Another way that you can self-manage your asthma is to exercise on a regular basis. Regular exercise can strengthen your heart and lungs so that they don't have to work as hard. Aim for 30 minutes of exercise on most days. If you haven’t been active, start slowly and try to gradually increase your activity over time.
Keep in mind that cold-weather exercises, such as skiing, are more likely to cause wheezing. If you do exercise in cold weather, wear a face-mask to warm the air you breathe, and don't exercise if the temperature is below zero. Activities such as golf, walking and swimming are less likely to trigger attacks, but be sure to discuss any exercise program with your provider.
