4 Tips for Breathing Easier in a Mask.

PEAK FORM MEDICAL CLINIC- Gives us some timely advice, as we don’t seem to be doing too well without masks on, may as well make the best of the situation and breathe the best way that you can.

Because we all need to breathe correctly.

We’re living in unprecedented times, when a face mask has become part of our daily wardrobe. None of us particularly enjoys wearing a mask all day, but we do so to keep ourselves and others safe from a virus notorious for going undetected. With all the mask-wearing, it can feel challenging to breathe deeply or fully. There’s been a lot of talk lately about masks and breathing but rest assured: wearing a mask does not increase your chances of inhaling carbon dioxide. We promise.

That said, wearing a mask isn’t entirely comfortable for those of us not used to wearing one all day. It can force you to breathe differently, which may lead to headaches or feeling light-headed. The main concern is that you’re taking short, shallow breaths and wearing a mask will potentially exacerbate the issue. What can you do about it so you can literally breathe easier?

  1. Take breaks from wearing the mask.
Find a place outside and remove your mask for a short break.

2. Breathe through your nose.

Don’t breathe through your mouth all the time.

3. Take longer, slower breaths.

Short shallow breaths.

4. Practice deep breathing in the morning and evening.

Make time in the morning & evening, just to breathe.
