LIVING WITH COPD

6 TIPS TO GETTING AND STAYING MORE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE

Physical activity can help your body to use oxygen better, building your energy levels. This can mean that you’re able to do more without getting breathless.

It’s a good idea to talk to your health care team before you start, so you can figure out what the right level of activity is for you. And then it’s all about finding something that you enjoy and can fit into your day.

  • Little and often. Pick activities that you like and start by doing what you can, at least 10 minutes at a time. Every bit adds up, and the health benefits increase as you spend more time being active. If one activity, like swimming, doesn’t appeal to you, find something that does. The point is to get out there and move!
  • Make it part of your day. Try to find things that you can easily add into your existing routine. Even getting off the bus one stop early or parking the car further from the store will get you moving. The key thing is not to overdo it and to rest if you feel breathless
  • Find something you love. If you enjoy it, you're more likely to keep doing it. So if dancing to your favorite songs on the radio for 10 minutes lifts your spirits, then go for it! Or perhaps taking a walk in your favorite park is more your thing
  • Strengthen your upper body. Doing exercises which strengthen your upper body can help strengthen your respiratory muscles. If the gym’s not for you, you could try lifting cans of food instead
  • Strengthen your legs. This has been shown to improve overall shortness of breath and physical stamina
  • Breathe slowly. Whatever activity you’re doing, remember to breathe slowly and in through your nose to warm the air before it goes to your lungs, and out slowly through pursed lips

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

  • BEVESPI AEROSPHERE combines an anticholinergic, glycopyrrolate, and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicine, formoterol fumarate. LABA medicines, such as formoterol, when used alone can increase the risk of serious asthma-related events, including hospitalizations and death from asthma problems. When an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) and LABA are used together, this risk is not significantly increased
  • BEVESPI AEROSPHERE is not for the treatment of asthma. It is not known if BEVESPI AEROSPHERE is safe and effective in people with asthma
  • Do not use BEVESPI AEROSPHERE to treat sudden symptoms of COPD. Always have a rescue inhaler with you to treat sudden symptoms
