial scents in candles, essential oils, and air fresheners irritate the lungs and cause respiratory inflammation. Replacing them with all-natural scent products will help your lungs keep breathing strong.


7. Avoid air pollution. 🌆

When you live in a city, air pollution seems unavoidable. However, there are steps you can take to mitigate your exposure. Doing things like getting an air purifier for your home and moving your outdoor exercising to areas outside of urban centers can significantly reduce your intake of pollutants in the air.

While some are easier than others, all seven tips can help improve your air quality, lung function, and overall health.
