How to make lungs healthier:

Lungs play a great role in our body but we don’t often appreciate or take care of it until we get to experience breathing problems and so we notice. All cells in our body need oxygen, which is made possible by breathing. Without enough oxygen, people are bound to face respiratory problems or even worse heart problems. 

Our lungs only function 50% most of the time, since daily life activities don’t often play a role in helping the lungs to their full capacity. So to nurse the lungs to clear up the buildup toxins and tar, we need to push them to their full capacity
Given below are some tips on how to keep your lungs healthy and clean,

. Straightening your posture like sitting tall and reaching overhead, is the utmost need for good breathing.

. Lungs need as much water as the whole body so for that always stay hydrated.

. Join a breathing club as it helps to teach proper breathing techniques.

Staying active by doing everyday exercises or add some energetic activities to your daily routine.

. Take deep breaths. Deep breathing helps the lungs reach their full capacity.

. Use diaphragmatic breathing because it helps the lungs to separate from the organs in the abdomen. It gives lungs more space

. Laughing also increases lung capacity, as it forces enough stale air out of the lungs and makes space for fresh air to enter.

.Increasing the duration of taking and out taking of breaths can be beneficial for increasing lung capacity. Once you start practicing it in your daily life, it will eventually become a habit.
