Aside from controlling symptoms, one of the key goals of asthma treatment is to help you maintain a normal and healthy lifestyle. This includes engaging in regular exercise and other physical activities.
Regular exercise is recommended for people whose asthma is under good control. Exercise helps strengthen your breathing muscles, boosts your immune system, helps you lose excess pounds and maintain a healthy body weight, and creates “feel-good” chemicals (endorphins) in your body that can help stave off depression and stress. All of these benefits can improve your asthma in the long run.
