Pursed-lip breathing is an exercise to relieve shortness of breath by slowing the pace of your breathing.

This is particularly useful if shortness of breath is being caused by anxiety.

To try pursed-lip breathing at home, you should:

Sit upright in a chair with shoulders relaxed

Press lips together, keeping a gap between them in the middle

Inhale through the nose for a couple of seconds

Gently exhale through the pursed lips for a count of four

Carry on inhaling and exhaling in this way for 10 minutes

People can try this exercise any time they feel short of breath, and repeat it throughout the day until they feel better.
