Living with COPD

Learn some helpful COPD management techniques and tips.

Stop smoking

Quit smoking

Eating healthy

Eat well
You need energy to manage COPD, and a healthy diet can help. If you’re overweight, losing weight can make it easier to breathe while you go about your day. Talk to your doctor before starting any nutrition program.

Rescue inhaler

Be prepared
Always keep your rescue medication with you for sudden symptom flare-ups. Avoid known COPD triggers (like dust or smoke), and stay inside when outdoor air quality is poor.


Stay active
Move! Getting active now is essential if you want to stay active in the long term. Consult with your doctor before adding exercise, which may help improve your overall strength, including the muscles you use to breathe.


Keep it simple
Give yourself extra time to do everyday activities. Simplify basic tasks and chores. For example, keep items you use often within easy reach. Choose clothing and shoes that are easy to put on and take off.
