Our lungs are precious, and the most important part of our respiratory system. These organs are responsible for absorbing and distributing all the oxygen that our body needs in order to function normally.

Fitness: It is important to keep your lungs fit. Regular physical activity is the only consistent way to ensure the fitness of your respiratory system. The more you use your lungs and diaphragm, the more fit they will - just like any other muscle in your body.

Protection: The more careful we are about what we breath into our lungs, the less chance there is that they will be damaged. There are some inadvertent or accidental situations that we can be careful to avoid - staying inside on very smoky or smoggy days, wearing masks when using harmful chemicals, etc. But there are also some very deliberate things people do that harm their lungs - smoking is the worst. And the easiest way to avoid smoking, is never to start.

Most respiratory diseases are air-borne. It is important to breathe clean, fresh air. Cover your mouth and nose when you are in a crowed place or when the air is heavily polluted. Wearing a mask over the nose is now common in urban areas and in factories.

Respiratory ailments are contagious. Colds and coughs are visible signs of most respiratory ailments. Do not stay too close to people who have them. When they cough or sneeze, germs are sure to be in the air. You may catch these germs and get sick, too. In addition, get immunized against flu yearly, get pneumonia vaccine as recommended (based on your age and health history), and make sure you have received the TDaP vaccine at least once to offer protection against pertussis (whooping cough).

Breathing from your abdomen can help as it relaxes your accessory breathing muscles and gets you breathing more naturally as were designed to do. Lie on your back with one hand resting gently on your abdomen and one on resting on your chest, and see which one rises as you breathe. You should aim to keep your chest hand still and abdomen hand rising and falling with your breathing.

If you are an asthmatic, make sure you have the knowledge and skills to keep your condition well-controlled. If you are frequently using your rescue inhaler, it's a sign that you need to add controller medications.

The best way of keeping your respiratory system healthy is with exercise and fresh air. The other thing to do is avoid air pollutants and definatley do not smoke.
poop if you are smoker you can quit, excercise daily,and have a balanced diet and also get medical check ups regularly
