Here are few tips for healthy living with COPD to help you avoid acute exacerbations and slow the damage to your lungs:

- See your health care professional regularly even if you feel fine.

- Drink plenty of water. Thick sticky mucus is more likely to get stuck in your lungs and cause problems.

- Get plenty of sleep. If you are too tired, you’re more likely to get sick.

- Get flu shot every year. Check if you are due for a pneumonia and pertussis shot.

- Wash your hands often for 20 seconds with warm water and mild soap. Carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer in case you cannot wash your hands.

- Stay away from crowds, especially during cold and flu season and avoid touching your mouth, eyes, and nose in public to help prevent germs from entering your body.

- Use your own pen, especially when signing in doctor's office.

- Avoid smoke and air pollution. If you smoke, quit smoking. Also it's important to avoid places where others smoke. Secondhand smoke may contribute to further lung damage.

- Purify your home: Ventilate your home by opening windows and running exhaust fans. Do not allow smoking in your home. Minimize dust mites by washing your bed linens weekly, lowering the humidity level, and keeping pets off your furniture. Keep floors and carpets clean. Install an air filtration system. Have your air conditioner inspected regularly for mold and mildew in the duct work. Reduce your exposure to household chemicals such as paints, varnishes, and cleaning products.

- Discuss breathing positions and relaxation techniques with doctor that you can use when you're short of breath.

- Exercise regularly. It may seem difficult to exercise when you have trouble breathing, but regular exercise can improve your overall strength and endurance and strengthen your respiratory muscles. Discuss with your doctor which activities are appropriate for you.
