Coping with a lung condition

Lung conditions such as COPD, asthma or bronchitis all have varying levels but all patients can help to cope to make daily life more manageable.

Remember that with anything you must always have someone to talk to; this can be a family member, neighbour, work colleague or your nurse but talking really helps to understand and resolve any problems or worries. Joining a group that are also experiencing the same journey will help as you can all relate, help and support one another.

If you have breathlessness learn the breathing techniques from your doctor or support group to understand how to easily control your airways.

Also remember to always make time for yourself; whether this is reading, walking, travelling or another favourite hobby; always do activities that make your happy and give you a sense of enjoyment.
