Here is a simple breathing exercise that’s incredibly easy to do and can be done anywhere!

Just stop whatever you’re doing, and relax. Then take in a slow, deep breath for 5 seconds, and then exhale slowly and completely for 7 seconds. By exhaling longer than you are inhaling, you will more completely empty your lungs and push out all the stale air that tends to stick around if you are a shallow breather. Breath like this for several minutes and you will feel yourself start to relax and send stress packing.

  2. Recovering from double pnumonia from a bacterial infection this was very helpful. I would like to know I have a lung function test to be done wends is it safe to go ahead and do it? My lung doctor is unaware I am recovering because I saw her back in July for being out of breath. She did an xray and it did not show I had pneumonia,so I assume I caught it after the xray was done. Also is it normal to have chest pains from pneumonia? Last question how should I sleep at night? These question I was going ask Wendy but I'm going to an outside location to do test. I will be making a follow-up with her once teat is complete Wends
