Pursed lip breathing works when you find it had to breathe. Learn this now so you won’t panic when you feel short of breath.

Step 1

Breathe in slowly through your nose for 1 count.

Step 2

 Purse your lips as if you were going to whistle.

Step 3

Breathe out gently through pursed lips for 2 slow counts. (exhale twice as slowly as you inhale.)  Let the air escape naturally.  Do not force the air out of your lungs. Keep doing pursed lip breathing until you are not short of breath.
