- Practice deep relaxed breathing twice daily (before rising in the morning and falling asleep in the evening are often convenient times). Technique: while lying on the back, place one hand over the chest and the other on the lower abdomen: inhale deeply; first feel the lower lungs fill with air as the lower hand rises, then the upper lungs fill as the upper hand rises; exhale deeply; feel the upper then lower lungs empty of air.
- Do aerobic exercise (according to an individual’s fitness level.) This may be walking, running, biking, swimming, or aerobic dance, for example. Sessions should last 20 to 45 minutes and be done three to five times weekly.
