Having a good old sing song with my husband. It really does do the old lungs the power of good, need it loud though and something a bit rocky. xx
Ear plugs needed LOL
Good on you Kimmy, I used to attend church, and the best part was the hymn's!
Not bad for someone with severe emphysema. I don't like to say to much I might jinx it, but I've really well since I started taking Azithromycin.
Ditto on that Kimmy - you sing your heart out!
What is your choice of music for the bellows breathing Kim ?
Glad its doing you good
My husband has a huge music collection he likes everything except jazz and country and western. So had a bit of everything while I was dusting. But I'm a 70's teenager so T-Rex, Queen, Bowie, Slade.
Wish I could sing still, I used to really love it. Just sound like a demented frog now though
I can't sing either sound horrendous, just having a laugh and hopefully exercising.
I agree-and it lifts your spirits. But I also got a tip from my chiropractor about a yoga breathing technique that might help. You breathe in for 3 seconds hold it for 3 seconds, breathe in more for 3 seconds hold for 6 seconds then breathe out slowly for 6 seconds. Which is very hard to do but you can do breathe in 2 seconds hold for 2, breathe in for 2 then hold for 4 then breathe out for 4. But I suppose if you cant do that maybe take it down to 1 second? But you get the idea. I'm trying it at least once a day...you never know.
Keep smiling Sue
