Build up your lungs
The best way to avoid disease and COVID 19 is to strengthen your lungs and what better time to take a deep breath than in the spring. Have you noticed how clear the air has become? People are driving less with only a few airplanes in the sky, why not take advantage of this rare occurance. Step outside, the air is crisp, clean, and feels great.
There are many breathing practices on the web; I will share a few with you. Some will profess to breathe through your mouth to bring more oxygen to your lungs; others say breathe through your nose to moisten the air and avoid a dry cough. Find the one that suits you best.
Pick a breathing method to suit you
